Amazing Location

We’re based in Motueka, on the doorstep of New Zealand’s most iconic National Park – the Abel Tasman.

Snow capped mountains, fresh rivers, the deep green of native bush, dazzling golden beaches and crystal clear waters. This is an iconic destination to be experienced year round but there is something truly remarkable about winters here – with its blue skies and settled calm weather.

Exceptional Air Adventures

Take a helicopter ride to an idyllic remote spot and soak it all in, take a scenic tour on a Cessna, or be delivered to luxurious resorts and retreats the travel world raves about.

Fly directly to your hiking, biking, fishing, hunting or wine tasting destination and put the time saved by flying with us into relishing being there.

We are a team of aviation professionals who are inventive, passionate, and know this area so well we take you places few have seen.

It’s non-stop smiles up here, and fun is always on the agenda!

  • “I had an amazing time during my scenic flight over the Abel Tasman park. So beautiful! It made me enjoy the park a lot more and I’m so happy I decided to go. The pilot was really friendly and told us interesting facts about the park, but he also gave us lots of time to just admire the view.”
