Loved every minute of our helicopter flight. Fantastic to see the Mount, ocean, country side and Tauranga from above. David the pilot was excellent and Nicole on the desk made us feel relaxed and welcomed. Loved the safety film with the humour - I watched it all. 😂🤣

We love it when our customers get a kick off our safety briefing but of course, only enough to still appreciate the safety itself was great having you all on board to see the beautiful bay from above :)
