Amazing experience

Seeing Queenstown is beautiful from the ground but it’s a whole new experience seeing it from the sky. Our pilot Ben was amazing and really made the trip with his local knowledge. Would highly recommend The helicopter Line to anyone looking for an amazing Queenstown experience. We will definitely be going back.

Get to the Chopper!

What a great experience with such friendly crew at the Helicopter Line. After 2 false starts with the weather over the last 2 days, definitely worth the wait...

Helicopter flight

Loved the view and ride - was amazing. Pilot was great. But very very disappointing when it says 30 minute flight, you pay a lot of money, to then only get a 13 minute ride, including the take off, alpine landing and landing again….. a lot of money for 13 minutes as I timed it.

Fab experience with amazing snow views but…….

Booking and office staff were amazing and very accommodating with moving booking to ensure we could get a snow landing however the negative would have to be the pilot. Didn’t engage, didnt commentate much and the couple of times he did it wasn’t very informative. Seemed bored while waiting for us on the snow which he probably was but that’s his job right and then hurried us back into helicoptor quite rudely. Made an amazing experience less fun than it could have been. Such a shame as it was a first for us and a friendlier pilot could have made it the best experience ever.
