Flights offered include Lord of the Rings film site tours, scenic helicopter flights into Nelson’s three National Parks - Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes, backcountry trout fishing and luxury cuisine heli - adventures with The Food Source.
Our family have been operating helicopters in Nelson and the surrounding national parks for over 30 years and we are now the 3 generation of helicopter pilots flying for the company.
Our signature tour is The Food Source – A luxury cuisine adventure: Experience New Zealand in the best possible way ... a stunning private heli charter where our backyard meets true luxury. With The Food Source, cooking is about pure, quality ingredient gathering. You will travel in style to award winning vineyards and remote locations to collect our region's signature wines and freshest produce. After sourcing your produce, you will head back to the “kitchen” to cook up a culinary storm.
Your “kitchen” may be a table on a mountain top or bbq grill on the beach and your personal chef will be none other than internationally renowned (award winning & Michelin trained) chef, Matt Bouterey.
This will be the ultimate food adventure combined with stunning sightseeing and a real kiwi experience.
We invite visitors to experience New Zealand’s newest luxury helicopter experience and discover an iconic offering amidst the wonders of the top of the South Island. Fly with us for a welcoming, signature guided adventure with amazing food.
