Heliview is a small family-owned company specialising in passenger flights. Because we don't do agricultural spraying or seismic work, we have good availability for your scenic or charter flight at short notice.
A trip to New Zealand is not complete without experiencing the beautiful Taranaki region from the air with Heliview. Fly over New Plymouth and the amazing coastline and the 8,260ft (2518m) summit of spectacular Mount Taranaki (Mt Egmont National Park). Check out Taranaki heli flights and prices under Taranaki Flights.
What about a scenic flight over the Central Plateau? We are based out of Ohakune, the southern gateway to the Tongariro National Park World Heritage Site at the foot of Mt Ruapehu, also known as the best apres-ski capital of the North Island. Fly over the ski fields, Mt Ruapehu, Mt Tongariro, Mt Ngauruhoe, the Tongariro Crossing, Crater Lakes and much more. Check out Central Plateau flight options and prices (from Ohakune) under Mt Ruapehu Flights.

We are Qualmark endorsed and hold an Enviro-Silver award. We are a member of the Tourist Flight Operators and an inaugural member of the New Zealand Helicopter Association, ensuring that we maintain top quality procedures and facilities for our customers.
