We had an absolute burner of a weekend over at Waiheke, overindulging in tasting and food!! Thanks again Lizzy for all your assistance and to Richard and finally Kieran - that was an epic trip for the memory books!! Have a great year and all the best.

It was an absolutely amazing experience flying with you guys and I am glad I choose you for my first ride! I was actually looking around for you to thank you in person yesterday. Amish was so impressed that he called me at work today just to tell me that he was still thinking about our flight and the whole experience and how exciting the whole thing was! So our Valentine’s Day was super fun! Stuart and Riaan were such good hosts and super friendly and genuinely nice people too! You guys have a great staff I must say! I am thinking of visiting you guys again in a few months once my parents come and visit me. My dad was super excited with the videos I took and wants to ride in a helicopter too! Hopefully I will get to see you then. You have been such a pleasant person to deal with!

Our pilot, Richard took us up and he was very entertaining!!! My husband, Terry was blown away as was I.  It was worth the surprise! We unblindfolded him as we placed him in front of the helicopter.  He was speechless. Lizzy, it was an awesome experience and well worth the spend just to see Terry's expression.  Thank you to Stuart, Richard and yourself for the wonderful customer service experience.  I'm now planning a Waiheke trip for Terry and I and we will definitely be using Helicopter Me for the experience. I will be in touch when the money is in sight. Thanks again for a wonderful service.

You guys handled the disrupt well and we were still able to have a fantastic day and help our friends celebrate their 50th's in a truly memorable way. We're happy that you prioritized everyone's safety and still found a way to pull it off. We continue to be very happy with your pilots, machines, and service, and we'll keep coming back and telling our friends. You truly didn't need to send us a bottle of wine but we'll gratefully accept it as another sign of your top notch service.

We had a fabulous day on Waiheke and our friends loved it too. A great celebration and memory for them, mission accomplished. I am thinking they may want to do it again too! Please tell Richard we missed him on the way back :) Thanks!

A quick message to let you know that Bob had his 94th Birthday flight, with his daughters (Rob and Annie), earlier today. I wanted to let you know that he absolutely loved every second of his ride, as did the girls. We were all particularly impressed with the friendliness and professionalism displayed by your team. They put Bob at his ease and went out of their way to get him briefed, comfortably strapped in and away on his flight. We, the ground crew, (sons in law) could see his thumbs up long before they touched the ground upon their return. Thanks so much to Helicopter ME in making it an unforgettable experience.  Now we have to figure out what we can do for the 95th, 96th…….!!!

I wanted to gift my wife a helicopter ride for her birthday because it's been a dream of hers to be in a helicopter and choosing Helicopter Me made her dream come true. My wife has a heights phobia so this was a challenge for her, but with such a great pilot she didn't experience any fear, on the contrary it was an intriguing experience for her! And because of her dream I got to go on the ride myself and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The coast to coast trip is beautiful, it allows you to view Auckland's coasts and the famous beaches from a perspective you would never imagine! What can I say we just loved it! And with the excellent customer service and the warm welcome from Lizzy and all of the Helicopter Me team, we are surely going back there again!  Thank you again

We had such an amazing time, it was fantastic. Riaan, was great, very clear about the safety aspects and he pointed out the sights along the way. It turned into a gorgeous afternoon – we were so lucky! Cable Bay really made us feel special and the lunch was beautiful. Thanks so much for your patience in organising – it only took a year for us to organise ourselves! We aren’t sure how we will top that for the rest of our anniversaries!!

The helicopter ride was amazing! A great way to start our day off. Please thank the team and Richard, as he made it really enjoyable and was pretty cheeky which we both enjoyed haha.
From your helicopter base, I took Daneille to a beach near St Heliers to chill with a bottle of wine, and that’s where I proposed. She said yes. Then we went to dinner at Eight at the Langham Hotel. It’s a great restaurant! But the highlight of the day (second to the having Daneille say yes) was definitely the helicopter ride. Definitely coming back again, next time with some of the lads for trip out golfing or fishing.

We just want to say "Thank you all for a great day" it was an amazing day for us. Richard was awesome so friendly a very knowledgeable person. We so enjoyed everything about our day and we especially loved sitting on the rocks admiring our beautiful waters - the view, it was truly amazing. Thank you all for the experience we will never forget. We are going to do this again.

Lizzy, we had a marvellous day made all the more special by our helicopter ride and you beautiful people.  Your warm welcome was wonderful and your pilots really got into the swing of our mystery day.  Richard and Russell were awesome pilots with their commentary and fun.  Our family are all still buzzing.  The Zipline was a hit and no we didn't get any rain.  Lunch at Stonyridge was lovely and everyone was ready for their food by 2.00pm!   Thank you for our bubbly and juice - it was a hit.  I might tell you that we had got through two bottles of bubbly on the Hummer ride over! All in all a wonderful day and we will happily recommend Helicopterme to all our friends.  We will be back.  We really have got a taste for helicoptering! Thank you again!

Huge thanks for all your help, and please give our pilot, Kieran a huge thanks. He gave us such a great flight/commentary, and was really amusing as well! (Something about receiving his licence just that morning, but staying up on YouTube the night before getting flight lessons) - haha - he was a great kidder! Also thanks to him, Liesl saw the proposal message in the sand. Thanks for all you help Lizzy - Te Whau Lodge was an amazing venue for it (thanks so much for the recommendation!). Much appreciated :)!!!

Still on such a massive high from the most adorable and romantic proposal. Got a whole new awesome-as family of schemers who pulled off the whole thing with straight faces. From an epic helicopter flight to Waiheke, to a message in the sand, to the actual proposal with the special note and dress on the bed for me to wear… sisters who did my hair n makeup.. to candles, rose petals, 2000 photos, video and 3D printed ring designed by my most awesome fiancé. This weekend was perfect. Thanks for being such a big part of it, Helicopter Me.

I would just like to say thanks for the ride this weekend - and for staying with us through all our postponements. The flight remained a mystery and surprise for Louise till we pulled into the driveway and she so enjoyed it. The look on her face made it all worthwhile. Our pilot, Richard was excellent (and the “trainee pilot banter” was great for a good laugh!) Thanks again!

A huge big thank you to both Lizzy’s amazing service and to our brilliant pilot. We both had so much fun on Saturday! Ash was so, so shocked! He thought that we were just going on a helicopter flight and was so shocked when we landed at the top of the field at Mudbrick! Such a once in a lifetime opportunity and I just wanted to say a big thank you!

What an amazing day we have had. Everything about the day was just amazing. My cheeks are sore from smiling too much. The chopper ride, gourmet lunch, we had a great day catching fish, 7 snaps and 1 blue cod and the sky gods were perfect. Thank you and the team at Helicopter Me especially our fantastic pilot, you're just awesome! It was a once in a lifetime experience that we both won't forget. Thank you again. We will be telling all our friends and family about you guys for sure. Thanks for organising an unforgettable experience.

Lizzy was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. I used Helicopter Me as part of a corporate thank you gift, and was unsure on a number of details to start with. Nothing was too much hassle for her, and she was able to ensure everything went off without a hitch. The ladies who received the gift had an absolute ball and enjoyed every minute of it. I will never use another company after receiving such fantastic service from Helicopter Me.

As promised, Lizzy sending you few photos taken by my husband Kumud while we had the beautiful ride with Mr Tom in Auckland Sky. It will be in my memory all through my life, as Tom you helped me fly in a helicopter for the first time in my life. You moved away my fear and you also made me view this beautiful city from the sky. It is an experience to cherish. Please be in touch both of you if you are visiting Mumbai any time in future. Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for all of your assistance when planning my wedding flight. Everyone is still talking about my arrival as I’m sure they will continue to do for many years to come! As one of them said to my partner when I was landing "how is anyone meant to top this?" The pilot was amazing especially since I was running very late to get to him so please pass on my thanks. Thank you both so much.

We are so happy and thankful for your service guys, we had so much fun. We recommend the whole experience to everyone we know if they are looking for something different with adventure.

Thanks for your help organising my Dad’s trip on Sunday (especially such a great day of weather!!), he loved every bit of it – he said “The cab driver was a treasure, the helicopter ride was amazing, the food and service at Mudbrick were faultless and a real taste treat”. Hopefully I get to go myself one day! Cheers

It was the perfect conclusion to our wonderful trip Down Under...We are back in the USA and It's cold here right now...snowing every few days. We only wish we had more time to see more of Australia and New Zealand. Definitely need to plan a return trip. Again, thank you so much for your hospitality.

Our flight to Cable Bay was absolutely amazing! We had such a great time and I've told my partner I only want to travel by helicopter now haha. He was totally blown away and told me off for spoiling him. It was amazing and our pilot Kieran was great! He was really lovely! We were so lucky with the weather and yes landing in front of all those people was quite funny and we felt a bit silly; but we had a good laugh. Leaving was stunning because the sun was setting so it was all just perfect. The food & wines were amazing! I've been telling everybody about it! It was just an unforgettable day! I just want to say thank you for ALL your help, you've made this experience incredible right from the get go and you’re a total asset to this company!! Hopefully we'll talk again! I'd love to go back up someday.

The feedback I have received from those who were lucky enough to go along was extremely positive. They were blown away by the very VIP Helicopter, and said the trip and Pilot were absolutely fantastic. They especially loved that a special helicopter pad and path had been mown into the grass especially for their landing. Very VIP. The winery food I’m told was exquisite. They were given a special tour of the winery and welcomed wholeheartedly. I have liked your Facebook page and will let you know if there were any great photos.Thank you so much for all your help and patience.

“I recently had the opportunity to take to the skies with Helicopter Me for a 1/2hr flying lesson in their R22 chopper. After 10 mins of instruction from the lesson I was flying towards the Kaipara Harbour. 20 mins in we had combed over Silverdale and we're heading back to base for some hovering practice. This was a gift given to me for my birthday, and I reckon the memory of this experience will stay with me forever- and no doubt inspire me to go up in the Helicopter Me R22 the next time I'm back in NZ.

Wow what do I say.  Firstly a big THANK YOU to you and your team for making this very special day for me and Julia possible. We had the best day ever.  Not even the weather could ruin a perfect day that we had.  The whole day went perfect and ended even better with Julia saying YES.  Thank you to Heli Me and Pakiri Horse Rides for making this day easy for me to do my thing.  We have told so many people about our proposal and that is the best way to get your name out there I guess.We will keep in touch and tell you all about the wedding but have quite a few months of exciting planning to come first. I don't know how to thank you again but know we are both over the moon and were very impressed about how smoothly and professional your team were.
  • Jeff Bozich

Firstly thank you Lizzy for your contribution and making the booking not only a success but a memorable moment. It was very easy dealing with you and the response and additional suggestions were very quick and helpful. As for the weekend and Saturday in particular, im so happy we were able to make the flight and am very impressed with Richard, the pilot’s weather forecasting skills which ultimately lead to making the trip just in time to beat the wet weather. The flight was amazing and I’m still buzzing out about the experience. I would say the people at Cable Bay definitely made us feel very comfortable and we both enjoyed the food and wine. And yes she did say yes!

Thanks Lizzy and the team at Helicopter Me for the wonderful experience, from our first enquiry to the actual helicopter ride the team made us feel like not just like another fare but people who were welcome aboard.  The email and phone communication was flawless and I really can’t thank the team enough - we had a very overwhelmed and then excited 6 year old birthday boy on our hands! We look forward to flying with you again.

“We had an amazing evening! Ange had no idea what was going on. It wasn't until we rounded the corner of the shed out at Dairy flat that she even knew we were to be climbing into a helicopter.
Ange is not a big fan of flying and has never been in a helicopter, but it’s the take-off and landing in planes that she hates, so I took a punt that a helicopter would be less scary and prayed for a still night. There was a little bit of rain at take-off but when we got out to the coast it had completely cleared up and we had a very smooth flight over. Richard was fantastic and most importantly Ange loved it!!! Dinner at Cable Bay was amazing. The food was phenomenal, and the setting was equally good, we were seated right at the window, enjoying the most incredible views back over Auckland as we ate and drank. Awesome night!! We both loved it! It was a night Ange and I won’t forget!! Thanks for an epic experience!”

“What a lovely experience, we could have flown around for a lot longer. I kept wanting to say slow down to our pilot, Richard as we whizzed passed landmarks and places we thought we recognised. We even saw my brother's property, and our house looked amazing. The weather was perfect and all of our party (especially the birthday boys) enjoyed themselves so much. So THANK YOU for providing a wonderful service!”

“I was so engrossed with everything that I totally lost all account of time!  We saw so much of Auckland from the air.  Much more than I had expected.  The friendly pilot must be congratulated from making the flight so interesting with his comments and general knowledge of the area.  It was also special because my Grand daughter and great grandson shared the amazing experience with me.  Thank you Helicopter Me!”
  • Robert Shotton
“Everything was amazing!!”
  • Ethan Jones
“An amazing experience for all on so many levels – sharing it with my 90 year old Grandfather, and my 4 year old son, it is something we will cherish for a long time to come!  The pilot was informative and kind about all our questions (Young & old), and especially patient with my son.  Having originally thought he would be quite scared once the helicopter started up, the pilot made it fun and talked us through the whole experience which took all nervousness out for him – which is saying something!  He loves his Helicopter Me cap we got him and wears it with pride! The equipment used was amazing being able to take out the noise of the blades, but still being able to talk freely – again making the whole experience for the young & old incredibly enjoyable!  Can’t recommend the team at Helicopter Me more!”
  • Sarah Jones 
Thanks for organizing an unforgettable flight. The weather was nothing but spectacular and Sebastian was over the moon. Pretty sure the pilot got tired after a while from all the questions being asked.
The team was absolutely great.
Thanks heaps!

The flight was awesome!  Gemma is still amazed by the whole thing + it definitely got me a few brownie points! I was originally considering getting her some jewelry for the big milestone but the decision to go for an experience paid off massively!!! Thanks to Lizzy for all the help and effort that made the flight so memorable.  All the thought and ideas that went into the emails you sent me were very kind and much appreciated. I've given on the name of your company to a couple of people at work and will not hesitate recommending you in the future! Thanks for such a wicked day!

It was an absolutely awesome day, if only this could be my new mode of transport. Thank you for making the sun shine. Our pilot, Tim was great and definitely helped make the day so much fun.  A fantastic company which I will highly recommend to everyone! That's another tick on the bucket list.
  • Cat Harding 
We would just like to say that the time we spent with your ground team (and Tim our pilot), not to mention the helicopter flight, was a day we will always remember with great joy.  We were delighted with the hospitality and friendliness which you showed to us and this made us feel very special and we haven't stopped talking about it since. We would have no hesitation in referring your company "Helicopter Me" to anybody who is interested.

I would like to thank Helicopterme for our great experience.  From our first point of contact the service was professional and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.  On the day the team were happy to take photos of us and then off we went.  The pilot was very knowledgeable and there is so much to see in the air of Auckland and country that I would highly recommend taking the Coast tour.  This is a great gift idea for family and friends.  We will be doing it again.  Thanks!

It was a great way to celebrate my 60th birthday and the 2 mates & my son are still talking about it. Richard was a very entertaining & highly competent pilot. The professionalism demonstrated by your organisation from the safety briefing to the spotless storage facility, sets you apart from other operators. I would gladly recommend you to any prospective client.

We flew out to Waiheke Island with Helicopter Me and I proposed over lunch at Cable Bay before flying back. The flights were an incredible experience (even with average weather) and our pilot was extremely friendly. Helicopter Me were very easy to deal with and managed to keep everything a surprise until the last minute. Thanks for an amazing day!

My wife and I, our daughter and son and their partners, had an unforgettable experience with Helicopter Me celebrating my 65th birthday. We organised a trip over to the West Coast and eventually were dropped off on Waiheke for dinner. In all respects Helicopter Me came up trumps. Due to timing issues and difficulties getting a dinner booking we had a number of attempts to get it sorted but Lizzy was extremely helpful all the way.  They had champagne ready for us on arrival and all the crew were very friendly and the pilot was great at putting the nervous ones at ease - the arrival at the airport was the first my family knew about the flights. The flight was exhilarating with a great commentary provided throughout and is an experience that will never be forgotten. Thanks Helicopter Me for a great start to our celebrations.

Charmaine had never been treated to a scenic flight of any kind, so I knew this would take her way out of her comfort zone. All plans had to sealed in secret until we reached Auckland in New Zealand. After many emails and some outstanding coordination and organisation by Lizzy Thoresen at Helicopter Me, we settled on a day and time for the event. Lizzy had to satisfy our tight time frame as well as that of other passengers, and she did this with incredible professionalism. Lizzy provided me with transport timetables and cost of fares to and from Albany.   She met us at the bus stop and after the flight took us back to the bus terminus. Richard, the pilot was extremely friendly and surrendered his knowledge of New Zealand at all stages of the flight. Overall this was the most memorable helicopter flight I have ever had. Oh! And Charmaine has not stopped telling of our wonderful experience.

Would (and have) recommended the experience to anyone.... the crew at Helicopter Me are a friendly and professional bunch. The flight out to the Barrier was stunning and they know some magic fishing spots. Memorable day that went well beyond what I expected.
  • Eric Skilling
What an amazing experience flying with Helicopter Me, simple words cannot describe them. I arranged this surprise trip for my wife’s birthday and we were stuck in the traffic so called them up and they happily waited for us to arrive as we were the last trip for the day. Very welcoming team, very friendly pilot and what an experience …. tooooo good to be true. A life time experience that will remain with us for lifelong. My wife felt very special only because of the welcoming team. Helicopter Me, Thanks for adding these cherished endless memories to our lives. Our kids will also remember this forever.”

I hired Helicopter Me to fly my partner and I to Waiheke last December, and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Stuart and the team were extremely helpful throughout the booking process, and on the day of the flight. They even agreed to help play along with my story in order to keep the true purpose of the flight a surprise for my partner Sarah. The flight was fantastic, and the drop off point at OWhiti Bay was exactly what I had in mind when I first made the booking. The pilot helped us with our bags before departing and leaving us alone on the secluded beach, where the final part of my plan fell into place when Sarah accepted my proposal. Our wedding is planned for exactly a year to the day and we’ll be using helicopters yet again to make the occasion all the more special.
  • Richard Keogh
 
We had taken a friend for a surprise helicopter ride with “Helicopter Me” – the service we received over the phone was outstanding with detailed information of the packages and recommendations.  The helicopter ride was just beautiful and our pilot who took us made the experience one to remember with his humour and knowledge of the area we travelled.  I would recommend Helicopter Me if you are looking to do something special (or just want an experience). The extra service by the lovely ladies at reception was a bonus.”

We have done the Waiheke Vineyard trip twice now and consider it a perfect destination for that special day out, including lunch. The flight down the Bays, over Rangitoto and around the top of Waiheke is simply glorious! Highly recommended!

I just want to say how much we all enjoyed our trip in one of your helicopters to Great Barrier. The pilot was friendly with a great sense of humour spinning some funny jokes. We look forward to our next trip although I must say the next trip must be in one of your bigger, faster machines. Take care and hope to see you all again In the near future

I would just like to say thanks for the ride this weekend - and for staying with us through all our postponements. The flight remained a mystery and surprise for Louise till we pulled into the driveway and she so enjoyed it. The look on her face made it all worthwhile. Our pilot, Richard was excellent (and the “trainee pilot banter” was great for a good laugh!) Thanks again!

Lizzy was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. I used Helicopter Me as part of a corporate thank you gift, and was unsure on a number of details to start with. Nothing was too much hassle for her, and she was able to ensure everything went off without a hitch. The ladies who received the gift had an absolute ball and enjoyed every minute of it. I will never use another company after receiving such fantastic service from Helicopter Me.

As promised, Lizzy sending you few photos taken by my husband Kumud while we had the beautiful ride with Mr Tom in Auckland Sky. It will be in my memory all through my life, as Tom you helped me fly in a helicopter for the first time in my life. You moved away my fear and you also made me view this beautiful city from the sky. It is an experience to cherish. Please be in touch both of you if you are visiting Mumbai any time in future. Thank you very much.

As one of them said to my partner when I was landing "how is anyone meant to top this?" The pilot was amazing especially since I was running very late to get to him so please pass on my thanks. Thank you both so much.

Our flight to Cable Bay was absolutely amazing! We had such a great time and I've told my partner I only want to travel by helicopter now haha. He was totally blown away and told me off for spoiling him. It was amazing and our pilot Kieran was great! He was really lovely! We were so lucky with the weather and yes landing in front of all those people was quite funny and we felt a bit silly; but we had a good laugh. Leaving was stunning because the sun was setting so it was all just perfect. The food & wines were amazing! I've been telling everybody about it! It was just an unforgettable day! I just want to say thank you for ALL your help, you've made this experience incredible right from the get go and you’re a total asset to this company!! Hopefully we'll talk again! I'd love to go back up someday.

The feedback I have received from those who were lucky enough to go along was extremely positive. They were blown away by the very VIP Helicopter, and said the trip and Pilot were absolutely fantastic. They especially loved that a special helicopter pad and path had been mown into the grass especially for their landing. Very VIP. The winery food I’m told was exquisite. They were given a special tour of the winery and welcomed wholeheartedly. I have liked your Facebook page and will let you know if there were any great photos.Thank you so much for all your help and patience.

“I recently had the opportunity to take to the skies with Helicopter Me for a 1/2hr flying lesson in their R22 chopper. After 10 mins of instruction from the lesson I was flying towards the Kaipara Harbour. 20 mins in we had combed over Silverdale and we're heading back to base for some hovering practice. This was a gift given to me for my birthday, and I reckon the memory of this experience will stay with me forever- and no doubt inspire me to go up in the Helicopter Me R22 the next time I'm back in NZ.

Wow what do I say.  Firstly a big THANK YOU to you and your team for making this very special day for me and Julia possible. We had the best day ever.  Not even the weather could ruin a perfect day that we had.  The whole day went perfect and ended even better with Julia saying YES.  Thank you to Heli Me and Pakiri Horse Rides for making this day easy for me to do my thing.  We have told so many people about our proposal and that is the best way to get your name out there I guess.We will keep in touch and tell you all about the wedding but have quite a few months of exciting planning to come first. I don't know how to thank you again but know we are both over the moon and were very impressed about how smoothly and professional your team were.
  • Jeff Bozich

Firstly thank you Lizzy for your contribution and making the booking not only a success but a memorable moment. It was very easy dealing with you and the response and additional suggestions were very quick and helpful. As for the weekend and Saturday in particular, im so happy we were able to make the flight and am very impressed with Richard, the pilot’s weather forecasting skills which ultimately lead to making the trip just in time to beat the wet weather. The flight was amazing and I’m still buzzing out about the experience. I would say the people at Cable Bay definitely made us feel very comfortable and we both enjoyed the food and wine. And yes she did say yes!

Thanks Lizzy and the team at Helicopter Me for the wonderful experience, from our first enquiry to the actual helicopter ride the team made us feel like not just like another fare but people who were welcome aboard.  The email and phone communication was flawless and I really can’t thank the team enough - we had a very overwhelmed and then excited 6 year old birthday boy on our hands! We look forward to flying with you again.

“We had an amazing evening! Ange had no idea what was going on. It wasn't until we rounded the corner of the shed out at Dairy flat that she even knew we were to be climbing into a helicopter.
Ange is not a big fan of flying and has never been in a helicopter, but it’s the take-off and landing in planes that she hates, so I took a punt that a helicopter would be less scary and prayed for a still night. There was a little bit of rain at take-off but when we got out to the coast it had completely cleared up and we had a very smooth flight over. Richard was fantastic and most importantly Ange loved it!!! Dinner at Cable Bay was amazing. The food was phenomenal, and the setting was equally good, we were seated right at the window, enjoying the most incredible views back over Auckland as we ate and drank. Awesome night!! We both loved it! It was a night Ange and I won’t forget!! Thanks for an epic experience!”

So THANK YOU for providing a wonderful service!”

“I was so engrossed with everything that I totally lost all account of time!  We saw so much of Auckland from the air.  Much more than I had expected.  The friendly pilot must be congratulated from making the flight so interesting with his comments and general knowledge of the area.  It was also special because my Grand daughter and great grandson shared the amazing experience with me.  Thank you Helicopter Me!”

“Everything was amazing!!”
  • Ethan Jones
“An amazing experience for all on so many levels – sharing it with my 90 year old Grandfather, and my 4 year old son, it is something we will cherish for a long time to come!  The pilot was informative and kind about all our questions (Young & old), and especially patient with my son.  Having originally thought he would be quite scared once the helicopter started up, the pilot made it fun and talked us through the whole experience which took all nervousness out for him – which is saying something!  He loves his Helicopter Me cap we got him and wears it with pride! The equipment used was amazing being able to take out the noise of the blades, but still being able to talk freely – again making the whole experience for the young & old incredibly enjoyable!  Can’t recommend the team at Helicopter Me more!”
  • Sarah Jones 
Thanks for organizing an unforgettable flight. The weather was nothing but spectacular and Sebastian was over the moon. Pretty sure the pilot got tired after a while from all the questions being asked.

My wife and I, our daughter and son and their partners, had an unforgettable experience with Helicopter Me celebrating my 65th birthday. We organised a trip over to the West Coast and eventually were dropped off on Waiheke for dinner. In all respects Helicopter Me came up trumps. Due to timing issues and difficulties getting a dinner booking we had a number of attempts to get it sorted but Lizzy was extremely helpful all the way.  They had champagne ready for us on arrival and all the crew were very friendly and the pilot was great at putting the nervous ones at ease - the arrival at the airport was the first my family knew about the flights. The flight was exhilarating with a great commentary provided throughout and is an experience that will never be forgotten. Thanks Helicopter Me for a great start to our celebrations.

What an amazing experience flying with Helicopter Me, simple words cannot describe them.

I hired Helicopter Me to fly my partner and I to Waiheke last December, and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Stuart and the team were extremely helpful throughout the booking process, and on the day of the flight. They even agreed to help play along with my story in order to keep the true purpose of the flight a surprise for my partner Sarah. The flight was fantastic, and the drop off point at OWhiti Bay was exactly what I had in mind when I first made the booking. The pilot helped us with our bags before departing and leaving us alone on the secluded beach, where the final part of my plan fell into place when Sarah accepted my proposal. Our wedding is planned for exactly a year to the day and we’ll be using helicopters yet again to make the occasion all the more special.

I would just like to say thanks for the ride this weekend - and for staying with us through all our postponements. The flight remained a mystery and surprise for Louise till we pulled into the driveway and she so enjoyed it. The look on her face made it all worthwhile. Our pilot, Richard was excellent (and the “trainee pilot banter” was great for a good laugh!) Thanks again!

Thank you so much for Saturday. The service you and your company uphold is amazing.  Service was great from our first email months ago to the end of the flight on Saturday.  I will be sure to send through some photos of our awesome day. Thank you again!!

A huge big thank you to both Lizzy’s amazing service and to our brilliant pilot. We both had so much fun on Saturday! Ash was so, so shocked! He thought that we were just going on a helicopter flight and was so shocked when we landed at the top of the field at Mudbrick! Such a once in a lifetime opportunity and I just wanted to say a big thank you!

Lizzy was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. I used Helicopter Me as part of a corporate thank you gift, and was unsure on a number of details to start with. Nothing was too much hassle for her, and she was able to ensure everything went off without a hitch. The ladies who received the gift had an absolute ball and enjoyed every minute of it. I will never use another company after receiving such fantastic service from Helicopter Me.

As promised, Lizzy sending you few photos taken by my husband Kumud while we had the beautiful ride with Mr Tom in Auckland Sky. It will be in my memory all through my life, as Tom you helped me fly in a helicopter for the first time in my life. You moved away my fear and you also made me view this beautiful city from the sky. It is an experience to cherish. Please be in touch both of you if you are visiting Mumbai any time in future. Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for all of your assistance when planning my wedding flight. Everyone is still talking about my arrival as I’m sure they will continue to do for many years to come! As one of them said to my partner when I was landing "how is anyone meant to top this?" The pilot was amazing especially since I was running very late to get to him so please pass on my thanks. Thank you both so much.

Thanks for your help organising my Dad’s trip on Sunday (especially such a great day of weather!!), he loved every bit of it – he said “The cab driver was a treasure, the helicopter ride was amazing, the food and service at Mudbrick were faultless and a real taste treat”.

It was the perfect conclusion to our wonderful trip Down Under...We are back in the USA and It's cold here right now...snowing every few days. We only wish we had more time to see more of Australia and New Zealand. Definitely need to plan a return trip. Again, thank you so much for your hospitality.

Our flight to Cable Bay was absolutely amazing! We had such a great time and I've told my partner I only want to travel by helicopter now haha. He was totally blown away and told me off for spoiling him. It was amazing and our pilot Kieran was great! He was really lovely! We were so lucky with the weather and yes landing in front of all those people was quite funny and we felt a bit silly; but we had a good laugh. Leaving was stunning because the sun was setting so it was all just perfect. The food & wines were amazing! I've been telling everybody about it! It was just an unforgettable day! I just want to say thank you for ALL your help, you've made this experience incredible right from the get go and you’re a total asset to this company!! Hopefully we'll talk again! I'd love to go back up someday.

The feedback I have received from those who were lucky enough to go along was extremely positive. They were blown away by the very VIP Helicopter, and said the trip and Pilot were absolutely fantastic. They especially loved that a special helicopter pad and path had been mown into the grass especially for their landing. Very VIP. The winery food I’m told was exquisite. They were given a special tour of the winery and welcomed wholeheartedly. I have liked your Facebook page and will let you know if there were any great photos.Thank you so much for all your help and patience.

“I recently had the opportunity to take to the skies with Helicopter Me for a 1/2hr flying lesson in their R22 chopper. After 10 mins of instruction from the lesson I was flying towards the Kaipara Harbour. 20 mins in we had combed over Silverdale and we're heading back to base for some hovering practice. This was a gift given to me for my birthday, and I reckon the memory of this experience will stay with me forever- and no doubt inspire me to go up in the Helicopter Me R22 the next time I'm back in NZ.

Wow what do I say.  Firstly a big THANK YOU to you and your team for making this very special day for me and Julia possible. We had the best day ever.  Not even the weather could ruin a perfect day that we had.  The whole day went perfect and ended even better with Julia saying YES.  Thank you to Heli Me and Pakiri Horse Rides for making this day easy for me to do my thing.  We have told so many people about our proposal and that is the best way to get your name out there I guess.We will keep in touch and tell you all about the wedding but have quite a few months of exciting planning to come first. I don't know how to thank you again but know we are both over the moon and were very impressed about how smoothly and professional your team were.
  • Jeff Bozich
  • Pakiri Horse Trek Engagement
Firstly thank you Lizzy for your contribution and making the booking not only a success but a memorable moment. It was very easy dealing with you and the response and additional suggestions were very quick and helpful. As for the weekend and Saturday in particular, im so happy we were able to make the flight and am very impressed with Richard, the pilot’s weather forecasting skills which ultimately lead to making the trip just in time to beat the wet weather. The flight was amazing and I’m still buzzing out about the experience. I would say the people at Cable Bay definitely made us feel very comfortable and we both enjoyed the food and wine. And yes she did say yes!
  • Zhan Matene

Thanks Lizzy and the team at Helicopter Me for the wonderful experience, from our first enquiry to the actual helicopter ride the team made us feel like not just like another fare but people who were welcome aboard.  The email and phone communication was flawless and I really can’t thank the team enough - we had a very overwhelmed and then excited 6 year old birthday boy on our hands! We look forward to flying with you again.

“We had an amazing evening! Ange had no idea what was going on. It wasn't until we rounded the corner of the shed out at Dairy flat that she even knew we were to be climbing into a helicopter.
Ange is not a big fan of flying and has never been in a helicopter, but it’s the take-off and landing in planes that she hates, so I took a punt that a helicopter would be less scary and prayed for a still night. There was a little bit of rain at take-off but when we got out to the coast it had completely cleared up and we had a very smooth flight over. Richard was fantastic and most importantly Ange loved it!!! Dinner at Cable Bay was amazing. The food was phenomenal, and the setting was equally good, we were seated right at the window, enjoying the most incredible views back over Auckland as we ate and drank. Awesome night!! We both loved it! It was a night Ange and I won’t forget!! Thanks for an epic experience!”

“What a lovely experience, we could have flown around for a lot longer. I kept wanting to say slow down to our pilot, Richard as we whizzed passed landmarks and places we thought we recognised. We even saw my brother's property, and our house looked amazing. The weather was perfect and all of our party (especially the birthday boys) enjoyed themselves so much. So THANK YOU for providing a wonderful service!”

“I was so engrossed with everything that I totally lost all account of time!  We saw so much of Auckland from the air.  Much more than I had expected.  The friendly pilot must be congratulated from making the flight so interesting with his comments and general knowledge of the area.  It was also special because my Grand daughter and great grandson shared the amazing experience with me.  Thank you Helicopter Me!”
  • Robert Shotton
“Everything was amazing!!”
  • Ethan Jones
“An amazing experience for all on so many levels – sharing it with my 90 year old Grandfather, and my 4 year old son, it is something we will cherish for a long time to come!  The pilot was informative and kind about all our questions (Young & old), and especially patient with my son.  Having originally thought he would be quite scared once the helicopter started up, the pilot made it fun and talked us through the whole experience which took all nervousness out for him – which is saying something!  He loves his Helicopter Me cap we got him and wears it with pride! The equipment used was amazing being able to take out the noise of the blades, but still being able to talk freely – again making the whole experience for the young & old incredibly enjoyable!  Can’t recommend the team at Helicopter Me more!”
  • Sarah Jones 
Thanks for organizing an unforgettable flight. The weather was nothing but spectacular and Sebastian was over the moon. Pretty sure the pilot got tired after a while from all the questions being asked.
The team was absolutely great.
Thanks heaps!
Will definitely recommend your service to my friends and family.

The flight was awesome!  Gemma is still amazed by the whole thing + it definitely got me a few brownie points! I was originally considering getting her some jewelry for the big milestone but the decision to go for an experience paid off massively!!! Thanks to Lizzy for all the help and effort that made the flight so memorable.  All the thought and ideas that went into the emails you sent me were very kind and much appreciated. I've given on the name of your company to a couple of people at work and will not hesitate recommending you in the future! Thanks for such a wicked day!
  • Scott Maylon
It was an absolutely awesome day, if only this could be my new mode of transport. Thank you for making the sun shine. Our pilot, Tim was great and definitely helped make the day so much fun.  A fantastic company which I will highly recommend to everyone! That's another tick on the bucket list.
  • Cat Harding 
We would just like to say that the time we spent with your ground team (and Tim our pilot), not to mention the helicopter flight, was a day we will always remember with great joy.  We were delighted with the hospitality and friendliness which you showed to us and this made us feel very special and we haven't stopped talking about it since. We would have no hesitation in referring your company "Helicopter Me" to anybody who is interested.

I would like to thank Helicopterme for our great experience.  From our first point of contact the service was professional and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.  On the day the team were happy to take photos of us and then off we went.  The pilot was very knowledgeable and there is so much to see in the air of Auckland and country that I would highly recommend taking the Coast tour.  This is a great gift idea for family and friends.  We will be doing it again.  Thanks!

It was a great way to celebrate my 60th birthday and the 2 mates & my son are still talking about it. Richard was a very entertaining & highly competent pilot. The professionalism demonstrated by your organisation from the safety briefing to the spotless storage facility, sets you apart from other operators. I would gladly recommend you to any prospective client.
  • Peter Rowe
We flew out to Waiheke Island with Helicopter Me and I proposed over lunch at Cable Bay before flying back. The flights were an incredible experience (even with average weather) and our pilot was extremely friendly. Helicopter Me were very easy to deal with and managed to keep everything a surprise until the last minute. Thanks for an amazing day!
  • Ed Bulog
  • Sydney, Australia
My wife and I, our daughter and son and their partners, had an unforgettable experience with Helicopter Me celebrating my 65th birthday. We organised a trip over to the West Coast and eventually were dropped off on Waiheke for dinner. In all respects Helicopter Me came up trumps. Due to timing issues and difficulties getting a dinner booking we had a number of attempts to get it sorted but Lizzy was extremely helpful all the way.  They had champagne ready for us on arrival and all the crew were very friendly and the pilot was great at putting the nervous ones at ease - the arrival at the airport was the first my family knew about the flights. The flight was exhilarating with a great commentary provided throughout and is an experience that will never be forgotten. Thanks Helicopter Me for a great start to our celebrations.

Charmaine had never been treated to a scenic flight of any kind, so I knew this would take her way out of her comfort zone. All plans had to sealed in secret until we reached Auckland in New Zealand. After many emails and some outstanding coordination and organisation by Lizzy Thoresen at Helicopter Me, we settled on a day and time for the event. Lizzy had to satisfy our tight time frame as well as that of other passengers, and she did this with incredible professionalism. Lizzy provided me with transport timetables and cost of fares to and from Albany.   She met us at the bus stop and after the flight took us back to the bus terminus. Richard, the pilot was extremely friendly and surrendered his knowledge of New Zealand at all stages of the flight. Overall this was the most memorable helicopter flight I have ever had. Oh! And Charmaine has not stopped telling of our wonderful experience.

Would (and have) recommended the experience to anyone.... the crew at Helicopter Me are a friendly and professional bunch. The flight out to the Barrier was stunning and they know some magic fishing spots. Memorable day that went well beyond what I expected.
  • Eric Skilling
What an amazing experience flying with Helicopter Me, simple words cannot describe them. I arranged this surprise trip for my wife’s birthday and we were stuck in the traffic so called them up and they happily waited for us to arrive as we were the last trip for the day. Very welcoming team, very friendly pilot and what an experience …. tooooo good to be true. A life time experience that will remain with us for lifelong. My wife felt very special only because of the welcoming team. Helicopter Me, Thanks for adding these cherished endless memories to our lives. Our kids will also remember this forever.”
  • Vins Grover
 
I hired Helicopter Me to fly my partner and I to Waiheke last December, and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Stuart and the team were extremely helpful throughout the booking process, and on the day of the flight. They even agreed to help play along with my story in order to keep the true purpose of the flight a surprise for my partner Sarah. The flight was fantastic, and the drop off point at OWhiti Bay was exactly what I had in mind when I first made the booking. The pilot helped us with our bags before departing and leaving us alone on the secluded beach, where the final part of my plan fell into place when Sarah accepted my proposal. Our wedding is planned for exactly a year to the day and we’ll be using helicopters yet again to make the occasion all the more special.
  • Richard Keogh
 
We had taken a friend for a surprise helicopter ride with “Helicopter Me” – the service we received over the phone was outstanding with detailed information of the packages and recommendations.  The helicopter ride was just beautiful and our pilot who took us made the experience one to remember with his humour and knowledge of the area we travelled.  I would recommend Helicopter Me if you are looking to do something special (or just want an experience). The extra service by the lovely ladies at reception was a bonus.”
  • Ang Mizziebo
 
We have done the Waiheke Vineyard trip twice now and consider it a perfect destination for that special day out, including lunch. The flight down the Bays, over Rangitoto and around the top of Waiheke is simply glorious! Highly recommended!

I just want to say how much we all enjoyed our trip in one of your helicopters to Great Barrier. The pilot was friendly with a great sense of humour spinning some funny jokes. We look forward to our next trip although I must say the next trip must be in one of your bigger, faster machines. Take care and hope to see you all again In the near future
