Helicopter Type
Waiheke Airfield is located centrally on the island, and we can fly in and out anytime during daylight hours. 

It is perfect if your destination does not have a helipad. The vineyards on Waiheke can run out of availability especially on weekends in summer as their consents allow only a certain number of helicopter landings per month, but we can always use the airfield so it can be a good way of making sure we can get you to Waiheke.

It is also within walking distance of Thomas' Bach, also know as The Batch, where you can enjoy delicious wine and casual dining.

Car rental companies will usually be happy to arrange to drop off a rental vehicle for you here, or otherwise we can organise a driver to meet you when your helicopter lands to take you onwards to your destination.

Approx flight time: 10 minutes
