This Helicopter Me Experience departs from our City Heliport at Mechanics Bay. Other departure locations such as Auckland Airport and North Shore Airfield are also available, prices vary.
When you make your enquiry, please let us know how many people the flight is for. This particular package is generally quoted for a couple, but our luxury Eurocopters can seat up to six adults.
Unlike large airliner aircraft individual passenger weight is critical for a helicopter. The average passenger weight for a full flight must generally be 85kg or less. Passengers over 100kg may be required to pay for an additional seat. Depending on the helicopter type there is also a maximum single seat weight. Please let us know the passenger weights when making a booking. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you are unsure about weight restrictions.
The amount of luggage that can be carried is highly dependent on the number of passengers booked and the type of helicopter. In general, each passenger can bring a small carry on bag, and in our large Eurocopters there is limited capacity for suitcases and larger bags as well, please enquire for details.
In the event that the weather is unsuitable on the day then your Experience will be cancelled and rescheduled at no cost to you. When booking please provide us with suitable contact information so we can get hold of you on the day in the event of a cancellation. We suggest you call on the morning of your experience if you have any doubt about the weather suitability.
