This was a brilliant flight. The weather was not allowing the long flight but it was great to do a snow landing and see mount Cook from this far up. Amazing trip with our 6 month old daughter. She needed ear protection though.

Hi Bjoern,
Thanks for the great feedback on your scenic helicopter flight with us. Unfortunately, as you mentioned, sometimes the weather does restrict the locations that we are able to access but thankfully, as often happens, we were able to change your flight time and still give you an awesome alpine experience. The snow at this time of year is spectacular and we are glad to hear your young one enjoyed the trip too. Our team are great at accommodating young children, we apologies that your daughter didn’t receive the ear protection.
Thanks again – The Team at The Helicopter Line - Mount Cook.

The views from the helicopter were phenomenal! We took a 30 minutes ride which was ample time and we were able to get out on the mountain and enjoy the views. Our pilot Jim was very informative of the mountains. The whole experience was fantastic and highly worth going.

Hi There,
Thanks for your fantastic review of our 35 minute Alpine Explorer flight. The snow landing sites for this flight are great at this time of year with some fresh snow arriving as we edge into the winter months.
We thank you for your kind comments about our pilot Jim. He is very experienced at flying in the area and knows the Southern Alps really well. We will be sure to pass your thanks on to him.
Thanks again – The Team at The Helicopter Line - Mount Cook.
