Additional Information

Safety First
Your safety is our top priority. Our helicopters are meticulously maintained, and our pilots undergo rigorous training to ensure a safe flight. Please listen carefully and follow your pilots' instructions at all times so you can sit back & enjoy the experience. Please inform us of any specific requirements or concerns, and we will do our best to accommodate them.

Weather Conditions
Being a highly weather dependent activity, we reserve the right to change flights, routes and landings subject to weather conditions at the pilot’s discretion. Flight durations are approximate. Wind, rain and cloud could all affect your flight. We will endeavor to give you as much notice as possible but the weather here changes extremely fast and if we are unable to fly you will be refunded. Please be kind to our team - we can't control the weather and safety is our priority.

Minimum Numbers
We require a minimum of 4 pax for a flight to depart. Smaller and solo bookings are welcomed, and we will pair you up with another small group. In the event we do not have numbers you will be offered a reschedule or refunded. Depending on machine availability on the day you may also have the option to pay for a third seat to be able to depart at your booked time.

Cancellation policy

Full refund if cancelled up to 24 hours before activity starts.

Good weather is required for this experience. If we need to cancel due to poor weather, you'll be offered a different date or a full refund.

There is a minimum number of travellers for this experience. If the minimum isn't met and we need to cancel, we will offer a different date/experience or a full refund.

Terms

Comfort Seats Our helicopter seats are 40cm wide. If you think you are wider than this, we highly recommend booking a comfort seat next to you. All customers are welcomed to reserve the comfort seat next to them for extra space. Please Do Not Bring There is not a lot of space in the helicopters. Selfie sticks, extendable go pro handles and all bags are best left behind, or with office staff for safe keeping. What You Should Bring We recommend a jacket, sunglasses, solid shoes and your camera or phone for photos. The helicopter is a comfortable temperature, and the snow landing sites varies. In the winter the temperature is generally about 5° colder than town and in the peak of summer it is often warmer than Franz Josef township. We will be able to offer advice at check in on the day's current conditions.
