Perfect opportunity for our mother to strike off her top bucket list item for her 80th birthday with a helicopter ride over the lovely Hawke's Bay and over her home of 47 years. The team were great fun which made for a memorable experience. Pilot Matt made everyone feel at ease. Highly recommend these guys.

My 4 year old was lucky enough to go with his grandparents on a sight seeing flight with Bay Heliwork. He came home beaming from ear to ear. They were fantastic and even took some photos for me. A great experience that will be the talk of kindy tomorrow. Thanks very much Bay Heliwork.

Bay Heliwork was simply amazing, I wanted to do something different and exciting for my partner's 40th birthday and came up with a plan for a helicopter ride followed by wine tasting and dinner. There was a bit of decision making on my part and Bay Heliwork were incredibly helpful even on unrelated matters like transport if not by helicopter... More
