Awesome trip

Flying back from the end of the Heaphy with Mit was the best decision of the whole trip. Great flight, great chat and we would do it again tomorrow! And the next day :)

Mit picked us up from Karamea and dropped us at the start of the track. Such great flight, service was brilliant. His knowledge of the area was extensive. Couldn't recommend this company enough!

Thanks so much to Mit for flying us from Karamea to Nelson - we were booked with another operator, but they had a breakdown. So Mit to the rescue! Great flight- fantastic views and a hard case commentary. Highly recommend

Mit picked us up from Nelson airport & flew us into Brown Hut, the start of the Heaphy Track. He was a very entertaining pilot & we thoroughy enjoyed our half hour flight. However,although we had booked several months in advance, Mit hadnt told us that we would require transport from the end of the track to Karamea-where he would... More

Our pilot, Mit, was the epitome of a Kiwi tour operator: welcoming, enthusiastic (about flying and about Golden Bay), considerate, highly informative about local history and geographical highlights, prepared to embellish local folk-lore with tongue-in-cheek humour and quick to engage in cheerful badinage. Our advice: take the 1-hour trip.

Mitt picked our family up from New Plymouth Airport and had us on the Heaphy track at Browns hut in just over an hour. Again at Karamea he picked us up and got us back home so quickly. This saved us additional days and expense in travel. It made doing the track easy for us over a long weekend. Mitt... More

This was the most convenient transfer which saved us a day travel by road. Great to be able to land at Browns Hut. Mit did more than just fly us, really like-able guy and able to give a great description of the geography, history and pointing out the track locations as we flew over them. Went out of his way...
