Meet our Crew

Over The Top’s flying experience in the South Island dates back to 1976. This span of over forty years has given our crew an intimate knowledge of the special places and unique people within the region as well as an ingrained respect for the local weather and mountainous terrain.

Over The Top's Pilots and Crew are not only experts in their field, they are trained as Ambassadors of New Zealand to ensure you receive an excursion with the best of hospitality and local commentary.
