The Crew at Over The Top

Our crew are not only helicopter pilots with extensive experience, but trained tour guides who will make your scenic flight experience fascinating and unforgettable. With over 40 years of experience in flying, our crew’s knowledge on the region’s people, places, weather and terrain is second to none. We operate some of the newest, safest and most comfortable helicopters in New Zealand, with leather seats, plush carpet and high-end noise cancelling headphones. Join us and our friendly crew on our distinctive black Airbus, Eurocopter EC130 or Squirrel AS350.
