Action Helicopter Flights in New Zealand

Scenic Flights

Many people say we're biased when it comes to the South Island of New Zealand - and they're right, we are 100% Kiwi. This is the most beautiful part of the world, and we're very keen to show you why. Nelson Lakes, Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks are extremely close and among our favourites.

Trophy Fishing Tours

At Action Helicopters we are able to transport you to some of New Zealand's premier trout fishing locations. We often team up with professional fishing guide Zane as his comprehensive knowledge of the regions best kept "secret" fishing spots is quite quickly becoming legendary.

Hunting Safaris

Our hunting tours cater for both the expert and the beginner. We often forget how lucky we are to be such a short flying distance from lands so rich in wildlife. Thar, Chamois, and Red Deer are just a few that can be hunted everywhere from Fiordland to Nelson. We're also happy to lend a hand with anything else you may require; from guides, escorts and accommodation, through to firearm licences and permits.

Caving Expeditions

Right on our doorstep are some of the world's most famous caving systems. The Bulmer Cave and Nettle Bed system have both gained the respect and admiration of cavers from all over the world. While we don't share your passion for going underground we can get you there as quickly and safely as possible.

Eco Tours

Luckily New Zealand still has large pockets where man has had little, if any impact. Visitors are always surprised by just how close (by helicopter) some of these pristine areas are. Over the years, our love for this country has shown us many naturally beautiful locations and we pride ourselves on the low-impact we have when visiting. After all, it is our job to protect and preserve them for future generations.  

Adventure Sports - Skiing, Boarding & Biking

We don't know where you'd find a better 'natural' playground than our South Island of New Zealand. We are experienced in providing transport for all manner of action and adrenalin addicted sports people. So give us a call to discuss what you've got planned, who knows our local knowledge may even give you some new, alternative options. 

Commercial - Industrial 

Over the last 25 years our skills and expertise have been called on to fly a wide variety of goods and products into remote locations throughout the South Island of New Zealand. For more information about our industrial projects visit our commercial helicopter flights page.

What our clients say about Action Flights

Action Helicopters are the real McCoy. They know where to go and how to get you home safely. We’ve always had great flying experiences over many years and absolutely recommend Action Helicopters. I also consider Action Helicopters the ‘go-to’ company for anyone wanting to access the magic of Kahurangi National Park.

Strike Adventure Fly Fishing - Nelson, New Zealand
Syd has an extensive knowledge of the caving locations in the North West Nelson mountains and we use Action Helicopters on our alpine caving expeditions into the remote alpine caving areas of the Kahurangi National Park. Action Helicopters are very safety conscious and have proven themselves to be an extremely efficient and helpful operator over the last 30 years. I have no hesitation in recommending Syd and Action Helicopters.
