SURROUNDED BY THE SPECTACULAR SOUTHERN ALPS, MOUNTAIN FLYING IS OUR SPECIALTY.
Wanaka Helicopters is a world-renown helicopter flight training school situated in Wanaka, offering an advanced standard of flight training in an environment that many other countries and flight schools cannot provide or compete with.
Family owned and operated since 1992, we are New Zealand’s largest and most experienced helicopter flight school. Flight training, and associated activities such as examining and flight testing is one of our main activities, but we also operate a commercial arm of the business performing commercial and tourism operations.
New Zealand's most experienced flight training school.
One of the reasons Wanaka Helicopters pilot flight training is so advanced is because all instructors are highly skilled, experienced, operational pilots.
CEO and Chief Flight Instructor Simon Spencer-Bower is the country’s most experienced helicopter flight instructor, with over 22,000 hours flight time. His team of instructors comprises a mix of eight B and C-category instructors, all of whom fly commercial operations in addition to flight instructing.
