Experience of a lifetime!

My 88 year old mum has always wanted to go in a helicopter, and so I arranged this as a surprise for her. The first trip had to be postponed due to high winds, but we were able to re-book for a couple of days later. She'd mentioned she'd always wanted to be up front with the pilot, so I emailed and asked if it would be possible. They were so obliging, and in the end Mum and I had the ride to ourselves, with mum up front. It was fabulous, we even got to drive through a rainbow!! The Team at Inflite/Heletranz were very professional and friendly, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this experience (volcanoes and Beaches)

Not worth it and I didn’t get view of sky tower and harbour bridge from my side.
