A little about us

We’ve been around since 1996 and have trained
hundreds of helicopter pilots from acorss New Zealand
and around the world..

North Shore Helicopter Training

North Shore Helicopter Training established in 1996, has a proud history of training literally hundreds of both private, commercial and instructional pilots from all walks of life from our base at North Shore Airfield.

The intention has always been to train pilots in a fun, informative and innovative manner with safety being the number one priority.

Our students come from completely varying backgrounds and cultures but have a common goal of achieving their dreams and learning how to fly these great machines.

Recently to ensure we are at the forefront of training great pilots, we gained New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) registration to offer diplomas to levels 5 & 6, plus we are fully certified as a Part 141 Training Organisation by the Civil Aviation Authority.

We are extremely proud of our history…. and very excited about our future!

Orbit Tours & Charters

In partnership with other like minded individuals, Orbit Helicopters is a unique boutique service which caters to a distinctly personal experience.

At Orbit Helicopters we believe there are parts of New Zealand that will quite literally leave you breathless – natural beauty so amazing and locations so remote that few have gone there. Orbit Helicopters would like you to be a part of this experience.

We provide individually tailored flight tours to some of the most picturesque locations in New Zealand. Our personal and intimate service can cater to both individual and group demands.

Our pilots have thousands of hours of flying experience and hold a high regard for safety and a fine attention to detail. They are selected for their passion, enthusiasm and their desire to share what they believe to be the most beautiful place on earth.

We look forward to taking you on more than a journey….an experience of a lifetime!
