Helicopter Rides Tauranga

Adventure Helicopters are Tauranga and Mount Maunganui’s helicopter adventure & aerial fun in the Bay specialists.

We not only teach aspiring helicopter pilots how to fly, do flight testing, and commercial work, we also take our scenic flight guests on helicopter rides and excursions to extra-special places to enjoy your choice of exclusive activities with our partners.


We also offer private charters and scenic flights in our Bell 206 Jet Ranger and twin-engine Bell 427 (the big flying gunmetal grey shark).


Rated statistically as the safest single-engine aircraft in the world, our Jet Ranger can seat 4 passengers in smooth comfort. The 427 is twin-engine, airconditioned and more than a little luxurious. Just ask Chris Luxon ex-chief of Air New Zealand who came for a buzz with us not long ago.
