Passenger weight

Individual passenger weight is critical for a helicopter. The average passenger weight for a flight must be 90kg or less. Passengers over 100kg may be required to pay for an additional comfort seat. Please let us know the passenger weights when making a booking and do not hesitate to get in touch if you are unsure about weight restrictions.

Weight restrictions apply to all flights.
The Eurocopter Squirrel has a dual front seat; if used, the two passengers occupying these seats must have a combined weight of 140 kgs maximum on flights with 6 passengers.


All flights are weather dependent.
In the event that the weather is unsuitable on the day of your scheduled booking, your flight will be cancelled and rescheduled at no additional cost to you. When booking please provide us with suitable contact information so we can get hold of you on the day. We suggest you call us on the morning of your flight if you have any doubt about the weather.

Cancellation and Refunds

Heletranz reserves the right to postpone/cancel any trips due to adverse weather conditions.

The Passenger acknowledges that Heletranz Ltd may need to cancel or reschedule flights or services due to landing restrictions, unsuitable weather conditions, technical problems, operational reasons, or any event beyond Heletranz’s reasonable control.

Heletranz will not be liable for any consequential losses or additional costs incurred as a result of cancellation. Some supplier’s products and services associated with our packages are non-refundable or incur separate fees.

If client postpones trips within 72 hours, Heletranz will endeavour to re-schedule arrangements (supplier amendment fees may be charged, if applicable).

A cancellation fee of 100% applies if the client cancels within 24 hours of flight departure.

A cancellation fee of 50% applies if the client cancels between 24 and 72 hours of flight departure.

A cancellation fee of 25% applies if the client cancels between one month (31 days) and 72 hours of flight departure.

Flights are fully refundable in the event that Heletranz cancels the service, however, third-party charges may still apply.

Heletranz shared experience flights are considered close contact and therefore as per government guidelines we are required by law to check passenger vaccination status under certain levels of the COVID-19 Protection Framework. To enable us to continue to work seamlessly with our activity partners, Heletranz has made the decision to carry only fully vaccinated passengers on shared experience flights from December 3, 2021. Masks will continue to be required on all flights and transfers.

We are committed to providing a safe operation for our passengers and staff as New Zealand gets moving under the new “traffic light” system and in accordance with government requirements all of our staff are fully vaccinated. 

All passengers aged over 12 years and 3 months are required to present their vaccine certificates for scanning at time of pickup and/or at check in.  Failure to do so will prevent you from travelling in our aircraft.  Passengers may also need to present their vaccination certificates to our activity partners. Where a passenger is not able to show a valid vaccination certificate their booking will be cancelled immediately, and in adherence with our 24 hour cancellation policy, they will not be eligible for a refund. 

 If passengers are unvaccinated, they may charter an aircraft exclusively as one group or “bubble” provided they are able to produce proof of a negative test taken within 72 hours of departure.  However, they may not be able to access partner activities. We look forward to the business summer period and welcome you to reach out to us if you have any questions.
