From film work, construction, or hunting and fishing, to power lines and aerial survey, HNZ has the experience and capability.
HNZ have the capacity and the experience to carry out a diverse range of helicopter charter operations. We have had extensive experience throughout New Zealand undertaking television filming, advertising, and documentary and feature film making, including work on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. We can also offer a range of other services such as helicopter transfers to remote lodges, hunting and fishing trips, aerial survey work and cargo carriage. Below is a summary of HNZ's helicopter charter experience.
HNZ has assisted with numerous construction projects throughout the country, with work including high voltage transmission line construction, remote building and tower foundation repair.
Our strength is that we have experience across all facets of construction, in particular the building industry and placement of buildings in remote locations, for example, DOC huts into Abel Tasman and holiday homes to the Marlborough Sounds.
