The company was formed in the mid-eighties. The main activity at that time was live deer capture and recovery. Over the years AHNZL has diversified into all types of commercial work evolving into the Wairarapa’s Leading Commercial Helicopter Operator. The company has developed and maintained an excellent working relationship with all the main utilities providers and the rural community in the Wairarapa region. We have no concerns in our suitability to undertake any aerial operation; “our reputation is your assurance” when considering us for service.
In 2006 we were one of 4 operators nationwide invited by the Civil Aviation Authority & Video NZ to become involved in producing a DVD production called Safety Around Helicopters. Our company is proud to be considered by the Civil Aviation Authority as an operation worthy to set an example for others. AHNZL has a NIL accident history.
