We also fly to Fiordland, Mt Cook, the Glaciers, the penguin and albatross colonies of Otago's east coast and to New Line Cinemas, Lord of the Rings movies location sites in the southern part of the south Island of New Zealand.
M18428 is a family business run by Janet and Robert Rutherford. Robert grew up in the area and knows it very well. His ancestors arrived here from Scotland in the 1860s to mine for gold. We started M18428 in 1992, so we have had many years of safe operation. We are uniquely placed to share our knowledge and love of the area with our guests. We have the flexibility to fit in with your requirements so long as safety is not compromised.
We specialise in providing the highest standard of personal, friendly service to clients who travel in groups of no more than seven per aircraft. The pilots have a love of this area and are skilled at flying in the mountains. All our aircraft are fitted with individual head sets so you are able to hear the pilot's informative commentary.
