helicopter into the Landsborough!

Hello!
What helicopter operator do you recomend flying in to the Landsborough area?
Am gonna be based in QT.
Does the rates vary between operators, or is it pretty much the same.
What is a normal fare for 4 guys, depending on how far in you fly that is.
Flew in with Greenstone Helicopters last year and was really well taken care of.
As i have printed before, if anyone is keen to go to the northern hemisphere and check out the hunting here, let me know.
Gonna go out and pusch some snow around, had a real dump last night.
Perfect for tracking  Wink Smiley

+1 for above
https://www.haastheli.co.nz/contact-us - drop them a line and they will give you a price for your intended location.

Might take you up on the northern hemisphere hunting hookup when I move back northward next year!  Smiley

The top of the Landsbugger is probably closer to Glentanner where Heliline fly from or up the road you have Heliworks flying out of the Mt Cook strip.
The top of the river up around Mt Burns is the most interesting bit.

Totally agree with above-if flying into upper Landsborough, flying in from Glentanner would be far closer and quicker -From Glentanner its straight up Bush Stream-Across the top of the Dobson and Hopkins and into say the mid Landsborough is only 17 miles from the Glentanner helipad-20 minutes at most.

Isnít the upper Landsborough a wilderness area? Ie the only permitted landing in there is for those successful in the tahr ballots? Or is that what youíve got?

For the open landing areas in the lower Landsborough, flying from the old homestead would still be the best bet Iíd have thought.

Iíve done both in the distant past, doing some survey work. The main concern flying from the east side was getting out if weather was a bit off, seemed better chance of getting in from the West  than over the Divide?

Your right as far as weather goes-if its a howling westerly at Glentanner-it will be an ugly ride-and maybe not possible,however if its pissing rain on the coast a Haast based aircraft would get up the Haast and Landsborough valley in most cases.

Woops, I may have put those fellas on a false scent. I forgot all about the Wilderness area.
However you can always walk in via Broderick or Elcho or Karangarua or for the really keen and slightly suicidal there is always the Scissors route.

We're just back from a big trip climbing up from Mt Cook Village, over Mt Burns on the main divide to the very head of the Landsborough, and then followed it hunting all the way down to the sea.
Above Kea Flat is wilderness area - so no flying/landing outside the tahr ballots (if you're lucky enough to win one).
Episode goes to air 8.30pm Jan 31st, on TVNZs Duke channel, if you wanna see the Landsborough from the very top to bottom! Cheesy
