Mountain Training - NZ

Postby Rocket Surgeon » Sat May 1 2021, 00:40

I'm looking for the best quality mountain training/course in NZ.

I've heard good things about Wanaka Helicopters in the past, but wondered if there were other respected courses our there.

Any information (good or bad) would be be much appreciated.

Thanks

I’ve done a fair amount of research on this and spoken to the man himself at Wanaka. It’s the only outfit in the Southern Hemisphere I’d consider.

I did mine with Wanaka Helicopters, learnt a heap and couldn't recommend them enough. Your only a minute from the mountains so your straight into it.

I did my squirrel rating there some years ago. Pinnacle landing at 5000' in the snow was outstanding. Very high quality of training with the team, you'd be very hard pressed to find better.
