    Heli operators for drop offs from christchurch

    Hi guys Im after a bit of info on who the chopper operators are in and around the canterbury area

    Iv done a bit of tahr hunting in the past when I was studying at lincoln uni, but now living back home in the top of the north island I miss having that at my doorstep

    I also want to take my father for a tahr hunt before he gets too old to do that sort of thing.

    are there any closeish to christchurch?

    who are the good ones?

    is it best to get a ride closer to where I want to be? to minimise flying time?

    any help would be greatly appreciated
    cheers guys

    Nope. Damaged the squirrel last season after it sunk on the heli ski landing pad and wrecked the tail rotor.
