Heliventures offer a full range of agricultural and commercial services, from lifting to commercial transport.
At Heliventures we pride ourselves in being one of the first operators in NZ to become AirCare accredited. This accreditation highlights Heliventures commitment to high safety standards, professionalism and efficiency in all aspects of our helicopter operation.Heliventures operate one Airbus AS350 B2 Squirrel and one MD-520N Notar helicopter from their base at the Oamaru Airport and three MD-520N Notars from their base at the Invercargill Airport.
The MD-520N Notar is renowned for its maneuverability, versatility and the fact that it has no tail rotor makes it 50 percent quieter than other machines in its class. The B2 Squirrel is perfect for large agricultural operations and heavy lifting as it lifts approximately 1,000kgs. Our helicopters are all finished with a leather interior and the Notar helicopters seat four passengers, while the B2 Squirrel seats 6 passengers.
