Proposal Helicopter Flights

Make the moment memorable!

Imagine bending the knee in a winter wonderland or on a mountain top with the stunning Lake Wanaka as your backdrop. When you plan a helicopter wedding proposal you create a private and exclusive moment for the two of you.

At Aspiring Helicopters we will work with you in secrecy while you plan the perfect “Will You” moment. A private helicopter flight will whisk you both away to your chosen proposal location. Your Wanaka proposal flight will offer a guaranteed private experience and a complimentary bottle of New Zealand bubbles. Our proposal flights include 10 minutes at your chosen landing location to ‘pop the question’. If you want more time, just ask our friendly team about other options.

Your proposal flight will depart from our hangar at a time suitable to you (subject to availability).

Suggested Wanaka Proposal Locations:

Coromandel Peak – $705 – 20min

Take a short scenic flight above Glendhu Bay to land at that iconic Wanaka view point on Coromandel Peak (Mt Roy) with stunning views across Lake Wanaka and its surrounding mountains

Daniels Spur – $705 – 20 min 

Take a short scenic flight over the crystal clear waters of Lake Wanaka to land on the Buchanan Mountain range with spectacular views back across the lake towards Wanaka township.

Fog Peak – $1005 – 25 min 

Take a stunning scenic flight above the picturesque Matukituki Valley to the border of the Mt Aspiring National Park. Land high on Fog Peak with snow or patches of snow most of the year and stunning views of Mt Aspiring and the Southern Alps.

Tyndall Glacier – $1305 – 35 mins 

Fly over rugged peaks and deep glacial carved valleys into the deep wilderness, with snow capped peaks as far as the eye can see. Land high on the Tyndall Glacier with a stunning backdrop boasting classic glacial features, a river of white with blue ice, deep crevasses and intricate formations.

All of the Wanaka wedding locations featured on our website are also perfect for a proposal. Choose from a snowy glacier, an alpine cliff top or that iconic Lake Wanaka view from Mt Roy. Our staff can recommend the perfect heli proposal package for you. Get in touch with us to enquire.
