Attention Hunters! Here are all the details for your upcoming heli-hunting trip with Heli-Hire Limited.


Be ready with your gear beside the pad, loose items secured, hats off, ready to go.
If you are in the hills waiting for a pick-up, if we are not there within half an hour of dark, we aren’t coming. We will be in ASAP the next day, but you need to be packed and ready to go right up to that time.

Do NOT decide “Oh they aren’t coming today” and go off hunting, you need to wait.

Full Carcasses

We will not fly out full carcasses! You need to bone out your meat or quarter it up, legs are ok.


Please ensure your rifle bolt is removed and magazine is removed or empty before flight.
