This iconic helidive combines a scenic helicopter flight over the cityscape of Ōtautahi Christchurch, followed by a skydive out of the helicopter over the Sumner Beach coastline. Board a BK117 at the GCH - Garden City Helicopters helipad, New Zealand’s most experienced and safest private aviation companies, for a private helicopter flight over our city, the Port Hills, and see the East Coastline open up all the way to the Banks Peninsula; with the Southern Alps standing tall in the background.

Are you ready? The door slides open, you take a breath and you dive into Otautahi’s iconic Sumner Beach with views stretching over Banks Peninsula, as far as Akaroa.

The exit out of a helicopter is a unique experience! Land on Sumner beach; your toes in the sand and your head in the clouds.
