PHL Locations

PHL provides agricultural, commercial and tourism helicopter services from our New Plymouth (Taranaki), Maxwell (South Taranaki), Piopio (South Waikato) and Hokitika bases.

At PHL, we provide agricultural and commercial helicopter services from all of our bases. We also offer heli-tours from our New Plymouth (Taranaki) and Hokitika bases.  

New Plymouth (Taranaki)

Our New Plymouth base is the company Head Office. Here we have our reception, offices, and aircraft hangar. 

Taranaki is the energy capital of New Zealand and we have been providing safe and reliable helicopter support for the oil and gas sector for many years in this region.

We operate an Airbus AS350 B2 and an Airbus AS350 BA flown by highly qualified and experienced pilots servicing the Taranaki, Whanganui and Manawatū regions.

Along with our agricultural and commercial work, we also run heli-tours for local and international tourists alike. We can take you up and down the coast to view some of the country's most remote spots of natural beauty. And of course, we can also take you up, over and around our biggest gem, Taranaki Maunga.
