PHL Team - Tammy Newton

"At PHL you're in good hands. Both Matt and I are from flying stock and we've been involved in aviation from the day we were born. It's in our blood, we live and breathe aviation, and we love everything about it.”

Tammy Newton Co-Owner & Director – Hokitika Base

Alongside husband Matt, Tammy Newton is also from an aviation family, with her father being a helicopter pilot in the RFNZAF then later a deer recovery pilot at Mt Hutt Station.

Tammy runs the front office and handles customer service at the Hokitika Gorge base with daughter Lilly Newton. Although Tammy is co-owner and director of PHL, her background is in the hospitality industry as a chef, which means, Tammy often is whipping up yummy treats for the staff and PHL's guests including international stars such as Tom Cruise and his family, who are good friends of the Newtons.
