Conservation Air Support

We are an approved provider of aerial services for DoC (Department of Conservation) flying over 200 hours a year carrying out various tasks from precision lifting to ablution maintenance.

 

Precision Helicopters have been a service provider to DOC (Department of Conservation) for 15 years. As an approved helicopter operator, we fly over 200 hours a year carrying out various tasks such as weed control, precision lifting of building materials and general supplies, personnel transportation, support for track building and ablution maintenance.

We are experienced in working in close proximity to archaeological sites, protected bird habitats and environmentally and culturally sensitive areas. At all times, we operate with care and avoid encroaching on nearby significant sites and species.

We understand the importance of looking after our native forest and ecology and take steps to minimise our noise and environmental impact. As a company, we are always innovating and are constantly improving our equipment and procedures to ensure a quality job.

We cherish this work and it is an honour to be an integral part of the transportation of goods and services in our National parks and conservation land.

DOC Projects We've Worked On

  • White Cliffs Walkway – on Ngāti Tama land
  • Ahukawakawa Swamp Track fragile site
  • Goat culling – where populations are damaging
  • Spot spraying – noxious and invasive plants
  • Personnel transport – as DOC staff taxi
  • Hut maintenance – wood/coal delivery

We have also engaged with DOC for the building of many other walkways, tracks and structures critical to the nationwide DOC network of conservation measures and outdoor experiences. Locations have included extensive aerial missions throughout the West Coast of New Zealand's North and South Islands, often accessing extremely difficult locations.
