Helicopters in Wairoa

Hughes 500 D


Gisborne Helicopters uses state-of-the-art tracking devices on all our aircraft. At any time we can view the exact location of our helicopters as well as the altitude and velocity, simply by using our online tracking tools. Our Bell 407 and Hughes 500 D uses Tracplus whereas all the other fleet helicopters use a locally developed system called Spidertracks. So no matter where you are flying you can rest assured that we know exactly where you are - even if you are flying to very remote locations.
