Founded by Sir Tim Wallis in the early 1960’s, the company first began by using helicopters when Tim pioneered their use to economically harvest deer from the mountains of New Zealand. As Tim’s knowledge and experience grew, the company followed suit. In the 1980’s the company diversified by venturing into the tourism industry.
Alpine Helicopters has grown to incorporate a modern fleet of helicopters with highly trained pilots specialising in scenic adventures, commercial, agriculture, and heli-skiing. Alpine Helicopters has moved a long way since its early years, but remains a family owned and operated company committed to quality and service.
Alpine Helicopters is a part of The Alpine Group, owned by the Wallis family. The Alpine Group has interests across Aviation, Tourism, Processing and Export.
