Upgrades & CUSTOMISATION

Transform your helicopter to suit your requirements

Transform your helicopter to suit your requirements

Our helicopter projects team specialises in both small and large scale helicopter upgrades and reconfiguration projects. We offer a range of helicopter customisation services, from avionics refits and interior refurbishments through to full role reconfiguration and transformations to suit your specific mission requirements.

Looking for something specific? We can globally source an aircraft for you, organise the freight and logistics to our hangar based in New Zealand, and customise the aircraft to suit your needs before delivering it to you, ready to fly.
