Garden City Helicopters company profile
Garden City Helicopters was established in New Zealand by John Currie in 1983 at New Brighton Beach, East of Christchurch City. The main functions of the company at that time were as a coastal helicopter rescue service and operator of scenic flights around Banks Peninsula and Christchurch city. The expansion of tourism opportunities in Christchurch increased the demand for scenic flights and the formalisation of a dedicated and expanded air rescue operation resulted in a relocation to expanded base facilities adjacent to Christchurch International Airport.
Today, Garden City Helicopters is widely respected as one of New Zealand's premier helicopter operators, servicing all aspects of tourism and charter flights, air ambulance and rescue operations and commercial flying services as well as further expansion into fixed-wing aircraft charter operations.
As they continue to expand the operation within New Zealand as well as regions of the South Pacific, Garden City Helicopters have introduced a group brand - GCH Aviation - in order to present a professional, cohesive and quality focused service to their customers.
