west coast owned & operated since 1989...

In June 1989, Anderson Helicopters was established to take up the opportunity to provide Agricultural and Air Transport services that were no longer being offered by Kevin's previous employer in the Westland Area.

  Fortunately, as Kevin had been Pilot / Manager for the previous operator since it set up its base on the West Coast, he attracted a number of former clients to help establish his new business.

Kevin's previous flying experience had also taught him the necessity for having excellent ground backup support. Which is why Sandra Anderson became an integral part of the new business.  Fletcher Anderson joined the company full time as a pilot after completing his commercial pilots licence in 2001.

  Kevin,Sandra & Fletcher have dedicated themselves to offering clients the highest standards of professional, yet personal, service.
