Our Services


We offer a full range of helicopter spraying and spreading services. With almost 30 years flying experience, spraying and spreading fertiliser in the greater Auckland, Franklin and North Waikato regions. We are experienced across the full range of agricultural work and can recommend and supply chemicals for every job.

We operate using differential GPS for accurate placement of spray and fertiliser ensuring no pasture damage or striping.

For spraying we use a Carbon Fibre spray system and low drift nozzles for better placement of chemicals on target areas.

With a specialised bulk loading elevator system we can spread most fertilisers from either bulk trucks or bagged fertiliser. We have a carbon fibre bucket with controlled spinners for spreading fertiliser, seed and bait accurately onto target areas.

We can co-ordinate your complete job from advice on the best product to use, timing of application, supplying chemical and carting fertiliser, right through to application.

Oceania Helicopters have been our preferred provider for the past twenty five years. Our operation requires monthly high-analysis fertiliser to be precision spread over the winter months. The co-ordination of application is necessary to ensure we gain maximum growth rates from the fertiliser application.

We have been using Oceania Helicopters on our dairy, beef and cropping operations in the South Auckland and Waikato regions for over 28 years. We have always found products to be applied safely, accurately, at the required rates and promptly. I would thoroughly recommend Oceania Helicopters to anyone who is after a service which is professional, reliable and efficient.
