About Air Milford Queenstown

Staff shot 2015

“Excellent flight and outstanding service. A first class team”
– G Newman, United Kingdom

Air Milford was established in 1993. The name Air Milford is derived from one of New Zealand’s most spectacular Fiords on the South Islands West Coast, Milford Sound.

Hank Sproull joined the company in 1996 and took over as owner of the business in 1998. He continues to maintain a close involvement with the day to day management of the company. Hank fills the role of chief pilot and is also a qualified aircraft engineer.

Hank’s wife, Kerrie, assists in office administration, and their son Antony fulfils the role of Operations Manager and Pilot. For 2015, Air Milford has five full-time pilots and one part-time pilot.

Air Milford purposefully remains a mid-size New Zealand tourism business. This allows the company to remain committed and focused on offering its guests a personal niche sightseeing tour of the Queenstown, Fiordland and South Island regions. Air Milford is a tour company — not a transport company.

The Air Milford team have an intimate knowledge of the scenic wonders of Fiordland, Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound, Mt Cook and the Queenstown region. The ‘hands on’ tours take in magnificent fiords, New Zealand native forests and glaciers. Guests will be introduced to New Zealand’s stunning native birds, seals, penguins and dolphins.

The team at Air Milford look forward to flying with you! Please do contact us with any queries or booking requests.
