NZ Helicopter Association
For nearly 60 years the Aviation Industry Association of New Zealand (AIA) has represented the interests of commercial helicopter operators in New Zealand however, until now no group represented the entire helicopter community.

The New Zealand Helicopter Association was inaugurated at the 2009 annual Aviation Industry Conference Week and is the voice to speak authoritatively on any matter relating to helicopters and their operation in New Zealand.
Key stakeholders, such as the CAA, acknowledge that the existence of a strong representative voice improves the focus on helicopter issues. Examples of similar bodies which have achieved success for their specific sectors of aviation include the Warbirds Association, Royal New Zealand Aero Club, and the Society of Licensed Aircraft Engineers.
