Heliworx Waikato is an agricultural and commercial helicopter company that has been operating for 20 years. We operate in the Waikato, North Waikato and Franklin areas. With a recent change in ownership, we have purchased the business from Alister and Lynda Boyd.

I started out as a farm fencer in the Franklin area. I then went on to gain my CPL at the age of 23 and spent two years as ground crew for a helicopter operator in Northland learning the ropes. I then achieved my agricultural rating and worked over most of the North Island for the next eight years before moving overseas. Over the next nine years I was fortunate to gain a wealth of experience in many different helicopters, countries and environments around the world.




I worked in Australia, Canada, US, Antarctica, Timor-Leste, Indonesia and West Papua. I have a wide range of experience such as spraying, top dressing, wildfires, powerline construction, remote jungle operations, seismic heli-drilling, high-altitude mountain work as well as Antarctic flying.

My partner Lydia works as a physiotherapist as well as looking after our two boys, Caleb (five) and Harvey (four). We arrived back in New Zealand early 2022 after living in Ireland. I was touring around the world on a month on/ month off roster and eventually I wasn’t enjoying being away from my family for that long. With always having had the urge to have my own business when the opportunity came up with Heliworx I had to investigate it.

We look forward to maintaining and growing the relationships that Alister and Lynda have built. We hope to be able to assist you with any of your agricultural or helicopter charter needs.

Regards – Allan, Lydia, Caleb & Harvey
