Glenorchy Air Safety Policy.
 Safety and Quality
Glenorchy Air has long recognised the importance of developing Safety and Quality Systems. We employ on an independent Safety and Quality Assurance organization to oversee and develop our Safety and Quality Assurance programmes.
 Passenger Safety
Our brand new Aeroplanes have three point safety belts for all our passengers. As we have to carry life jackets on our aeroplanes all our passengers wear them on our over water flights. These are the modern self inflation type and passengers soon forget they are wearing them.
Glenorchy Air is the only Queenstown based aeroplane operator to have purchased brand new aeroplanes for scenic flight operations since the 1970's We purchased a brand new GA 8 Airvan in 2003 (see photo below)and also operate a new 2004 year Cessna 172SP. Last year we re-engined our older Cherokee Six aeroplane with the latest technology Textron Lycoming engine. This year we re-engined our GA 8 Airvan with the latest technology engine as well. "Preventive Maintenance" is the mainstay of our maintenance philosophy and practice.
All our pilots undergo regular training to ensure they maintain a high level of competence. All pilots and most other staff hold current First Aid Certificates.
