helicopter in HK?

I need to arrange a helicopter of the harbour for a friend. Does anyone know how and with whom I should arrange this with?

Thanks.

I don't have personal experience with these, being more likely to be on the lower deck of the Star Ferry, but...

this is where a good travel agent could be helpful. Otherwise, find out where your friend is staying & have concierge make arrangements

There is an amazing amount of helicopter traffic in Hong Kong -- probably the most of any city these days for civilian flights. Including late at night (3 am) for moguls heading home from who knows where. Some of the hotels have heliports (e.g. The Peninsula has one on the roof of their new tower), and transfer from the airport to the hotel by helicopter is available. It is very expensive, though (something like $1K, due to high airport landing fees). Much cheaper to fly around the city instead.
