Our 40 minute flight gave us a great opportunity to see the landscape below us. The pilot also was very knowledgeable and gave us little stories and information about what we were seeing: the Moolayember Gorge (which is very similar to Carnarvon Gorge), Arcadia Valley, the Three Sisters (rock formation), Lake Nuga Nuga and the Woolpack, a rock formation. Our 40 minute flight was packed with great views, 1000 ft above ground, and most of all, the pilot was sensitive to my concerns re heights. and his flying was so expert that I was at ease in the Robinson helicopter, thank you. We had spent a day and a half walking Carnarvon gorge. To sit in a comfortable helicopter and see everything from the air was just a spectacular way to finish our visit to the area.

Amazing experience! The guides were so friendly, happy to have a chat and know the area really well. The flight was incredible experience, really smooth flying and got to see so much of the gorge.

advertise correctly. your brochure says $99 but you charge $125. it intimates you see the carnarvon gorge but only from a long distance away. it says a 10 minute ride but after you include the warm up and safety procedures i doubt we were in the air for more than 5 minutes. sure we went up in a helicopter which i had never done before, but the rest of it was a dud. who wants to see a camping area from above? not me. pity i can get a much cheaper helicopter flight on the sunshine coast. i think you get just a good a view of the surrounding cliffs on the drive in to carnarvon.

Hi our brochure and website clearly state we fly the Moolayamber ranges (it is on the home page) Quote fly with us for the ultimate view of the Moolayember Rangers and the beautiful surrounding farmlands.) - which is part of the Great Carnarvons.... No one can fly up the gorge as it is national park it is a no go flight area. Now each of our flights are approved by QPWS and we hold special commercial permits to operate them. They are GPS marked and tracked. Each flight type is exactly the same path etc, the only factor would be tail wind or head wind on the day. I am happy to send you the gps tracking for the flight to put your mind at rest. The tracking is done by a global company real time and I can spool a mission report for the day and exact moment of your flight. Our company policy for tracking flights is for safety, but the reporting will show how long you were in the aircraft displaying engine on to engine off. The ten minute flight is a very quick flight, we do recommend the 20 minute flight as you see more. Our prices remained unchanged for over 8 years and we only just did the price rise due to the cost of insurance tripling for charter organisations due to covid and the American dollar, (all chopper parts come out of America) As for the flight being a dud you would be the first person in over 10 years of operation that has said that. But then again you never called to complain just did it over the internet..... But like I said - HAPPY TO PROVIDE YOU WITH FLIGHT TRACKING SO YOU CAN SEE YOU WERE IN THE AIR FOR LONGER THAN FIVE MINUTES.....
