Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a must do if you’re on the Fleurieu Peninsula. David is a great instructor who handed control of the aircraft over as soon as we reached altitude and gave me choices of where to fly. We flew west from Goolwa along the coast over our home and to Granite Island then traced the coastline to the Goolwa barrage, over Hindmarsh Island before David instructed me through our descent to land. I was surprised how long I had control. The aircraft is easy to fly, I loved the whole experience.

All I can say is thank you to David. The smile is still on my face a week later. This is the first activity after a serious medical episode and David just knew what to do to make my flight unforgettable with a memory that is still lasting

Although I'd flown other aircraft before, flying a Gyroplane was a unique and fabulous experience. David is an experienced pilot, informative and enthusiastic. The Gyroplane is safe and easy to fly. The views are spectacular. I highly recommend it to both rookie and experienced pilots!

I had a one hour lesson flying with David. We flew at around 500 feet at 55 knots. Fantastic views of everything from that height. The gyroplane is very safe and easy to fly. David is a very experienced pilot with fixed wing and helicopter experience.

What a great adventure and a fabulous way to see the Fleurieu Peninsula. I am a huge scaredy cat and hate heights, but couldn't resist the opportunity to go on a gyroplane. David was a fantastic pilot and so accommodating....wasn't scared at all. Thanks David for a brilliant afternoon that we will NEVER forget!

Best kept secret of the Fleurieu peninsular. An Idilic location complete with runways in a rural setting suitable for pilots or non pilots. High tech CBUS allows state of the art connections with the outside world.
a TOP spot. David knows how to entertain.
Highly recommended

Best flying experience ever. I loved every part of it and David is awesome. The freedoom's feeling with the wind and the not-too-high altitude is to be added yo everyone's bucket list.
Not only the view of our countryside was stunning, we also got the chance to see dolphins, tunas and seals.
I can't recommend it enough. Still have a smile on me.

My wife treated me to an exhilarating flight in a open top gyro plane. Loved it so much, I'm already saving up my small change and looking forward to my next flight. The in- helmet communication system meant that David and I could carry on a great conversation whilst in flight, enhancing the experience even more. I would recommend this to anyone who loves flying and beautiful scenery.
It's also incredibly safe.

This was my first gyroplane flight. It was not only an incredible experience - it provided perhaps the most spectacular birds eye view possible of the south coast from Goolwa to Victor Harbor. This experience cannot be replicated. The flight was also very safe and flown by David Owen - a highly professional and experienced senior gyroplane pilot who still remains passionate about gyroplanes after decades of flying. He is also a great guide of the sights on the ground.
