Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. Although what we love most is to share the spectacular sights of Phillip Island it is always nice to get a change of scenery and transport passengers such as yourself to Melbourne. It definitely faster and way less traffic :-). Glad you enjoyed your flight hope to see you back again... More

I have been coming to the island for over 20 years and never done this before. What an amazing experience.

I've been visiting the Island for over 35 years as my husband's family has a house there. I've always wanted some aerial photos of the property and asked PI Helicopters if they would include a trip over the house as part of our flight.

Thankyou for your kind feedback. We have no problems accommodating requests that are slightly out of our regular flight paths as long as we meet regulations and safety requirements. We are slightly biased but Phillip Island by air is one of those "must do" experiences and well worth it. So glad you were able to view your husband's family property... More

Seeing Phillip Island from the air was amazing. All the channels in the water. The baby seals that looked like dots. We just loved this. The helicopter is very small (looked a bit like a toy) but we felt very safe. The pilot was very knowledgeable of the area. And very friendly.

We loved our helicopter flight! We did the Cape Woolamai flight, and it's amazing to see how beautiful the island is from the air. Our pilot was so friendly and professional and pointed out all of the landmarks. Would definitely recommend this to anyone, and I think I will definitely be back again.
