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.

Exceptional customer service. From the moment you arrived Darcy and crew were so accommodating and friendly. My son was very nervous to start with however by the end of the flight he was loving it. In fact he now wants to be a helicopter pilot. This was purely because of Darcy. He listened to my son and made him feel at ease. Darcy went above and beyond. Thank you so much. We definitely won’t forget the experience we had flying with you.

We did the longer flight which took in Cowes as well as Seal Rocks, The GP circuit Etc. I would highly recommend this flight as it gives a great view of all the Island and surrounds. The view was spectacular, the staff and pilot were friendly and helpful, and the pilot was very knowledgeable and informative. Fantastic way to get a good idea of the features of the Island and we took the pilots advice for a great scenic drive afterwards.
To many of us, these experiences certainly aren't cheap, but I have no hesitation in saying it was a once in a lifetime experience you should do.
These folks obviously enjoy what they do (who wouldn't) and it shows.

My wife and I plus our 5 year old son took a scenic flight with Phillip Island Helicopters and it was one of the best helicopter tours we’ve been on. The ground crew were super friendly and welcoming and our pilot Darcy was incredible. Darcy was very knowledgeable of the area and engaged wonderfully with our inquisitive 5 y/o. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to view this magical part of Victoria from the air.

Many thanks. As you can tell Darcy loves his job, we also think he is incredible. We especially love taking up kids as you mentioned they are usually so inquisitive and we are happy to oblige. You never know they might be a pilot one day. Thankyou for taking the time to share your experience with us
