Just rounded off a great day out at Yulara with a sunset chopper ride with these guys. Jay, our pilot, went the extra mile to ensure a memorable experience for my 2 sons & I, even giving the already sparkling clean canopy another polish when he learned that both boys were keen photographers. The hour long flight showcased the big 3, Uluru, KJ & Lake Amadeus together with some other intriguing sights, including a camel train ambling across a salt pan. Jay’s informative commentary was interspersed with entertaining yarns of his travels & previous career as a tradie & deep sea fisho. By days end we’d enjoyed a birds eye view of the sights, together with some exhilarating & very cool chopper moves. However the real bonus was a inspirational life story from Jay for my teenaged boys. In his words, “discover your passion, then apply patience, persistence & perseverance and you’ll find purpose to have a shot at realizing your dream job.” Thanks Jay for sharing your office and providing us the opportunity to notch up a holiday highlight !

If you are a solo traveller try not to use this company, the only way I can explain my experience is stuffed around. Standby for one experience then ended up booking another, could have gone on the one that I ended up on standby for but the confirmed no all good for tomorrow only to be called hours before to advise that there was a problem with the helicopter and I could not do what I was booked on. Nothing wrong with the helicopter as it took others up. The pilot was lovely and got some photos hence 2 given otherwise it would have been a 0. It was a lot of money to not do what I had planned.

I have done a number of scenic flights, both fixed wing and helicopter, over a period of time. However, this flight would nudge others out of my top spot. The scenery speaks for itself - as stunning as expected. Lake Amadeus exceeded expectations and is a ‘must see.’ But what really made a difference was Amanda, the pilot. Skilled, highly knowledgeable and passionate and a lovely sense of humour. The 55 minutes literally flew - a highly memorable experience and a big thank you to Amanda! We would give her ‘outstanding pilot and guide award.’

What a fantastic way to see the amazing natural landscape. Casey was a fun pilot, putting my sister at ease as she was a bit nervous. We had a little banter between the pilots in the air at the same time, which was also fun! There is no way to explain just how surreal it was to go from the ‘all white’ of the salt lake (with the camel trails) to the red of the desert and the spectacular imagery of the landscape. I would have done both sunset and sunrise if I had the money! It was an hour of flying at sunset and just the two of us with Casey. Well worth the investment in an unforgettable experience.

Our tour gave a great perspective of the whole area, in particular Kata Tjuta and how spread out the site is. We were picked up from and returned to our accommodation by van and briefed before take off. Our pilot was wonderful and ensured that both sides of the helicopter had views of each site visited.

We had done many different things in Uluru with the rock at kata tjuta so we thought that we would go the extra mile and fly out to lake Amadeus Well that absolutely made the trip. Rene our pilot was brilliant and explained anything we needed to know The vastness of the salt plains needed to be seen to be believed would totally recommend it to anyone thinking of a chopper trip whilst in Uluru Go the extra mile you won’t regret it

Did a mid morning trip ( the 36 minute one) to take in both Ayers Rock and kata tjuta . Staff were really helpful with booking and picked us up from the hotel and dropped us at the departure door if the airport too which really helped. Ride was just superb and well led by the pilot ( who did the original booking) and New lad ( can’t remember his name - Joe ?) who explained all the geological aspects . The views are stunning and give a very different aspect on the size of these places. One tip book early
