A bit of a last minute add on to our tour, but an amazing experience to fly over the Western Macdonnell Ranges. Kieran was a great pilot who was able to point out some of the local land forms and sights. The left turn was a high light sitting up the front, without doors made it a little bit of... More

We were staying at Glen Helen and after talking with the pilot Ciarán decided to take a flight over the West MacDonnell Range. It was amazing. We will remember the experience long after we have forgotten the price. We enjoyed seeing the gorges and hills that we have walked over. Thank you Ciaran.

Wonderful experience - I got the front seat. The young fellow who stayed with us while the pilot took the others up was wonderful. Very considerate and polite. Only new to the job but a very big asset to the company.

Setting up the Heli charter from overseas was easy and communication with their office was absolutely painless and in time. Our p/u worked very well and we were in the air on time, going on 1 day flight to Uluru and back. This is a great experience and to see the landscape this way is just awesome. Our pilot was... More

To really appreciate the beauty of Glen Helen is to take a helicopter tour as it is exciting, informative and breath-taking. For a 15 minute flight it is $70 per person and money well spent.

This was the most amazing experience for the family. The guied was knowledgeable about the area and explained where we were and what we were seeing in detail. My children were apprehensive at first but he explained in great detail and relaxed them that they had so much fun they wanted to do it again. Thanks for an amazing time

We took the 12min Scenic Flight to Finke River that was amazing with bird eye views to the West MacDonnell Ranges, Finke RIver, Sonder Mountains, Ormiston Gorge, Glen Helen Village, Organ Pipes formation etc. Dave, the pilot did a wonderful job with his commentaries of the area and aboriginal stories!

Today I went on a flight with this company over the Glen Helen area and it was absolutely gorgeous. The flight was only 15 minutes but it felt so much longer.

This was one of the best experiences I enjoyed during my recent journey on The Ghan from Darwin the Adelaide. I am so happy I grabbed the chance when the train did its scheduled stop in Alice Springs. The fantastic experience of seeing the MacDonnell Ranges from the air, and the outskirts of Alice Springs outweighs the very acceptable cost... More
