“Excellent!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We couldn't make the climb to the rim of King's Canyon so decided to fly over it. Well worth the money! We did the 15 minute flight and had fabulous views of the canyon and surrounding area. As the name says - very professional outfit. We had a lovely young lady pilot (sorry can't remember your name!) who was very knowledgeable about the area. Lovely smooth and extremely safe flight. Loved it!
Thank you.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This service is well organised and a pleasure to deal with. We had planned to do the rim walk in the morning and the helicopter flight in the afternoon. Easily booked direct or as we did through Kings Canyon Resort reception. We booked in for the 15min flight, and saw everything as advertised. Solid commentary, and able to answer our questions during the flight. Friendly staff, complimentary pick up (even from the camping area). Highly recommended.

“Not what I expected”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We booked a flight to see Ayers rock. It was not until we were airborne that we were advised that flights were not allowed around the southern or northern ends or along the eastern side due to sacred site issues. With local indigenous people living on the eastern side. So we only got to see the western side, with its sacred sites, which was viewable from various points on the ground. Even though I was disappointed about not going right around the rock the flight was good just to see the surrounding country side and put the rock, the Olgas and Mount Connors in perspective. Getting up and personal from ground level on the walk along the rock was awesome.

“Didn't get a chance to find out”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

So you run a tourist business, and then close on the middle day of a long weekend, during the tourist season???? Without letting tour companies know???? That's what happened to us - our AAT Kings bus pulled up to find a hand written note on the door - closed Sunday 8th June, reopen Monday 9th June. No notice given to the tour company that brings them business every day.

So they missed out on a few paying customers that day. About $90 for a short flight near the canyon, $25 for the canyon flight. Too bad for them that there were a few on the bus that would have flown. Strongly suggest you ring ahead and see if they're open.

“Chopper trip over Kings canyon”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Experienced a fantastic Helicopter ride over Kings Canyon and my only regret was the 15 minutes was over far too quickly as I was totally engrossed with the stunning views that the Helicopter afforded and the ongoing commentary from the pilot was very informative, would highly recommend this flight to anyone visiting Kings Canyon 10 out of 10 for me
