Create memories with scenic flights
EXPERIENCE the thrill of soaring like a bird over the majestic Atherton Tablelands with a scenic flight in a helicopter.
GBR Helicopters offers scenic flights and flight training from the Mareeba Airport, allowing passengers to take in everything from lush rainforest to the real Australian outback.
Owners Chris Cooper and Ian Johnson have a passion for helicopters and showing others the beauty of soaring through the skies.
Mr Cooper said the talented and dedicated team brought years of experience to the company and to their customers and clients alike.
“Since we began operations 20 years ago, we’ve shared our knowledge and love of flight with thousands of customers who’ve enjoyed our continued commitment to going ‘above and beyond’ to make sure that each and every flight is an experience to remember,” he said.
“With this belief, we’ve established ourselves as the leading held-tourism company in the region, working with only the best operators in the industry.
“We have a strong desire to deliver an exceptional experience to everyone who chooses to discover this amazing region with us.”
As well as scenic flights, GBR Helicopters has a flight training centre in Mareeba for those who would like to experience being at the controls.
The centre opened in October 2013. In the first year, eight students achieved their dream of obtaining their pilot licences.
“With 300 perfect flying days a year, Mareeba is a wonderful place to learn how to fly a helicopter,” Mr Cooper said.
“With our facility at Mareeba airport, we can guide people through this whole process, right through to seeing them qualify as a pilot.”
During the school holidays, GBR Helicopters is offering a great discount for families to enjoy scenic flights. Pay for two adults on a full-price scenic flight and one child flies free for a 15 minute or 30 minute flight.
