Tablelands Advertiser - - LIFESTYLE -

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.
