Phillip Island Helicopters Newhaven Reviews
Scenic Flight 5. Jan 04, 2016
We chose to partake in a helicopter flight on our recent visit to Phillip Island as we felt this would give us a beautiful view of the surrounding area and help map out the island.
We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children (ages 5 and 9) so we were split into 2 groups (due to the helicopters only having seating for 3 passengers.)
The flight we took was the 25 minutes Flight 5, flying the full island (cost $225.00 per person.)
From the minute we booked to the minute we boarded, it was easy and trouble-free.
On arrival we were given a safety briefing before exiting the office to the air field and again these rules were explained. The safety briefing included how to approach the helicopter, how to do the seat belts up and how to open the door in an emergency.
The pilot was informative as we flew, pointing out landmarks and areas of interest. He asked where we had already been and where we planned to go in the time we had there.
After the two flights, the assistant asked if we wanted to get a family shot in front of the 2nd helicopter so we were escorted back onto the air field for this (the 1st helicopter had taken off with another group of passengers.)
All in all, we loved this experience. We were very happy with the information shared by the pilot and thought it helped make the flight wonderful.
My husband has flown in helicopters a lot however even he said the flight and service was wonderful.
I don't hesitate to recommend this company to others.
