Frequently Asked Questions for Great Barrier Reef Scenic Helicopter Flights
Can we take photographs in the helicopters
All helicopters have clear windows which enable you to take some incredible photographs. Some of the helicopters have windows that can be opened for photo shooting as well. All we ask is that when taking pictures no part of the body or camera is placed outside of the helicopter, and straps are not to be placed around the neck for safety reasons.
What happens if the weather is bad?
If at the time of departure, the pilots deem that the flight cannot go ahead due to bad weather conditions and thus raising safety concerns, the flight will be cancelled. If this occurs, the tour operator will make every endeavour to place you on an alternate flight that will meet your requirements. If this is not plausible, a full refund will be offered.
Why are weights so important on a helicopter?
Like aeroplane flights, weights play an important role in helicopters. We need to ensure that helicopters on all flights are not overloaded under the Civil Aviation Safety Authority regulations. For this reason, we need you to provide accurate weights when booking. There is no need to be concerned as your weights are kept strictly confidential and you will also be weighed on arrival, including your luggage.
