Scenic Helicopter Flights Cairns – Nautilus Aviation
Hey guys, back from another amazing little adventure! The weather has been absolutely amazing at the moment, considering the monsoon (rainy season) has already started. We have amazing blue sky days with light sea breezes, fantastic conditions to get out doors.
So with all of this in mind I had the opportunity to enjoy a 30 min scenic helicopter flight over The Great Barrier Reef here in Cairns with Nautilus Aviation.
Number one I love flying so any opportunity to get up there into the blue I grab it with both hands. So it was a bout 2pm in the afternoon on an amazing day about 2 weeks ago, we had a full flight with a couple from Brazil, our pilot and of coarse me (fatty). Even with the extra weight (me) we were still able to take off! Just remember when ever you take a helicopter flight they always weigh you so they can adjust the fuel to weight ratio.
After about 15 min on the ground, we go thru all the safety procedures, we then all jump into our little rocket ship an R44 Helicopter. These little beasts are so maneuverable and can bounce around like a car going over pot holes! but this adds to the excitement of flying around at just over 500 feet.
Now the Great Barrier Reef is big, everybody is always blabbering on about how big it is and how it can be seen from space. But its not until you get up there and look down to see the vastness of this amazing living breathing organism.
Spectacular colors of this natural 7th natural wonder of the world, the Great Barrier Reef never ceases to amaze me. The reef stretches out as far as the eye can see, it can only really be truly appreciated viewed from the air.
So if its in your budget when your here visiting Cairns I recommend you to get your butt in and see the guys at Nautilus Aviation, let them rock your world with an amazing 30 min Scenic Reef Flights. You won’t be disappointed!
