This was our first trip to Uluru and the helicopter flight was a surprise for my husband. The ride was truly amazing, to see the rock from that vantage point was truly awesome! Our pilot was such a nice guy and very knowledgeable about the area which provided an added bonus. I only wish I would have purchased the 30 minute flight instead of the 15 minute - we could have stayed up there all day!
My Husband and I were visiting several places in Australia and his No1 wish for to visit Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the "Red Centre" and to take a Helicopter ride over the area. We were picked up from our Hotel, Desert Gardens, by a very friendly Pilot and Helicopter Crew Member and made our way to the Helicopter Station, which is at the Airport. After both Crew had carried out the safety checks, we set off for our ride. We had decided on the longest rise (36 minutes), in order to see "The Olga's" as well as Uluru. We were not disappointed by what we saw. The Pilot was very informative, entertaining, but professional and we took great photo's. The land and rocks are a wonderful shade of Red, (depending on what time you view them) my only disappointment was that the Helicopter, which was a rescue vehicle, had front and back facing seats, which meant limited or no vision of the sights, at certain times. Other than this, it was a most enjoyable experience.
I am Ian Boraston who did the heli trip which was a present from my daughters and families.. And it was fantastic.
The other people on board , Oliver and Caroline took ipad films of the trip and e-mailed them to me , so they will have photos to send you .
I have never been up in a copter before , and the thrill of doing both Ularoo and the Olgas, Kaja Tjuta, was fantastic, And Tim the pilot was very thorough , friendly and helpful .
Thanks , and well done
We enjoyed the aerial tour of Uluru. The view was amazing. I would have given this 5 stars except the windows in the rear seats had scratches that caused blurred areas in the video and still photos. It would have been nice if one of us was offferred a choice of sitting in the front. We shared the tour with a relatively new employee from the resort who was given the front passenger seat.
We did the short trip but wish we were up longer. Great pilot and great views. The chopper was very stable and we felt comfortable the whole trip. This is a great way to get a better perspective on the rock. The pilot was very informative and full of interesting facts. Highly recommend this trip.
It was great experience even though we had bad luck with weather. The helicopter was a bit small, but there was only our group inside, which was good. And the pilot was awsome. He told us a lot about the places we were above.
It was great!
I enjoyed the trip! Great views of both "rocks". We had lots of photo opportunities, and the pilot/commentator was excellent. Our kids 17 and 15 thought the whole experience was "outstanding". Gave us, literally, a new perspective on the area.
Definitely provides a different perspective of Uluru and Kata Tjuta - well worth it!
Yes, was well worth doing. A word of advice though: if you suffer from motion sickness, remember to take your medication around the time of pickup. My partner suffers and didn't allow enough time for hers to kick in. Ask for sick bag prior to take off. She still loved it and would definitely do it again.
We only did the Uluru flight, but I would be tempted to do the longer one that takes in Kata Tjuta if I were to do it again.
