Amazing flight our pilot Steve was brilliant making sure everyone could see each highlight by flying around each side, every passenger has a window seat so you can’t miss out on all the spectacular views and photo opportunities, the Plane was comfortable and we felt totally safe, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, Chris organised our pick up and drop off, he went above and beyond, very safety conscious company, highly recommend

This was just WOW, The pilot was so good, so friendly and soooo knowledgeable. This was not my first time flying over the reef but first in a fixed wing and by far the best. My wife and 4yr old were blown away as it was their first time. Just do this trip

This is worth the money!! Great morning out with GSL aviation! Chris was amazing with our booking and pick up, so easy to book through and made our experience feel so personalised. He paid so much attention to ensuring we got the photo we wanted out front of the plane! He also provided some great recommendations for the rest of our stay in cairns and port Douglas. Can’t recommend enough!!!

Just stunning. The pilot was engaging and knowledgeable. The flight was smooth, comfortable and fun. Team understood and were kind about the heat for those who weren’t local. As with other reviewers, my only wish is that I took a longer flight!

We traveled on the above air line from Cairns out to the barrier reef as well as Green Island and a couple of other Islands on our way we saw coral, sea turtles and dolphins Captain for the trip was Chief Pilot Greg Letondeur who new the area well and kept us entertained the whole 40 minutes of the trip we had a window seat each and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Both my wife and I would recommend anyone traveling to Cairns not to miss this great adventure Keith & Sue Harvey Bribie Island QLD
