The Cairns Helicopter Fleet

Robinson 44 helicopters - the Robinson 44 seats 3 passengers aside from the pilot, allowing each passenger a window seat for the best view. Not unlike the Robinson 22, these machines are powered by a piston engine, which allows the helicopter to travel at speeds of up to 105 knots. The Robinson 44’s are both near new, and exhibit pristine interiors – allowing for the ultimate in luxury travel.

The Long Ranger Bell 206 and the Bell 407 -  each seats 6 passengers other than the pilot. Being a larger helicopter, these machines are powered by turbine engines, allowing them to travel at speeds of up to 90 knots. All of the Jetrangers have a 5 star interior, allowing you to travel in style and comfort and are air-conditioned.

Jet Ranger Bell 206 - seats 4 passengers - very low noise levels makes it a comfortable flight in the individual leather seats. This helicopter operates on a powerful turbine engine.

Eurocopter EC120 - this helicopter seats 4 passengers other than the pilot, and offers the ultimate in helicopter travel. Exhibiting a turbine engine, the Eurocopter is able to travel at speeds of up to 120 knots. These helicopters are the only machines in Far North Queensland offering a fully air-conditioned cabin, complete with an in-flight stereo system and executive fit-out. Additionally, the Eurocopter is equipped with a multi-camera in-flight filming function, enabling passengers to take away with them a memento of their heli experience.

Eurocopter EC130 - this helicopter seats up to 7 passengers other than the pilot. Much like the EC120 it operates on turbine engine and can travel at speeds up to 120 knots. Much like our other machines it also has a fully air-conditioned cabin, complete with an inflight stereo system and executive fit-out.
