Scenic helicopter flights over the stunning Coffs Coast. Precision Helicopters can take you just about anywhere - it’s always special to showcase the Harbour and International Marina and to provide our guests with a bird’s eye view of our sensational turquoise coastline and beautiful beaches; often to see dolphins playing in the crystal clear waters or whales, in season, during their annual migration. There are also the boutique style resorts, magnificent mountains and secretive waterfalls.South Solitary Island guided tours and helicopter flights in July each year.

I rang Precision Helicopters to enquire about my adult son, a person with disabilities, taking a trip with them to Solitary Islands accompanied by his support worker. My initial enquiry was whether they accept the NSW Companion Card, which by the way they don't. However, as the conversation progressed I was told my son would not be able to get... More

As the conversation in relation to the South Solitary Island Tours and the companies regulatory requirements were not completed, and as we don’t have "danceswithdingoes"contact details we were unable to properly explain the legal requirements in relation to carriage of passengers. If the son abides by the Terms and Conditions of the Tours (just like all other paying passengers) there... More

thank you for the visit to our wonderful South Solitary Island. Glad we could take you this year, it is very popular and with only very limited numbers we can take, it does sell out quickly.

I purchased a scenic flight for my wife’s ‘special ‘ birthday. The Precision team could not have been more helpful. The flight took in some of the areas fantastic sights (including our home) and was a highlight off the day, thoroughly enjoyed by all.

A helicopter flight in your own area is always a wonderful idea. It makes it even more memorable when it is for that "special" birthday - age is no limit! Thanks again and so happy your wife loved your present. Hope to have her (and you) fly with us in the future. More

I've used the services of Precision Helicopters on a personal level and also for business. If you are wanting awesome scenic flights in the Coffs Harbour area, or want to take aerial photos, don't go anywhere else, this company provides a fantastic experience for adults and children and their staff are very friendly!

We are always happy to fly for business or pleasure! Flying by helicopter is the only way to get a real "overview" of the Coffs Coast area. So happy you are a "frequent flyer" and you were able to capture some great photos. Hope to have you (and your friends/family) fly with us in the future. More
