The benefit of the small planes is that everyone gets a window seat and you can go out to Lake Armadeus. The sunrise flight was spectacular and I took nearly 100 photos in the one hour flight.

We took the Sunrise Ultimate Combined Kings Canyon and Red Center Experience which is 5-6 hour tour. It is pricey, but well worth the experience. This is a combination tour with a flight around Uluru and the Olgas and then over the lake and to Kings Canyon Station. At the station you do a helicopter tour over Kings Canyon. Chrissy... More

We enjoyed this unique adventure of a flight with pilotes Sebastian (air plane) and Chris (helicopter). These are great guys and experts in showing the most marvelous places in the outback from the sky. An awesome tour leaving us with hundreds of impressions captured in our photographs.

Having walked around Uluru we were lucky enough to see it from above in a small plane. Ben, our pilot/chauffeur, was brilliant - very friendly and informative. He gave us some inside info on life in Uluru and the history. To see it from above was just awesome. It was great to be able to do it altogether as a... More

We flew in a six seat plane around Uluru and Kata Tjuta and enjoyed the experience immensely. Our pilot pointed out the secret men's site and the secret women's site at the rock and was very informative throughout the whole flight. Each person is seated next to a window which gives one a great view from the air. I have... More

What a way to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Sun rising and full moon setting over as we fly with our hospitable pilot Reiss. The view was stunning and Reiss provided information about the local customs as well as a little humour. The flight was smooth and comfortable. I highly recommend taking this once in a life time experience.

Hello, It is so hard to pick whether to go for a sunrise or a sunset tour and it is a constant debate here at the office as to which one is better! It is great you got to experience the beauty of Uluru and Kata Tjuta from the air with us. Thank you for the review. Regards Chrissy More

Seeing Uluru from up high was a highlight of our trip. It was a lot of fun sitting up front in the Cessna too! Chrissy was a fantastic pilot and tour guide. She went out of her way to make my wife feel comfortable (my wife has a fear of light aircraft!).
