We had a flight to the reef with your company on Sun 26/11/12 apart from a small hiccup with weights of other passengers & a slight delay for another chopper to arrive , we finally were airborn. Jackie our pilot was excellent & we would like to extend our thanks to your staff for their friendliness and the extra effort they went to to make a unfortunate delay pleasant. We would recommend your company to our friends & colleges as the preferred company for scenic flights.
