a little bit about us…
gbr helicopters above and beyond

Commercial Helicopter Services CairnsSome twenty years ago, we called ourselves GBR Helicopters because we’re passionate about everything to do with the Great Barrier Reef and flying our fleet of helicopters over this world heritage icon. In that time we’ve shared the reef and our local knowledge with thousands of customers who’ve enjoyed our continued commitment to going ‘above and beyond’ making sure that each and every flight is an experience to remember…

GBR Helicopter joined the Morris Aviation Group in January 2020 and continues to work with Reef Magic Cruises and their Marine World Pontoon to showcase the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef.

Beyond our tourism and leisure activities, there’s a wealth of local knowledge and experience that we use in GBR commercial operations servicing all of FNQ. Our film and television work has been seen by millions of viewers, with a list of high profile productions that would make an impressive movie credit list in its own right.

We’ve gathered a talented and dedicated team that bring years of experience to the company and most importantly to our customers and clients alike. With a modern fleet, as you’d expect we have a number of dedicated facilities in key locations. Our headquarters are situated at Cairns Airport – General Aviation and we have remote operations in Horn Island and the Torres Straits.

When we say ‘above and beyond’ we really do mean it. So, whether you want to immerse yourself in the Great Barrier Reef, grab the perfect piece of footage or need to sling half a tonne of equipment into place – GBR Helicopters has it covered.
