Airborne Solutions, also trading as Darwin Helicopter Tours, has been operating in the Northern Territory for over 15 years.
This award-winning helicopter services provider conducts a large range of helicopter charter and aerial work – from aerial security with the NT Police for former US President Barack Obama’s Darwin visit in November 2011 to luxurious air-conditioned extended touring in the Top End and the Kimberley.
A flight in the helicopter is a unique and enjoyable sensation, enhanced by the company’s audited high standards in safety. This, mixed with some of the most incredible landscapes and wildlife in the world, provides an unforgettably satisfying tour experience.
You have the choice – flights and experiences from the range offered through the brochure and website to exclusively designed and personalised air and ground touring to meet your personal preferences.
Conveniently located at the Australian Aviation Heritage Centre on the Stuart Highway, just nine kilometres from the Darwin CBD, Airborne Solutions is easily accessed.
The 10- and 20-minute Darwin Cyclone flights offer brilliant views of the Darwin coastline, CBD and wharf areas at very affordable rates from $120 per person.
The renowned wetlands of the Darwin region are easily accessed via a 70-minute helicopter flight, which provides amazing views of local wildlife including crocodiles, buffalos, wild boars and abundant birdlife. This tour can be upgraded to include a one-hour airboat experience.
One of the most popular tours is the Romantic Sunset Getaway, which provides a food platter and drinks of your choice set up on a remote tropical beach, where you are left alone to enjoy yourself in privacy and peace, returning just on sunset. This 2.5-hour tour is a beautiful experience for two.
Fun is the order of the day on the famous Heli Pub Crawl. Visit three or five of the Top End’s most iconic pubs on a full- (seven hours) or half-day (3.5 hours) tour. This, Airborne’s most popular, tour provides the best views of Darwin City, the west coastline and islands of the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf and the tropical savannah woodlands of the top end. A great day out for all.
If you’re looking for the ultimate helicopter touring experience you can’t go past the ‘three Parks in two days’ helicopter tour. This all-inclusive two-day tour provides stunning views of the wetlands and rock country of Kakadu, Nitmiluk and Litchfield National Parks, including transfers, two boat cruises, Arnhem Land Aboriginal rock art, overnight in Katherine or Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) meals and accommodation.
