Glen and Diana Cruickshank invite you to tour Queensland’s best kept secret in a personalised helicopter ride
by Michelle Gilmore
Now this is an ultimate adventure I cannot wait to try: helicopters in Rainbow Beach!
Pilot, Glen Cruickshank, and his wife, Diana, opened Rainbow Beach Helicopters late last year and they say everybody has just loved it.
Said Glen, “We’ve had dugong sightings, seen lots of stingrays and dolphins, and 100% of passengers loved the doors off experience.
“Because it’s doors off, you can peer out and look straight down at the beach, it’s right in front of your eyes like a magic carpet ride,” he explained.
“You are sitting in comfort, safely strapped in, but feel like you are right in it – they’re grinning from ear to ear!”
Passionate about the area, the couple have spent a lot of time here as children and then with their own kids camping and fishing at Double Island, Inskip Point and Fraser Island.
After travelling throughout Australia, Glen spent most of his career in the Kimberleys flying over amazing places such as the Bungle Bungles and El Questro Station.
“It was always our dream to come back. Rainbow Beach and Double Island Point are truly standalone, world class destinations.”
With their luxurious 4-seater Robinson R44 helicopter they offer four scenic flights over Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay and Inskip Point.
They also provide charters, special getaway packages and transfers to/from Maroochydore Airport, Fraser Island Resorts, Gympie and Hervey Bay.
So give Glen and Diana a call on 0448 883 442 and experience the thrill and exhilaration that only a helicopter can provide!
