Located in one of the world’s most famous World Heritage Listed National Parks we have the privilege to operate in this truly stunning Alpine Range.

Located next to the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre we have been operating for over 10 years around Cradle Mountain so you can ensure to be in safe hands.

Our pilots are all Tasmania based year throughout ensuring they have the best possible knowledge of its history and terrain. Each one of our pilots have been trained extensively according to the most current aviation requirements. On top of that, all our pilots have conducted in-house training to provide you with a broad commentary on your flight(s).

Whether you chose to fly the famous “Cradle Mountain and Fury Gorge Adventure” or stop on one of the mountain peaks for a picnic overlooking the many beautiful lakes in the area, we look forward to assisting you create your unique experience with memories to cherish forever.

Depending on the group size we use a Robinson R44 helicopter or a Bell 206 Jetranger or a combination of these aircraft. As we operate in conjunction with Tasmanian Helicopters we have other aircraft and pilots available should larger aircraft be required.

Apart from scenic/charter flights, Cradle Mountain Helicopters are able to provide transfers around Tasmania as well as a wide variety of Aerial Operations. If you have an enquiry please feel free to contact one of our team members today.’
