On Friday evening I flew down to Albany to check out the new sight seeing Helicopter operation that is now available to everyone down there.
The new operation has been formed by Skyhook helicopters who are the operators of the True North helicopter.
All of their pilots have many thousands of hours of piloting helicopters around the country and are very professional in how they approach their business.
Rainor Marshall will be the main pilot for the Albany region operation and he has the advantage of having lived in Albany for many years. He knows the region very well and the history, so you will not only get to see some great visuals whilst exploring Albany by air, you will also get a very good insight into the history of Albany.
The machine they have purchased is a gas turbine powered Squirrel which are both reliable and very smooth, which makes for a great photography platform.
So to the Photogs out there, why not get a team together and share the costs and explore the Albany region by air.
No doubt as time permits Rainor will put together some typical packages to choose from, but until then talk to Rainor about individual charters.
I made a short movie of what I saw around the Salmon Holes in Torndirrup National Park and Breaksea Island in King George Sound.
You can see the movie here.
