    Over the Easter break my family and I were staying at Airlie Beach, it was so beautiful. We wanted to make the most of it so we booked a scenic flight through GSL Aviation and got to see all the breathtaking views from the air. GSL were amazing! quality service for competitive prices. Our little ones didn’t miss out either, my 2yr old daughter flew for free! Definitely recommend this company to anyone travelling around the area and interested in flying over the Whitsundays and/or Great Barrier Reef 🙂
