    What To Expect

    Make your own way to the helipad where you meet your pilot. Your helicopter flight experience begins with a greeting and check-in from the friendly operations staff, followed by a thorough safety briefing in the comfort of the modern and spacious guest lounge.

    After the safety briefing, head out, with time to snap photos in front of your helicopter before boarding. Cameras and video recorders can be taken with you on the helicopter for more fantastic memories of your flight. After getting comfortable in your seats and putting on the provided headset, listen to your pilot’s commentary as your helicopter lifts up into the sky. 

    Upon take-off enjoy full panoramic views of the Sydney skyline, Pacific Ocean, and the historic port of Botany Bay. Within minutes of departure, your experienced and skilled pilot has you above the glistening waters of Maroubra Beach and tracking north along the coast at 500-feet. See the picturesque coastline of the eastern suburbs beaches including Coogee, Clovelly, and also the world-famous Bondi Beach with the aquamarine waters sparkling against the Sydney sun. Admire the spectacular houses of Dover Heights and Vaucluse perched on the chiseled sandstone cliffs as you continue northbound to Sydney Harbour heads and the world’s largest and most beautiful natural harbor.

    Your experienced pilot guides your aircraft through the magnificent Sydney Harbour giving you an unforgettable view of icons such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Taronga Zoo, Watsons Bay, Rose Bay, and Manly Cove. Looking towards the horizon you can see the rest of Sydney stretching out towards the Sydney Olympic site and further afield to the foothills of the UNESCO-listed Blue Mountains.

    As you start your return journey to the heliport you fly past some of Sydney’s great sporting arenas including the Sydney Football Stadium, Sydney Cricket Ground, and Randwick Racecourse. Throughout the flight, your pilot provides you with informative commentary via Bose's voice-activated headsets allowing you to talk with the pilot and your other passengers whilst on the helicopter.

    After the initial shock of being on a helicopter, the experience was unforgettable. Seeing Sydney from above was amazing
    Absolutely amazing
    Stephen_P, Feb 2020
    This was the culmination for me of a month of touring New Zealand and Australia and it was amazing. The flight took in all the Sydney highlights - the harbour bridge, the opera house, the harbour itself, Bondi beach and Botany Bay. The staff made the arrangements very easy and smooth from pick up to the flight itself. They are all very welcoming and friendly and above all very professional - thank you.
