Start your magical evening in Sydney with a 25-minute sunset helicopter tour that shows off the city and its surroundings in the soft glow of dusk. You can either be picked up from your hotel in Sydney or make your own way to the heliport at Sydney Airport (SYD), where your expert pilot meets you.
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 a spacious and modern guest lounge.
After a safety briefing and orientation to the helicopter, take a moment for photo ops with your helicopter before stepping on board. Your pilot provides you with 2-way radio headsets that allow for conversation during your flight. Cameras and video recorders can be taken with you on the helicopter for more fantastic memories of your flight.
