Moorabbin Airport is 45 minutes from the city and has the second busiest airspace in Australia due to extensive flight training.

Helicopters are a safer mode of transport than cars and the safest form of transport in General Aviation according to a study by TPG. Helicopters are subject to strict service intervals every 50 hours, inspected daily prior to any flight duties and have the benefit of being able to land anywhere and at any time in the event of an emergency.
