Feed your child's curiosity for planes and helicopters.

On our family-friendly flights your child flies in the front seat as co-pilot! Their window seats have unobstructed views and we enlist their help to spot popular landmarks as they fly over Melbourne.

Our pilots pay special attention to kids from the moment they arrive. We'll sit them in the pilot seat on the ground to demonstrate the physics behind how helicopters fly and give them the opportunity to ask as many questions as they want.

Your kids won't realise they're learning about physics, aerodynamics and aviation and they'll simply be immersed and engaged with every part of their helicopter experience.

An unforgettable 'first' with your child.

Do you remember the time your kids took their first step or spoke their first words? Create another unforgettable 'first' and accompany them as they fly in a helicopter for the first time.
