What to expect — Melbourne by helicopter with Rotor One

If you've ever dreamt of flying over Melbourne from the comfort of a helicopter, now is your chance. Arrive at our hangar and relax in our lounge while your pilot walks through your flight and answers any questions.

Walk out onto the tarmac for a few photos with your helicopter with the Melbourne City skyline in the background. Your pilot will provide a short safety briefing before you jump onboard the helicopter for your scenic flight.

You'll hear the chatter of air traffic control as your helicopter picks up into a hover at the helipad before taking off to 1,500 feet (450 metres) and cruising at 185 km/h for an orbit of Melbourne CBD. As the Melbourne Star, Docklands and Eureka Tower come into view you'll bank left towards the coast where the flight starts to get really exciting.

Your helicopter will descend to 500 feet (150 metres) above the ground to fly you low and slow down the coast of Port Phillip Bay. Pass over St Kilda Pier and famous St Kilda Boardwalk on your way to the iconic Brighton Beach Bathing Boxes in all their stunning colours before flying an orbit over the sunken Submarine from WW1 at Sandringham Marina.

Turn back towards Melbourne to fly the same amazing route from a different angle and this time with amazing views of Albert Park, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Rod Laver Arena and the MCG on your way back to the helipad at Essendon.

As your helicopter touches down we guarantee you'll be left with a smile on your face... This is what makes our day and is the reason we love what we do at Rotor One.

Where are you located?

Rotor One is located at Essendon Airport which is 15 from Melbourne CBD. Our address is Hangar 7 Wirraway Rd, Essendon Fields and we have off-street parking next to our building. When you arrive look for the red door that says 'Melbourne Heli'.

When should I arrive?

Please arrive 10 minutes before your booking begins for a relaxed experience.

Do you depart from other locations, like the City Helipad?

We depart from Essendon Airport as you have an amazing view of the Melbourne City skyline from the moment you step onto the tarmac. We do not offer flights from the City Helipad on the Yarra River.

What is the minimum age requirement for children?

Children aged 3 years and older can fly. Our pilots will give them special attention to ensure they have an amazing time. All children will have their own window seat and pay the same seat price (we don't offer discounts for children as we make sure they have even more fun than the adults 😁)

Can bad weather prevent us from flying?

Yes, adverse weather conditions such as low cloud, fog, heavy rain or high winds may require your flight to be delayed or rescheduled. If this is the case, your pilot will contact you at least 2 hours prior to your booking time to reschedule your flight to another day/time or provide a full refund.

Google says there's will be bad weather on the day. Should I reschedule?

There's no need to contact us to reschedule based on a weather forecast as they're often inaccurate, especially in Melbourne! We use live weather data on the day of your flight to determine if flights can be conducted safely. We'll contact you at least 2 hours prior to your flight if bad weather could delay your flight.

Why do I need to provide my weight?

We use this to calculate the weight and balance of the helicopter prior to flight. If you have any guests weighing over 120kg or a combined passenger weight of more than 240kg, please contact us prior to booking.

Can I use my camera or phone during flight?

Yes, we encourage you to take as many photos and videos on the ground, and in the air, as possible.

What should I wear?

Please bring a pair of sunglasses and you're welcome to wear clothing appropriate to the weather. We do recommend a wind-breaker jacket for any sunrise / doors-off flights and also when flying on our 12 Apostles tour as both experiences can be windy.

Do I need to be double vaccinated to fly?

We encourage all our passengers to be double vaccinated to fly.

Can I bring any luggage?

Light handbags and small backpacks weighing less than 5kg can be carried. For any larger items please contact us prior to your flight.

Can I fly if I'm pregnant?

Yes, and we recommend flying prior to your third trimester.

Can I fly if I'm in a wheelchair?

Yes, our hangar is wheelchair-accessible and we warmly welcome passengers with special needs. Please contact us if you have any questions.

What is your cancellation policy?

Please see our cancellation policy for more information.

Contact us anytime on (03) 7065 1888 or concierge@rotor.one if you'd like to make changes to your booking or have any questions.

Can I reschedule my flight?

Yes, up to 48 hours before your departure time and on one occasion. We unfortunately cannot accomodate any reschedule requests with less than 48 hours notice as we make commitments to ensure your Pilot and Helicopter are reserved exclusively for you on the day.

Can I get a refund on my flight if my plans change?

Yes, up to 48 hours before your departure time. Please note there is a 10% cancellation fee for any bookings cancelled at your request.

What happens if the helicopter cannot fly due to bad weather?

Our team will call you up to 2 hours before your departure to reschedule your flight or provide a full refund.

Can I get a refund on a Gift Voucher I bought for someone?

Gift Vouchers are non-refundable and cannot be redeemed for cash, however their value can be used towards and helicopter experience we offer.
