What to expect — Melbourne by helicopter with Rotor One:
If you've ever dreamt of flying over Melbourne from 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.
With your camera ready, Docklands and the Melbourne Star will come into view as your bank left towards Melbourne's Southbank. With amazing views of Station Pier, Albert Park and St Kilda on your right and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Rod Laver Arena and MCG on your left, you'll have a hard time choosing which way to point the camera!
As your helicopter returns to Essendon Airport and 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.
