Helicopter Tour

We have just had the bay tour, just over an hour flying past the city and completely around the bay, what an experience. I would highly recommend Melbourne Heli for their professional approach, very clear and friendly instructions at the start and made us both feel very comfortable during the entire flight, amazing experience.

Amazing adventure in the sky!

This was my first time flying in a helicopter and I was very excited and a little nervous. Our pilot was incredible, leading us through the whole experience, explaining how the helicopter worked and the safety which really reassured me. The flight around Melbourne and the bay views were stunning. Such a spectacular surprise date! Thank you for an amazing experience!

Bucket List Experience

Bucket list ✔️. What an amazing experience with Rotor one. We choose a flight over the coastal waters of the Peninsula & it did not disappoint !

From the minute we met Ed I knew we were in good hands, not only is he knowledgeable but an all round great guy who loves sharing his passion of flying.

The scenic view from up above is like nothing I imagined, seeing some beautiful landmarks & even our own place was very special. The ride itself was smooth & relaxing… breathtaking in parts.

Highly recommend, do yourself a favour & make a booking. It’s something you won’t regret.
