We loved our helli-ride over Melbourne, fantastic pilot, smooth, great weather, can’t wait to do it again!

An unforgettable experience

Decided to book the private helicopter ride as a surprise proposal. Ed went above and beyond to make sure the surprise proposal was set up the way I wanted. He was able to help book the photographer and even went as far to take a sneaky video during the proposal so we can share it with our friends and family.

We will definitely be back again for another special event. Thank you Ed!

Amazing Flight!!!

It was the best helicopter experience for our family. We could see stunning Melbourne city, beaches and our very own zoo. Our daughter enjoyed being the co pilot with Ed who was our pilot. It was our first time and we had such a great experience for my family. Ed made it happen and made it so memorable
I highly recommend him as your pilot for the helicopter ride!


My partner totally loved it and you are the reason for that. Thank you for the life long memory

Xmas present done right!!

I got my son & partner this flight for Christmas and they both loved it! Seeing the city from so high up my son was amazed and he loved spotting a bunnings! Edward showed them so much and they both enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended

Terindah Estate
Peter (England, United Kingdom)
Thank you so much!

This was a surprise gift for my parents and they were completely blown away by the experience. Ed and the team were overly patient and generous with me as I bombarded them with annoying messages and requests in the lead up to the day, even changing the date last minute due to the weather. My father had been ill but I needn't have worried, Ed and the team couldn't have done a better job of looking after them. They both said it was one of the best days they have ever had and they wouldn't change a second. Holly was fantastic at Terindah too. Thank you again, absolutely first class.

Melbourne City, Beaches & Coastal Adventure
Mrudula Numburi (Victoria, Australia)
Can’t get over this amazing experience

Ed your a star⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ loved every minute of the ride. Ed is so easy going and it feels like meeting an old friend. He is someone who has gone above and beyond to make sure that we enjoy every minute of it. From the time we met him till we finished our ride Ed has always made sure to ask us if we had any special requests and made sure to take care of them. We were given time to take picture before, during and after the ride. Ed gave a clear idea of what the ride was going to look like before we took off and it was way more beautiful than we imagined. I would come back once again. I had waited more than 2years for this ride and it was worth it. Happy to have chosen rotor one as Ed makes sure to give a personal touch to the amazing experience. We still can’t get over the views and experience. And also please make sure to pet Leo on our behalf ❤️
Thanks Ed and the team 😀

Helicopter flight to Terindah

What an amazing experience! Ed and his crew at Rotor One were very professional and made our experience most enjoyable. Likewise at Terindah, where Holly made our dining experience fantastic.
We truely loved the experience and highly recommend it to anyone who loves flying adventures and good food!

Hello Ed,
Both Keith and myself enjoyed our helicopter ride and I want to thank you for your very courteous, polite, thoughtful and the patient manner in which you and your business conducted yourself.
You generally do not get this sort of service from businesses these days
You kept us upto date re our pending flight and on every occasion the way you conducted yourself was very pleasant.

I can not say enough to praise you and your business for the experience and I had to let you know and thank you again.

ps: we can’t wait for the next flight.

Yours sincerely,

First time heli-flyer and it didn't take long for those nerves to change to excitement thanks to Eds encouragement! The views were stunning, all the way from the concrete jungle out to the green countryside. It was positively a flawless experience from start to end!

Levantine Hill
A.Y. (Victoria, Australia)
The perfect surprise gift

My partner and I can not recommend this experience enough, the whole day went above and beyond our expectations and it was the most magical way to spend a surprise birthday.
Our pilot Edward was very friendly and accomodating throughout the whole day, he helped calm our nerves flying and was extremely knowledgeable when answering all our questions about the helicopter, landmarks and the winery. If we thought our pilot couldn't get any better, he even captured our special moments taking spontaneous photos of us and created a polaroid to gift us. The Levantine Hill
Winery Lunch was an exceptional dining experience, the food was delicious and the staff was extremely accomodating to my nut allergy by providing a seperate menu. Overall it was an amazing experience and we will definitely be back again!

Hubert Estate - Yarra Valley Helicopter Tour
Stuart Macdougall (New South Wales, Australia)
Helicopter Flight to Hubert Estate

Such a great day, helicoper ride around the city and out to the Yarra Valley. Really fun trip and great pilot. Thank you Ed.

Amazing experience

Our flight was wonderful, the scenery beautiful and Ed our pilot a terrific host. We were booked for a Wednesday, however as the weather (in true Melbourne style) was forecast to be awful- Ed contacted us on Monday and offered to bring the flight forward to Tuesday and we enjoyed a gorgeous sunny day flight. The reschedule meant we couldn’t go to the winery, however Ed put together a gourmet picnic hamper for us and we enjoyed that on the beach instead which was really lovely . A great way to mark my 50th birthday and tick off a bucket list item.

What a fantastic experience!

Ed!! A true gentleman! We had him as our Pilot for our helicopter ride and he was absolutely fantastic. From the moment we met, he made us feel warm and welcome, like he was a close long-time friend. The helicopter ride, smooth as ever, he showed us all the great spots and explained everything in great detail. If you’re looking for your first helicopter ride experience, be sure to have him as your Pilot for the experience!

Amazing experience best way to see 12 apostles from Melbourne

The whole experience was amazing, we loved flying,
the view of Melbourne city, Flemington, Bay of islands,
London bridge, the arch and 12 apostles! Our pilot
Edward was fun, informative and went above and
beyond. It was for our honeymoon so we added landing

so good.
Would definitely recommend to everyone such a
memorable experience!!

Was absolute fantastic experience in the sky, my girlfriend loved it for her 20th Birthday, thank you!

An exhilarating one hour experience

I had planned to propose my girlfriend and came across this ultimate idea of proposing with a banner in a helicopter. I must say it was one of the best ones for both my gf and I as it was also our first ride in a helicopter. The team made sure we have an amazing time and also coordinated with me for the proposal. The whole experience Was surreal. The view, narration about the views , the banner everything was superb. My girlfriend said yes btw incase you were wondering… Thank you for this exhilarating experience Rotor one!

Phillip Island Helicopter Tour
Maulik Gohel (Victoria, Australia)
Amazing helicopter ride over Phillip Island

We took the Phillip Island helicopter ride with Rotor One and it was amazing! We flew from Melbourne and had saw the penguin parade beach and also phillip island race track! Can't recommend Rotor One highly enough. This helicopter flight to Phillip Island was once in a lifetime and the price was very reasonable considering the time you get to spend in the air! Thanks so much for a great time!
