Special birthday

My wife had a wish to celebrate he 50th birthday on a food and wine tour in Provence France, but Covid put a stop to that. I needed to find something that would be equally memorable and the trip out to Levantine delivered in every way.

I can highly recommend this for that really special occasion


Absolutely Great Experience

We had an incredible time and made our great family memories on our Rotor One chopper ride. The whole team was great, friendly and made us feel welcome. Ed was a genius pilot. Ed also took us to the camo helicopter for my boys to learn little more. He made our experience great and safe. Thanks for an unforgettable morning. My boys and I didn’t wanted to land, and we can’t wait to go back up again soon. I highly recommend this type of activities for any family looking for something another level during school holidays. Peace ✌🏽

Birthday gift and a great experience

I thought a helicopter trip above Melbourne would be a unique event to commemorate a special birthday to my sister Nehal, and it was! Ed is an excellent pilot, so welcoming and did a wonderful job of pointing out all of the sights for us. We would highly recommend Rotor One and a flight with Ed to anyone looking for a great experience. Thank you very much!

Brilliant experience with Ed

Bec & I had a wonderful flight over Melbourne and the coast with Ed.
This was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary and experience something new together.
The flight and the views were sensational. The helicopter and the ride were superbly comfortable, even with a few patches of rain and bumps.
Ed is an excellent pilot, so welcoming and did a wonderful job of pointing out all of the sights for us.
His passion and enthusiasm are really what made the experience as awesome as it was!

Loved It!

To celebrate a special birthday we thought a helicopter ride over Melbourne would be an unforgettable experience and it was! Ed is a fantastic pilot and made us feel at ease and was great at pointing out the landmarks of the city to help us get our bearings from a new perspective.

Wow! Amazing experience!

Our very first helicopter flight was just amazing. Ed was just brilliant. A pleasure to deal with, truly professional and made our flight on a slightly windy day so much smoother than expected. The views were incredible. Cannot recommend them enough. We will definitely be back for a another flight soon. Thank you for making my partners 30th birthday present an unforgettable experience.

The only way is up!

Sophia turned nine, the pleasure is mine.
I called on Ed with his big Red - LYO his name, he rides in skies.
From Essendon we took straight off to say hello from up, up high.
He showed us fields from brand new angles, skyscrapers, boats, even submarines!
The colours of the bathing boxes, iconic shelters on the beach;
all looked in order, and our pilot A-1.
Do see our pic of Flemington, where fillies gallop, prance and trot
It is its shape which is beguiling - we advocate you check it out
Nary a bump did we encounter as back to Hangar 7 we came;
Most pleased we said, we'd do it again!

Incredible Experience

This weekend we were lucky enough to fly over Melbourne with Ed in his beautiful red helicopter. It was the most incredible experience, the views were amazing and Ed is a great pilot (and photographer 😜). He patiently answered all of our questions and looked after us really well. Unforgettable!

Absolutely Breathtaking - Highly Recommend

Experiencing Melbourne’s great cityscape and coastline from above was something we had been longing to do, and we are so glad we chose Rotor One to make this finally happen. Ed took us on a magical, sun-drenched, late afternoon tour as we smoothly hovered over incredible parts of Melbourne we didn’t even know existed. Ed’s professionalism and caring nature made the whole experience so special, and we are so very grateful.

Incredible Experience

Bucket list item ticked off with the best. Ed is an incredibly professional down to earth operator who's sole goal is to create experiences outside of the box. From the behind the scenes look at how the chopper works , to an epic lunch at the winery, I was blown away. I'll be back for more!

Experience of a lifetime!

Before I met Ed, I had never been in a helicopter. The legend's passion for flying is unmatched! Because of this, Ed's attention to detail when it comes to safety and providing a first class experience is as good as it gets.

We got very lucky with the weather and flew over the bay and around the CBD and shared great conversation and banter along the way. The views were stunning and reminded me how beautiful Melbourne is. Ed even flew over my house!

Highly recommend this experience! YouTube video placeholder
Perfect way to enjoy lunch at Mitchelton

Effortless journey out of the city and into the beautiful vistas of the Victorian countryside to arrive in VIP style for a memorable lunch at the iconic Mitchelton Winery.

Rotor One Chief Pilot, Ed, is a great host and ensured the experience was enjoyable, safe and exceeded expectations.

Look forward to getting amongst the other adventures & experiences Rotor One are planning to offer into the future.

Relaxed flight to a beautiful winery

We booked a helicopter flight to Stones of the Yarra Valley and it was an incredible experience. From the moment we stepped into the helicopter we felt at ease. The flight to the Yarra Valley was both stunning and relaxing. Stones was a beautiful winery and the three course menu was delicious. 10/10. Will be coming again on our next anniversary, or hopefully sooner! Thank you Rotor One for the incredible experience.

Darryl Davies (Victoria, Australia)
Breathtaking and unforgettable experience. I highly recommend Rotor One

Incredible flight and the winery was excellent. I will never forgot the flight back over Melbourne. The scenary was epic over the cityscape! Our pilot, Ed was a pleasure in every way and he actually made our VIP experience so much better.

There is a downside to this though, I don't think I'll ever be able to drive to a winery ever again..! Heli-wine is the future.

My final thoughts - do it.! Treat yourself and I'm sure, like me, you won't regret a single thing.

Thank you Rotor One...!

Fantastic Ride out to a Winery

Our Pilot Ed took us out for a fantastic afternoon trip to Clyde Park Estate for a great winery lunch. The helicopter ride was awesome and our winery lunch was fantastic. We arranged to arrive a bit later and had the place almost to ourselves. Our Pilot Ed was also a great host. Looking forward to going again.

Helicopter Tour over Melbourne's Landmarks

Had a great helicopter tour with Ed and Rotor One! Flying over Melbourne CBD, the Brighton beach boxes and wineries in the Yarra Valley was awesome. I'd highly recommend a helicopter ride with Rotor One to give you a new perspective on Melbourne.

Fascinating Flight over Melbourne and surrounds

Absolutely Amazing hour up over the Melbourne skies with Capt. Ed (Smooth) Taylor. It was fascinating to fly past Melbourne's CBD, Brighton Beach, Rickett's Point, Yarra Valley and the Dandenong ranges. Melbourne's beauty from up in the sky is Unique and "Rotor One" are the folks to make this happen, Thank You Ed for that really awesome flight 🚁
