Surprise Proposal Flight over Melbourne
Arman Qureshi (Victoria, Australia)
Surprise Romantic Proposal by Helicopter in Melbourne

I recently had the most incredible experience of my life with Rotor One Melbourne, and it was all thanks to the exceptional service provided by our pilot, Ed! From start to finish, every moment was filled with joy, excitement, and unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.
To celebrate a special occasion, I decided to propose to my fiancé with a proposal package in a helicopter ride, and it turned out to be the perfect choice. Rotor One Melbourne not only offered a breathtaking aerial adventure but also ensured that every detail was taken care of to make this momentous occasion truly magical.
Ed, our pilot, played an instrumental role in making this experience smooth and memorable. Right from the beginning, he greeted us with a warm smile, instantly putting us at ease. His friendly and professional demeanor made us feel comfortable throughout the entire journey. Ed's extensive knowledge about the city and its landmarks added an extra layer of excitement to the ride as he shared fascinating stories and pointed out notable sights along the way.
The helicopter ride itself was nothing short of spectacular. As we soared through the skies above Melbourne, we were treated to breathtaking views of the city's iconic skyline, shimmering waters, and picturesque landscapes. The sensation of flying was exhilarating, and the bird's-eye perspective offered a unique and awe-inspiring experience. It was as if we had stepped into a different world altogether.
What truly stood out was Ed's genuine enthusiasm and his dedication to ensuring our comfort and enjoyment, all while keeping the surprise for my fiancé intact. He went above and beyond to create an atmosphere of romance and celebration, ensuring that every detail was taken care of. The helicopter was immaculate and well-maintained, guaranteeing a safe and comfortable journey.
The highlight, of course, was the unforgettable proposal moment. Ed orchestrated it with impeccable timing, creating an ambiance of pure romance and surprise. With the stunning cityscape as our backdrop, overlooking the charming beach boxes, the love and joy in the air were palpable. It was a truly magical moment that we will cherish forever.
I cannot recommend Rotor One Melbourne and Ed enough. The level of professionalism, friendliness, and attention to detail exceeded all expectations. Whether you're looking for a thrilling adventure, a unique way to celebrate a special occasion, or simply an opportunity to see Melbourne from a new perspective, Rotor One Melbourne is the place to go.
Thank you, Ed, for making our helicopter ride an experience of a lifetime. Your expertise and genuine passion for what you do truly made all the difference. Rotor One Melbourne has earned our highest praise, and we cannot wait to return for another incredible journey in the future!

Couples Experience by Helicopter in Melbourne

I booked helicopter ride on my hubby’s birthday. It was an amazing experience, my husband loved a lot. Ed and his team is very welcoming and make you feel comfortable while you ride so that you can enjoy the view.
We are glad that we booked it with Rotor one. Keep up the good work guys.

An amazing experience by helicopter from Melbourne to 12 Apostles

It was an amazing experience. I called Ed one day before the tour. He arranged an extra helicopter to us. We leaved our hotel at 9.00 am, landed at 11.00am at 12 Apostles, had an amazing run on the beach, landed at 13.40 at the winery and having a great lunch. Finaly we catch the 17.30 Sydney flight from Melbourne. Wow, that was a very special day!!! Especially thx to pilots who were not only highly skilled but was extraemely personable and accommodated. Thanks Ed again your service, I warmly recommend to everybody !!!😎🍷🚁

Melbourne City, Beaches & Coastal Adventure
Adrian Reincke (Victoria, Australia)
Fantastic Flight over Melbourne and Beaches

Fantastic way to see melbourne from the air. From the Westgate bridge to the beaches and back over the MCG. Great views of the City and the suburbs. Rotor One were very responsive and flexible which made this a great experience. My wife and I would recommend this to those who live in melbourne and tourists alike to view our city.

#1 experience to do in Melbourne

I’ve lived nearly 6 years in Melbourne and can confidently say that was the best experience I’ve done. Ed took amazing care of us, made the experience personal and enjoyable, and just wish I could keep doing it again and again. Would recommend it to anyone and will make sure to do this with any family members that visit. Absolutely world class

Levantine Hill
Rawle Watson-Jones (Victoria, Australia)
Yarra Valley Helicopter Winery Tour to Levantine Hill

If you like getting high – the good stuff is cooked up by Ed and his team at Rotor One.
I am addicted.
If you like looking down on others – do it Rotor One style – head, shoulders and feet above the rest!
If you need help staying up – I recommend Rotor One for long lasting memories.
There’s a new way to get around. 4 wheels was so last season. Once you go ROTOR you can’t go back to motor!
My flight with Ed and Mitch was a blast. They were so chill, friendly and competent. They didn’t get in a flap when we were late. They even colour synced the helicopter with my outfit!
Stretch hummers are no longer cool. There’s only one way to arrive. Ditch the motor for a Rotor.

Co-Pilot Birthday Experience Gift for Kids
Sheila Bocian (Victoria, Australia)
Amazing experience from start to finish.

Amazing experience from start to finish. Booking was a breeze, communication was excellent, Ed made every minute special for my son (who was flying as "co-pilot" for his 6th birthday), explaining how helicopters fly, what we were seeing on the ground and letting him turn the helicopter off. The helicopter is very comfortable, visibility was great from the back seat too (where I was). And the video of our flight was the cherry at the top: a memory to share with family overseas and to cherish forever. Highly recommend and I'll definitely come back for the birthday experience with my youngest son. Thank you, Rotor One!

12 Apostles by Helicopter

Ed and the entire Rotor One team were so lovely and professional throughout the entire time.

Expectations were definitely exceeded, my partner and I had an experience that we will cherish for a lifetime.

Thanks Rotor One for providing both of us with some amazing memories.

I highly recommend Rotor One to everyone out there. 👍

An amazing, fast and comfortable experience

We had an amazing flight from Melbourne to 12 Apostles. Ed is a very competent and friendly pilot. We had a very safe flight. I think the best way to view the 12 apostles is from a helicopter. The tour is really worth it.

The way he welcomed us with champagne and helping us taken heaps of photos. An experience which we highly recommended to anyone. Thanks Ed,

Winery Proposal in Yarra Valley at Levantine Hill

Helicopter Winery Proposal in Yarra Valley

This was an experience of a lifetime! Ed was a super nice throughout the whole experience and was a very safe pilot! I highly recommend this for anyone that is planning a helicopter ride or a secret proposal package (which is what I did)!

12 Apostles by Helicopter from Melbourne (Great Ocean Road)
Deborah Phillips (British Columbia, Canada)
Absolutely wonderful.

Had a wonderful trip with Ed. Met all our expectations. Had plenty of time at the 12 Apostles along with lunch at a local winery. Would highly recommend Rotor One with Ed.

The quickest and most exciting way to visit the 12 apostles

We can highly recommend rotor 1 for the perfect way to visit the 12 apostles and lunch at a winery on the way back. Michael and Ed made us feel very secure and explained so much about what we were seeing from the air. They are one of only 3 Melbourne companies with permission to land at 12 apostles visitor centre. Whole experience very professional and relaxed. Whilst it’s not for everyone’s budget I felt as a once in a lifetime experience it was worth every dollar. It’s the only way to avoid a 12-13 hour day trip by mini bus. Lunch booked at Jack rabbit vineyard with private helipad was also excellent and good value for money. We will be thinking about this perfect day for a long time to come. It was really beyond our budget but not as bad as in Europe for a such a long distance. Weather was perfect for us I don’t think they can fix the weather every time!

Yarra valley

Highly recommend. Ed was great and the ride to Hubert Estate was spectacular. The wine tasting and lunch were excellent. On the way back Ed took us over the city and out over the harbor where we got a birds eye view of our cruise ship. A tour not to be missed.
