Helicopter Proposal & Engagement Packages
We’ve designed the most romantic proposal ideas and best proposal locations by helicopter in Melbourne. Each helicopter proposal package is designed to be private and romantic, allowing you to create a unique moment for your engagement that you’ll remember for the rest of your lives.
What are the most romantic ways to propose by helicopter?
The 5 best ways to propose by helicopter are:
- Propose in a helicopter over Melbourne
- Take a private helicopter ride at Sunrise
- "Will You Marry Me?" sign visible from the air
- Winery proposal with 5-course lunch & wine
- Private charter to the 12 Apostles
Our classic engagement package with a proposal before, after or even in-flight during your scenic helicopter ride
Treat your partner to a scenic helicopter flight over Melbourne and experience all of Melbourne’s famous landmarks and attractions from above. Soar over Melbourne CBD and then fly low and slow over Melbourne’s beaches taking in the sights of St Kilda Pier, Elwood Beach, the Brighton Beaches Boxes and Sandringham Marina.
As you’re flying over the iconic Brighton Beach Boxes in your private helicopter there’ll be no better moment to pop the question. Combine your special moment with our video package and receive a HD video capturing the moment you propose and the moment you place the ring on her finger, and all with crystal-clear audio recorded directly from the headsets in the helicopter.
After your helicopter lands and you’re back on the ground at Essendon, our hangar has amazing views of the Melbourne City skyline in the background allowing you to take stunning photos together with the helicopter and allowing your partner show off that amazing ring! Also, to reduce any suspicion of what you’re planning, let us know if you’d like us to send you both a fake email saying you’ve “Won a free helicopter ride over Melbourne!” to make this even more of a surprise!
A unique proposal package with breath-taking views of the city and the chance to see hot air balloons at sunrise
Our Melbourne at Sunrise helicopter flights are a spectacular experience allowing you to fly over Melbourne and the beaches just as the sun is rising over Melbourne!
Very similar to a hot air balloon ride but without the 4:00 AM departure time, helicopter proposal flights at sunrise are in high demand as the morning sun delivers spectacular lighting for amazing photos of Melbourne CBD, Luna Park, the Brighton Beach Boxes and the MCG. The early time of day also means there are often hot air balloons flying over the city which makes this flight unique, romantic and one of the best ways to propose in Melbourne.
After your dreamy sunrise flight has landed and you're both still on cloud nine, your Pilot will leave you in private next to the helicopter with nothing but the crisp morning air, the sound of birds waking up around you and amazing outdoor views of the sun-soaked, Melbourne City skyline in the background. This creates the the perfect moment for you to get down on one knee and make an amazing proposal that is guaranteed to be even more magical than your sunrise flight.
Please note: Melbourne at Sunrise flights are shared and anyone can book 1, 2 or 3 seats in the helicopter. If you’d like to reserve a sunrise flight privately and just for the two of you, please purchase 3 seats and the flight will automatically switch to a private experience (All other flights from Rotor One are already private and the booking of all seats is not required).
Our exclusive proposal package with a giant, 30-metre long sign on the ground that will leave her speechless
At the right moment your Pilot will mention a code word when you're approaching the secret location, giving you enough time to reach in to your pocket and ask your partner to look out the window and down to the ground. She’s guaranteed to be left speechless when she reads the words out aloud and turns back to see you holding a ring in your hand and smiling back at her. This is a once-in-a-lifetime engagement that unfolds 1,000 feet in the air and is one of the most romantic and creative ways to propose in Melbourne.
Special Add-On: A Professional Photographer for a 25 minute Photoshoot to capture your special moment
We partner with TwinLeaf Weddings, a professional wedding and engagement photography company in Melbourne to capture your special moment on camera. They specialise in proposal photos and have experience shooting newly-engaged couples at our hangar, with the helicopter and city skyline in view. Their team is highly experienced and intimately familiar with our proposal locations including our hangar at Essendon Airport and our winery locations across the Yarra Valley.
They'll capture amazing shots of your proposal as it happens, or if you've already proposed mid-flight, they'll direct your photoshoot to capture all the best angles in front of the helicopter in a private 25 minute photoshoot for you and your partner-to-be.
Afterwards, they'll carefully select the best shots from your special day, enhance them using their post-production process and share them in your very own online digital album ready... The perfect way to capture the first day of the rest of your lives.
If you're curious about the photos they capture, feel free to take a look at our collection of Helicopter Proposal Photos.
A romantic engagement package with helicopter flights, lunch at a winery and a private proposal setting in a beautiful vineyard.
Be whisked away on a private helicopter flight to one of the best proposal spots in the Yarra Valley. Experience a private landing at a beautiful winery for a romantic lunch date with your partner. As you arrive you’ll be greeted by winery staff and escorted to a secret spot for you to take your partner’s hand and ask for his (or her) hand in marriage.
Your private setting will serve as a romantic backdrop for your engagement and will be beautifully arranged for you ahead of time. Your proposal setting will include two comfy chairs, a bottle of Levantine Hill champagne, a beautiful bouquet of flowers to commemorate the occasion and magical views out of the Yarra Valley. This is a truly magical engagement moment in a romantic location that is just for the two of you to share.
After your special proposal moment together, take a relaxing walk through the vineyard to the restaurant where your table will be ready to serve your three, five or seven course meal with matching wines. When you book our professional photography package, enjoy a 30 minute photoshoot in front of your helicopter at the best proposal spot Melbourne has to offer.
If you’d like to surprise your partner even more, our winery proposal packages can be extended to include a group booking for lunch, allowing family and friends to be waiting at the winery restaurant to congratulate you both and celebrate your very special proposal over an amazing lunch menu.
Propose at the Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean Road - The most impressive and romantic landmark outside Melbourne including return helicopter flights, gourmet picnic hamper and the best view in Australia.
The most amazing proposal deserves the most amazing destination that Melbourne and Victoria have to offer - The 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road.
Arrange a helicopter ride to the 12 Apostles & Great View Ocean Road and fly in a private helicopter to Victoria's famous shipwreck coast for spectacular views of the giant limestones stacks and rugged coastline, the perfect backdrop for a once-in-a-lifetime engagement proposal.
As you make a private landing at the 12 Apostles Helipad, you'll be given a gourmet lunch hamper and given directions for special walk down the famous Gibson Steps to the beach below the cliffs... The perfect viewing area to appreciate the size of these famous landmarks and the perfect backdrop for your special moment.
As you find a perfect spot on the beach, you can ask your partner to gaze into the distance out over the ocean while you grab the engagement ring, drop to one knee and ask your partner to marry you.
The ultimate moment that will start your next exciting chapter together, followed by a glass of champagne and another amazing scenic flight back to Melbourne in your private helicopter. An engagement story truly doesn’t get any more magical than this.
