What to expect on your Surprise Helicopter Proposal Flight over Sydney?

You and your partner will arrive at our hangar, the anticipation building for what she believes is a helicopter ride you won through our online giveaway. You'll be greeted by our staff and escorted to our customer lounge, where you'll unwind with a glass of champagne while we prepare the helicopter for your special moment.

Your Pilot will then provide a short safety briefing, and you'll be strapped in for take-off on your unforgettable flight over Sydney. As your helicopter is starting up, you'll hear the radio chatter from Sydney's Air Traffic Control in your Bose noise-canceling headsets as they manage the arrival of international passenger jets across Sydney's busy runways. Your pilot is a key player in the surprise, maintaining the secrecy throughout the tour.

Once the blades are spinning and your helicopter is ready for take-off, your Pilot will contact Air Traffic Control to request a taxi and take-off clearance for your scenic flight around Sydney Harbour. You'll be listening for the magic words "Cleared Harbour Bridge 5 Outbound," and before you know it, your helicopter will be lifting off towards Sydney's CBD.

From the moment you're airborne, the city skyline and Sydney's spectacular harbour will come into view. You'll fly past Sydney CBD with views of Martin Place and the bustling business district before flying over the historic Port of Botany Bay and navy warships at Sydney's naval base.

Your helicopter will fly an exciting orbit over Sydney Harbour at 1,000ft (330m) for you capture photos of some of Sydney's most spectacular landmarks including Taronga Zoo, Kirribilli House (The Prime Minister's Residence), Sydney Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay, and Sydney Opera House. 

Next, you'll head east over the beautiful Rose Bay and Watsons Bay on your way to Sydney Heads, where you'll be just moments away from the perfect moment to pop the question. As your helicopter descends to 500ft (150m) and heads towards Bondi Beach, your Pilot will make a secret radio call to let you know the coast is clear for you to pop the question... and from here, we leave the rest up to you 💍♥️
