What to expect on your private Birthday or Anniversary Helicopter Experience in Melbourne

Arrive at our hangar on your special day for your private helicopter experience. Walk in and relax in our customer lounge while enjoying a glass of champagne with your partner.

Your pilot will then meet you at the customer lounge to take you on a tour of our hangar. You'll learn about our operation at Essendon Airport including our flight training school, our different types of aircraft and the physics and aerodynamics behind how helicopters create fly. You'll have the opportunity to ask your Pilot anything from what it takes to become a Pilot, to how much it costs to own and operate a helicopter.

You and your partner will then walk out onto the tarmac for photos with your helicopter and the Melbourne City skyline in the background. We'll take photos with your phone both outside and inside the helicopter to create a unique memory for your birthday or anniversary. You're also likely to spot rescue helicopters from the Police Airwing and Air Ambulance divisions, and even private jets as they lift off from the tarmac in the background.

You'll then board the helicopter to prepare for the main part of your birthday or anniversary experience, your scenic helicopter flight around Melbourne. Your pilot will bring your helicopter into a hover over the helipad before taking off towards  Melbourne CBD. You'll cruise over Melbourne at 1,500ft  (approx. 500m above the ground) while enjoying spectacular aerial views of popular landmarks including Flemington Racecourse, Melbourne Star, Eureka Tower, Albert Park Lake, Shrine of Remembrance and the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). 

If you choose the 30-minute scenic flight option, your pilot will fly around the city and then cruise low and slow down the coast of Port Phillip Bay. You'll spot the famous boardwalk and pier at St Kilda, see people on the rides at Luna Park, get a good view of the seaside mansions in Brighton and spot the iconic Brighton Beach Boxes from the air. Your pilot will then make an exciting 180-degree turn at a 45-degree angle over Sandringham Marina, giving you the opportunity to get a perfect view of the hidden Submarine from WW1 before flying back along the coast.

Your entire flight will be captured in full HD video and include the audio recorded via everyone's headset, so you'll be able to relive the experience over and over again. Once you're back on the ground, you'll also receive a personalised souvenir to take home with you (we'll keep this a surprise for them on the day).

You'll also receive $350 worth of gift vouchers that can be used by you or given to friends and family for a scenic flight, a winery tour and “You Fly The Helicopter” experience as a special thank you for allowing Rotor One to celebrate this special occasion with you and your partner.

This birthday and anniversary helicopter ride is guaranteed to leave your partner full of excitement and gratitude that they've chosen to spend their life with you. From your welcome drink on arrival to your personalised souvenir after the flight, this will be a truly special experience that you and your partner will remember for a lifetime.

      Couples Birthday & Anniversary Experience over Melbourne with Rotor One

      Amazing experience… my mom dad loved this anniversary package helicopter ride…worth every penny

      Scenic Melbourne CBD & Coastal helicopter tour

      Booked the Scenic Melbourne CBD & Coastal helicopter tour for my partner’s birthday. It was such a wonderful, positive and beautiful experience. As someone terrified of being in the air myself, the pilot’s incredibly confident and positive attitude made the tour genuinely enjoyable, being able to focus wholly on the experience. It had even motivated my partner to learn to fly himself someday soon. Undoubtedly, we will be back again one day!

      Perfect birthday present

      I organised a surprise flight for my golden oldies for my dads 80th birthday. Booking process was very easy, reminders were great and instructions on what to expect on the day fantastic.
      Jason (pilot) was great. We thought he might have a challenge with my mum on his hands but she didn't chicken out and she was so glad she didn't. My parents had a wonderful flight, Jason was very informative on the various landmarks they were flying over with a bit of the good old Irish humour thrown in.
      I am not a person that leaves reviews but felt i had to after our experience. Highly recommend booking a flight with these guys. I think my golden oldies will be talking about this for a long time to come .
      Thanks for looking after them.
      Wendy, Ian and Emily,
