What to expect — Melbourne by helicopter with Rotor One
If you've ever dreamt of flying over Melbourne from the comfort of a helicopter, now is your chance. Arrive at our hangar and relax with a drink in our lounge while your pilot walks through your flight and answers any questions.
Walk out onto the tarmac for a few photos with your helicopter with the Melbourne City skyline in the background. Your pilot will provide a short safety briefing before you jump onboard the helicopter for your scenic flight.
You'll hear the chatter of air traffic control as your helicopter picks up into a hover at the helipad before taking off to 1,500 feet (450 metres) and cruising at 185 km/h for an orbit of Melbourne CBD. As the Melbourne Star, Docklands and Eureka Tower come into view you'll bank left towards the coast where the flight starts to get really exciting.
Your helicopter will descend to 500 feet (150 metres) above the ground to fly you low and slow down the coast of Port Phillip Bay. Pass over St Kilda Pier and famous St Kilda Boardwalk on your way to the iconic Brighton Beach Bathing Boxes in all their stunning colours before flying an orbit over the sunken Submarine from WW1 at Sandringham Marina.
Turn back towards Melbourne to fly the same amazing route from a different angle and this time with amazing views of Albert Park, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Rod Laver Arena and the MCG on your way back to the helipad at Essendon.
As your helicopter touches down we guarantee you'll be left with a smile on your face... This is what makes our day and is the reason we love what we do at Rotor One.
