What to expect — Melbourne by helicopter with Rotor One:
If you've ever dreamt of flying over Melbourne from 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.
With your camera ready, Docklands and the Melbourne Star will come into view as your bank left towards Melbourne's Southbank. With amazing views of Station Pier, Albert Park and St Kilda on your right and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Rod Laver Arena and MCG on your left, you'll have a hard time choosing which way to point the camera!
As your helicopter returns to Essendon Airport and 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.
This helicopter ride was an amazing experience, our helicopter pilot Ed (Edward) was very nice and accommodating, an unforgettable experience, would definitely ride with them again
My wife had a wish to celebrate he 50th birthday on a food and wine tour in Provence France, but Covid put a stop to that. I needed to find something that would be equally memorable and the trip out to Levantine delivered in every way.
I can highly recommend this for that really special occasion
We had an incredible time and made our great family memories on our Rotor One chopper ride. The whole team was great, friendly and made us feel welcome. Ed was a genius pilot. Ed also took us to the camo helicopter for my boys to learn little more. He made our experience great and safe. Thanks for an unforgettable morning. My boys and I didn’t wanted to land, and we can’t wait to go back up again soon. I highly recommend this type of activities for any family looking for something another level during school holidays. Peace ✌🏽
Booked a helicopter ride for my husband's birthday to leventine Hill winery for lunch and it was perfect. The staff went above and beyond, including the pilot. We will be using Rotor One again very very soon!!
