The Best Proposal Idea - A romantic helicopter ride with a unique 25-metre-long giant sign visible from the air

You’ve been together with your partner for a long time and now you want to ask them to marry you! Taking this big next step can be nerve-wracking and you want to make this experience as memorable as you can. A moment and a memory that is so special that you will one day share the story with your grandkids. A proposal idea that involves the two of you, a helicopter and a giant sign is guaranteed to leave your partner speechless.

How does your surprise proposal flight begin?

You arrive at our hangar with your soon-to-be fiancé, for what they think is just a surprise helicopter ride around Melbourne. Upon arrival you’ll be greeted by one of our pilots who’ll walk through your flight path around the city and down the coast, followed by a short safety briefing before taking off on your scenic helicopter tour around Melbourne.

You’ll both enjoy spectacular views of Melbourne’s popular landmarks and tourist attractions including the MCG, Royal Botanic Gardens, Albert Park, St Kilda, Luna Park, the Brighton Beach Boxes and the MCG.

When is the best moment to propose?

As you fly down the coast past the Brighton Beach Boxes, your pilot will make a 180-degree turn over and around the Sunken J7 Submarine at Sandringham Marina and continue up the coast towards the city.

You will then receive the first secret radio call from the pilot letting you know you’re about 5 minutes away from the giant sign and your big moment. This will give you some time to calm your nerves and remember that romantic speech you’ve prepared to propose to your partner.

Your pilot will then share the second secret radio call as you approach the location of the giant sign placed on the coast, approximately 1 minute away. This will then be followed by a third and final secret radio call, when your helicopter is just about to pass overhead the giant sign, allowing you to ask your soon-to-be fiancé to look out the window. It’s at this point that they’ll see a giant “Will You Marry Me?” sign laid out on the ground and will suddenly turn to you, gasping and in complete shock, only to see you smiling and holding a ring in your hand…

After Your Partner Says "YES"!

Your helicopter will orbit overhead so your fiancé has time to take a photo or video of the giant sign that’s been placed on the coast just for them. Your helicopter flight will then continue past the city with panoramic views of the city skyline, giving the perfect opportunity to take photos and videos of their gorgeous ring with the city in the background. We understand that you might be nervous when organising your wedding proposal because you want to ensure every little detail is taken care of to perfection. 

Our team will help you coordinate the entire process from the moment you walk into the hangar, to the moment you leave engaged, so all you have to do is remember what you want to say when your perfect moment to propose arrives. Your engagement proposal is a unique memory that you will carry for a lifetime which is why we’ve designed the ultimate proposal idea in Melbourne, just for you ❤️

An exhilarating one hour experience

I had planned to propose my girlfriend and came across this ultimate idea of proposing with a banner in a helicopter. I must say it was one of the best ones for both my gf and I as it was also our first ride in a helicopter. The team made sure we have an amazing time and also coordinated with me for the proposal. The whole experience Was surreal. The view, narration about the views , the banner everything was superb. My girlfriend said yes btw incase you were wondering… Thank you for this exhilarating experience Rotor one!

The Perfect Day

OMG! What an unbelievably perfect experience it was to fly over Melbourne and surprise my partner with a proposal.

It could not have been any better and worth every cent!

I would like to thank Ed for making it such an unforgettable experience as he is the exact person you want helping plan

your special day.

BEST PROPOSAL IDEA IN TOWN!!!

The entire ride & the banner was just mesmerising! But the main reason we had a blast was because Ed made sure everything happened on the right time in the best way possible. He was the most comforting when it came to our questions & planning the entire thing precisely. We were given so much time & space to click enough pictures we needed. Experiences like these make such days unforgettable & Rotor One made our proposal day PERFECT!!

Epic Helicopter Proposal

From first communication to last, Rotor One have been absolutely outstanding; going the extra mile to make both my partners and my special day (Engagement) one of the most memorable times in our lives.

I called a number of providers but ultimately went with Rotor One after having great chats with Eddie, who was clear, trustworthy and transparent. Eddie helped by walking me through the offerings for my engagement, all the while keeping it a secret from my partner.

I opted for the engagement package which was very reasonably priced, it included 30+ minutes in the air, circling the outskirts of the city, the St Kilda and Brighton Beaches, back across the MCG / Tennis Arena and then across towards the beaches of Altona where his team had organised a 50+ ft banner which was sprawled across the land right near the beach. We did a couple of passes and I proposed to my partner who was in shock - all the while Eddie was able to keep me in the loop with timings and locations via radio signals; unbeknownst to my partner.

We landed back at hanger 7, where champagne and a photographer were also on the tarmac waiting for us.

It was a perfect day, one I will never forget - I couldn't recommend the team at Rotor One any higher and both my partner and I will be back for more tours soon!

Amazing Experience

We had experienced a really good flight, the views were stunning. Being this our first flight in a Helicopter I was expecting a hard flight but it was so smooth, Ed is such a good person and pilot, he is so friendly and professional and was too kind helping us with the proposal from the beginning to the end, I really appreciate it. We definitely want to go again and flight with him.

We'd highly recommend this experience.

Thanks again Ed!
