Overview - Helicopter Proposal Package in Melbourne with a Giant "Will You Marry Me" Sign

Make the ultimate statement with a mid-air helicopter proposal, including a romantic helicopter flight over Melbourne with a 30-metre-long giant “Will You Marry Me?” sign laid out along the coast for your partner to see from the helicopter.

This is the most unique and romantic proposal package in Melbourne and is an act that your partner would never even believe is possible... until she’s sitting in the helicopter, staring down at your giant “Will You Marry Me?” and looking over to you with a ring in your hand.

This proposal package includes an extended scenic helicopter ride, a giant sign that is easily visible from the air, and an in-flight video recording with a special camera setup to capture the moment you propose.

You can also choose to add a professional photoshoot with the helicopter to capture photos of you both as a newly-engaged coupe, and even include a private landing at Jack Rabbit, one of the most spectacular wineries outside Melbourne, for a celebratory lunch with view of the Melbourne city skyline in the background.

This is a unique proposal package that you can’t find anywhere else and is exclusive to Rotor One.

The Best Proposal Idea — A romantic helicopter ride with a unique 30 metre long banner 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 kids. 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 you'll 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, 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 partner has time to take a photo or video of the giant sign that’s been laid out 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 a photo 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 ❤️

Our team will set up your giant 30-metre-long sign in a special location along Melbourne’s coastline before the flight that will read “Will You Marry Me?” and is clearly visible from the helicopter. Your pilot will orbit over the sign so you have plenty of time to grab a photo or video of this bold and romantic gesture after you've popped the question.

This will be a video you treasure for the rest of your lives.

4) Secret radio calls from your pilot

Your pilot will announce a number of secret radio calls during your flight that will let you know how far away from the proposal spot you are, to calm those nerves and give you time to prepare. Your pilot will ensure the experience remains a complete surprise from the moment you arrive to the moment you propose.
