Every major metropolis around the world has that one iconic landmark everyone has seen no matter where they live. The statue of liberty, the Eiffel Tower, the giant Jesus in Rio de Janeiro… basically all the places that get blown up in space alien invasion movies.
When the world thinks of urban Australia, the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge immediately come to mind; they are stylish, timeless and simply beautiful to behold – especially from above.
If you think you’ve seen the opera house and the harbour bridge so often that you can’t possibly appreciate them any more than you already do – think again. Pterodactyl Helicopters have a flying city tour that allows you to see the highlights of the harbour like you’ve never seen them before.
It is true, Sydney supplies our pilots with enough visual knock-outs to fill several hours worth of helicopter sightseeing; but it is their expert knowledge of the localities and their exceptional skill when it comes to getting you to the best vantage points that makes our scenic tour truly special.
Pterodactyl Helicopters has recently acquired a Robinson R44 Raven II (you may have read about this in one or two of our previous news posts…we were very excited and still are, to be honest), a aircraft uniquely suited for sightseeing.
Small and light enough to get low and close to stunning vistas, almost motionless when hovering, not to mention fully airconditioned…the R44 will give you a 5-Star experience; and, if you are feeling brave, we can even take the doors off for you so nothing will obstruct your view.
Pterodactyl Helicopters offers 30-minute and 60-minute scenic flights of Sydney harbour and the surrounding highlights for up to three passengers per flight. Our half-hour tour starts from just $140 per person – but there is nothing budget about the prime helicoptering experience that awaits you when you fly with Pterodactyl.
All our scenic helicopter tours include the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and Botanical Gardens, as well as the suburbs of Chiswick, Hunters’ Hill and Balmain.
The extended tour, lasting a full hour, takes you along the coastline to feast your eyes on Sydney Heads, Manly and Long Reef.
A word of warning though: No matter how long you choose to spend in the air, Pterodactyl Helicopters’ scenic tours are guaranteed to leave you longing for more – exploring beautiful Sydney in such style is simply too much fun.
If you feel like you need a little extra adventure and want to gain a completely fresh perspective on Sydney and its world-famous landmarks, there’s never been an easier and better way to do so. Contact Pterodactyl Helicopters today and book a scenic tour that you’ll remember forever.
We look forward to flying with you soon!
