12min Brisbane Helicopter Ride


The whole city and more; in 12 minutes

This is our 12 minute flight. You will see the western side of the city as we fly along South Bank, Milton, Toowong and Mt Coot-tha before returning back to Archerfield. This is our second most popular option which offers beautiful views of the city; whilst our most popular 20 minute package flies two opposite direction orbits around the CBD for only $33.00pp extra for three people

Climbing initially to 1000ft (300m) above Brisbane, you will be heading straight for the city. You will see University of Queensland at St Lucia from above. We will then make a slight right deviation and head for South Bank where you will get up close and personal with the western side of our beautiful Brisbane City

In the distance you will be able to sight the majestic Glass House Mountains, Moreton Island and North Stradbroke. We will then continue towards Mt Coot-tha and finish our loop of the city by returning back to Archerfield

If you’re looking to fly for longer periods check out our Brisbane Helicopter Scenic – 20min flight option, as well as flights to Byron Bay and Sirromet Winery Lunch Tours

This tour is a total of 12min of actual flight time. This is known in the industry as collective time and is counted in decimal places (0.2 in our case). Some of our competitors do 12min tours but advertise at 20min. They count the startup and shutdown time as part of the experience; we feel this is not right. We publish our flight path below, so you know exactly what you are getting

Not only this, but all of our flights are private. This means that if you book a helicopter tour you will not be sharing the cabin with anyone else [but the pilot]

Experience Timeline

Bekaa Air operates flights from Archerfield Airport up to 7 days a week. Generally we operate when we have flights scheduled for that day and arrange rosters around those requirements. Flight’s depart during daylight hours

We utilise 2 lounges. First one; the more popular option is the Archerfield Terminal Building, which has been built in Art Deco Style and features floor to roof windows with a panoramic view of Archerfield’s main apron. This lounge is complimentary with a purchase of any Bekaa Air flight

Second option is our Qantas Imperial Airways Lounge at JetBase – Brisbane’s first hangar, ever. Tastefully decorated in memorabilia from early 20th century era, passengers enjoy an assortment of complimentary beverages and top class service. This service is available before and after the flight; with a flat rate of $90.00 per flight for any number of passengers

If you’re utilising our Qantas Imperial Airways lounge, you can arrive up to an hour prior your departure. Our flights are scheduled to commence safety briefing and boarding 10 minutes prior. Please note that sometimes we may have an other flight scheduled prior to yours and may still be in the air when you arrive

Prior to embarking upon your flight, you will be greeted by your personal pilot and run through a safety briefing. A few photos later, and once strapped in; the helicopter will be started, warmed up and systems will be checked. We will then fly the track shown below

During the flight you’re free to use your mobile phones, cameras and go-pros. As an optional extra you can purchase a recording as part of your flight

Upon landing, we will wait for the blades to stop prior to disembarking the helicopter. Passengers will have an other opportunity to take photos with the pilot and ask any questions

If you would like to reschedule your flight we ask that you do so with a 24 hour notice. Within this window our full refund policy applies

On the day if we deem the conditions to no longer be safe to fly, Bekaa Air customers can either reschedule to any other day or receive a 100% refund
