Summary

Ultimate Brisbane Experience

Ultimate Brisbane Experience

Your flight departs from Archerfield Airport. After a safety briefing, we will strap in and start-up the aircraft. Climbing initially to 1000ft (300m) above Brisbane, we will be heading towards the east.

As we fly all the way to the coast, there you will be able to seek out marine-life in crystal clear waters and catch glimpses of the Moreton and Stradbroke Islands. As we near Wellington Point, we will start tracking back towards Mt Gravatt and St Lucia University

Your pilot will then gain clearance to fly around the CBD. You will be delighted by the views of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs and the Story Bridge. As we continue our turn, you will also be able to look back towards the south. On a clear day you can almost see as far as the Gold Coast. To make sure that everyone gets a turn to see the beautiful sights, from all angles, we will request a further orbit in the opposite direction

Next, we will clear controlled airspace and fly past Mt Coot-tha. In the distance you will be able to see the majestic Glass House Mountains. We will then make a turn around the Mt Coot-tha Lookout and start flying back towards St Lucia University. On the way back we will once again see South Bank and West End from a different perspective

FAQ

FAQ

Do you have operating hours?

Our scenic flights usually run between 8:30 – 16:30 with some exceptions. The only special flight is our sunset tour which has it’s own time-slot each day

What are the age/height/weight restrictions?

Whilst there is no laws restricting us to a certain age; passenger safety and taking care of you, our customers is always our number one priority. This is why we have made the decision to set the minimum age at 3. Infants who are younger are still developing their neck muscles. In the event of turbulence which is minor nuisance to adults can lead to whiplash in infants. Adult sized headsets fit poorly over their heads which can also lead to hearing damage. The flight can also be sometimes frighting for them, which can take away from the experience. Best leave them at home with a baby sitter and enjoy the helicopter flight

There are no height restrictions

In our R44RII helicopter which most flights are based on the maximum seat limit is 136kg and maximum payload is around 270kg

Our Bell LongRanger seats up to 6 and doesn’t have a per seat limit

What is your cancellation policy?

We are proud to have one of the best cancellation policies in the industry

All of our tours & scenics are private flights, and as such our cancellation and reschedule policies are a lot less restrictive than what you would find elsewhere. 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

In case you can no longer make your flight on the day and would like to cancel your flight, a $100.00 cancellation fee gets deducted from the total refund amount

On the day if 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. If the weather is marginal (aka safe to fly but degrades the experience, eg when it’s raining) we can offer full refund or to reschedule your flight to an other day

We try to strike a balance between the very competitive nature of flight operations, looking after our staff, as well as making sure that you have the most flexible policy that we can offer

About your flight

About your flight

Where does this tour start?

Our helicopter tours depart from Archerfield Airport in Brisbane – Our exact location

Can we use our phones?

Yes. Unlike a commercial jet, your phones do not need to be turned to airplane mode. Nor do we charge extra for this

Will we be sitting next to someone?

This is what makes our approach unique. All of our tours, including the scenic flights – are private. This means that when you book your flight for two people, we will not sell the remaining seat to anyone else. Whilst this inadvertently means we sell fewer flights, the intimate nature of our tours is a signature touch of everything that we do

Please note that the prices are based off per flight basis. The per person pricing is based on full aircraft (3 passenger seats are fully occupied)

Can we talk during the flight?

Yes. All of our aircraft are equipped with the best Noise cancelling headsets by Bose. They are crystal clear and cancel out a significant portion of the outside noise. Your pilot will also provide commentary and let you talk between each other

COVID 19 Update – We disinfect our headsets before each flight, and the microphone muffs have all been removed
