Our most popular flight

We have adjusted the flightpath of this Brisbane Helicopter Flight to offer the most we can in 20min. This is why, you’re looking at the most popular Brisbane helicopter flight we offer

Your flight departs from Archerfield Airport. Whilst you wait for your departure time, you can absorb the views from the Archerfield Terminal Building. Decorated in original art-deco style with full glass overview windows, it is a great place to enjoy watching the planes take off and landing prior to your flight. Alternatively, why not spice up your flight by upgrading to our Business Lounge. It features free assortment of refreshments, premium seating and a lounge-room overlooking aircraft inside original Qantas Imperial Airways’ hangar.

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, flying around Mt Gravatt and then towards St Lucia University

Your pilot will then gain clearance to enter Brisbane CBD Airspace. Above the Gabba, you will be delighted by the views of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs and the Story Bridge. As we make a full orbit of the city, you will also see the views 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 make two orbits, one clockwise and one anticlockwise –

Next, we clear controlled airspace and fly past Mt Coot-tha. In the distance you can now see the majestic glasshouse mountains. We will then fly past the TV Towers. On the way back we will once again see Southbank and Westend from a different perspective

If you’re looking to fly for longer periods check out our Brisbane Helicopter Scenic – 45min flight option, if you looking for a more budget friendly flight, check out our 12min Brisbane Glimpses flight

This tour is a total of 20min of actual flight time. This is known in the industry as collective time and is counted in decimal places (just over 0.3 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]
