When does the tour depart/arrive back?

The full day pub crawl starts at 9:30 and finishes at around 16:30. The half day tour starts at 11:30 and finishes at 16:30. We do try to be flexible so if you have a requirement to start at a different time you can request that and we do our best to accommodate. There is an optional start time field during the checkout process

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

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 Airbus AS350/H125 helicopter can seat 5 passengers without an individual weight limit

Our Industry leading cancelation policy

Perhaps a low bar to clear. Anyone who had a flight cancelled for any reason would have gone through the painful process of trying to get a refund. We did everything possible to make our cancelation policy one of the best. We are certain that you won’t find anywhere that offers a policy as transparent and flexible as ours

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

We do not offer refunds for no-shows or cancelations inside the 24 hour period

Gift Vouchers

Our gift vouchers are available at no extra cost and can be redeemed anytime within the 3 year validity period. You can also upgrade your flight or transfer the voucher to another person without any additional charges. These vouchers are processed by hand and will be emailed to you after you submit your purchase. You can find a sample of what the vouchers look like by visiting the provided link here

How long is each stop?

We account for about 45min per pub stop and 1.5hrs for lunch. Ultimately within the time-frame of the pub crawl, it’s up to you how long you would like to spend at each pub

Where does this tour start?

Our helicopter tours depart from Archerfield Airport in Brisbane. The Half Day Pub Crawl usually starts at 11:00/12:00, while the Full Day Pub Crawl usually starts at 9:30. It’s important to note that our tours are private and customizable, so if you have specific preferences for the start time or any other aspect of the tour, we’ll be happy to work with you to accommodate them. Our goal is to ensure that you have a memorable and enjoyable experience on your helicopter pub crawl, so please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any special requests

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 make less on each flight, we have made this decision so we ultimately provide a better experience for our customers

Intoxication Policy

Let’s get the most important question you have out of the way first, we want you to have fun do not limit our customers to one beer per venue. However – it should be noted that this is not an opportunity to get drunk at 2,000 feet. Safety is paramount, and so are the rules around aircraft boarding whilst intoxicated. Additionally we love and we baby our helicopters, we dedicate hours per aircraft each week just to clean and look after them. We don’t contract some detailing company to do this; we do it ourselves – every day we fly. Please keep this in mind when ordering one too many. It’s about the experience; one which you want to remember!
