A friend of mine was given a helicopter ride as a gift and I was fortunate to be invited along. We took off from Mascot airport and enjoyed watching the domestic and international runways in action. Though we didn't get anywhere near the big birds it was an awesome way to start the trip. Then out to the coast and... More

When you pay 150$ for a 20 min flight, you at least expect to view something that you paid for, not just the ocean. Empty ocean. Be carefull if you book this flight because if you seat in the back seats you'll see barely nothing. I understand that I can't see everyhting, but at least the pilot should go on... More

We did the Sydney Harbour and Coastal 20 Min Scenic Helicopter Private Flight for 2 and it was outstanding! Couldn't recommend this more highly! Erin was great to deal with and our pilot gave us terrific commentary and answered all our questions. We chose this over doing the bridge climb and certainly have no regrets.

Born in Sydney and travelled the world - this Christmas we decided to stay home, but visit Sydney and do all the touristy things we would normally do when you are overseas. So we went on a Helicopter ride over Sydney. The trip left Mascot travelled out to Maroubra, then up the coast to the Heads - into the Harbour... More

Wow what an amazing experience, a wonderful day to fly over our beautiful City of Sydney and its beaches. Bondi helicopters were extremely friendly and professional which made our experience very enjoyable. Well worth doing.

We booked the experience through heliexperiences as part of a Redballoon package. The helicopter terminal was at Mascot, very near to the Blu Emu long term airport parking. On arrival at the terminal, you head upstairs to a landing and ring a buzzer for entry. We were ushered to a waiting room near to the entrance and it was explained... More

I received a helicopter tour booked through heliexperiences. Arrived on time. The helicopter was delayed significantly. There was no communication. When I finally asked if the helicopter would be going, I was told there was a delay, but for no specific reason. Other passengers were accommodated before me. I had to leave because I had tickets for another event that... More

Hello… All the hardworking pilots at Bondi Helicopters are committed and required by law to safe operations. As we depart and operate around Sydney Airport which is one of the busiest airports in the southern hemisphere, we do encounter sometimes long delays from air traffic control , we are under their direct supervision in controlled airspace and we are given...

This experience was probably the best possible way you can see Sydney. As someone that's grown up in Sydney I loved it, but equally as a tourist I can't think of a better way to appreciate the city. The company were efficient and professional, and our pilot was very nice. He pointed out main landmarks without giving alot of information,... More
