Booked a trip with Pterodactyl Helicopters around Sydney Harbour with son (12) & daughter (18) and had a fantastic tour. Michael White piloted and was excellent - giving the pre-flight briefing, commentary during the flight and de-brief afterwards. Flight was 30 mins excluding briefings. Would highly recommend this tour!

WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!! I took my partner for his surprise birthday and he had an amazing time as did i. Michael was our very friendly and accomodating pilot. He definitely made our experience very enjoyable. We took the 40min scenic tour and it was a beautiful day. Managed to see a couple dolphins swimming as well! It's worth taking your go pro if you have one, otherwise, you can use there's and opt to pay for the images which they put on a on a USB stick. We had about 500 images! Overall, we had a fantastic experience. Thank you very much Michael and Pterodactyl helicopters.

We travelled with Mick in late June 2019. Flight was a little delayed due to fog in the early morning, but that's something totally expected where I come from! But that said, Mick sent us an email pretty early in the day advising of the delay and our new flight time. We arrived a little early for our flight and Mick was just finishing with the previous flight, but still welcomed us into his office to wait for a few minutes. When ready, Mike sat us down talked through the flight, the safety requirements, and we were ready to go. My wife if a nervous flyer, and Mick was extra smooth to make sure she didn't feel concerned. He explained that around the airport with wind going between the buildings that it might be a little bumpy, but once up and away we'd be fine. He was totally right. The flight..... AMAZING. We headed over towards Parramatta, then followed the river right down to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and flew over the south pylon. You can wave to the people climbing the bridge - we saw three groups climbing. Out of the harbour, and up the coast saw some spectacular scenery that you just don't normally see. Back into the harbour, over the opera house and bridge again and then back to the airport via Olympic park. As people who've been to Sydney many many time (my wife grew up there), we loved the trip. It was very smooth, Mick was quite informative and the views are something we won't forget in a long time. Mick even has a Go-Pro camera set up in the front of the chopper! I'd highly recommend this to anyone. This was a birthday present for my wife (Mick even wished her a happy birthday!) and I'll be in the good books for some time (and I loved it too!).

All the process to book the Helicopter ride was easy and smooth. Michael is an experienced professional that loves what he does and makes sure that the passengers are safe and enjoy the experience. The 40 min option is awesome because you get to see city views, harbour bridge and opera house plus the beaches. Time flies and a shorter tour would be over too quickly. We highly recommend to book this tour, especially in a sunny day, it’s a unique and very special experience.
