Think you've seen Brisbane? - Wait till you see it from 1000 feet from the M*A*S*H Helicopter! We give you and a friend a 25 minute ride in a Bell47 MASH helicopter around the city of Brisbane, Australia. All our passengers ride at the front - nobody else can do this! Two children ride for the price of one adult. Need to provide a gift for someone special? We can post you an attractive Gift Voucher.

OK, it just putters along, but I wish I'd worn my brown undies for this one! For the record, I'm afraid of heights! But... you know what? I'd gladly do this again!! Count me in!! Thanks for the ride, Andy!!

I surprised my partner for her 30th. It's was so freaking amazing. We zoomed around the sky in a bubble over Mt Cootha and the city we then went Rally-coptering over the airfield low and fast. We were grinning from ear to ear. Thanks Andy

I was shouted a helicopter ride for my 70th birthday.... what an experience. The pilot was so friendly and knowledgeable, the views were amazing and at no time did we feel unsafe (even though I was rather perturbed that there were no doors on the helicopter). A great experience and one I can now tick off my bucket list! Thanks

As a victim of Bjelke-Petersen's police state in the 70s, I've avoided Brisbane all my life. When my sister moved here recently I visited and was treated to the most amazing introduction to the city. Simply stunning. And I became an instant helicopter addict. Andy made it seem just so easy. Got some *great* photos, too.

Hi Russel, Thank you for your feedback. The difference between a photo taken through a large open door way compared to through perspex is dramatic isnt it. You should consider taking up aerial photography. I'm glad you really enjoyed the flight More

The pilot Andy was very nice and I had a really good time, since I was alone, I was matched with a customer who was also alone, Andy picked me up from the train. You really get 20 minute air time, even 22 maybe, really good value for money. This is the best helicopter ride in Brisbane, also because of... More

Andy the pilot was very friendly and also funny, made us feel comfortable and safe throughout the flight. This is no normal helicopter flight, and one that will certainly give you lots of butterfly's!

I never flown in a helicopter before and the whole experience from start to end was so amazing. I felt free and excited. Andy was a great pilot, generous and very knowledgable. Would recommend this to anyone to do this spectacular tour with Andy in his Bell47

This was a great experience, from the pre-flight briefing where experienced pilot Andy was more than happy to answer our many questions about his pride and joy to the flight over UQ, the CBD and Mount Coot-tha we had a great time. Flying 'doors off' with only the perspex bubble between you and the view was amazing. You can't beat... More

Hi Kim, Thanks for your review - I've flown for other operators and they certainly short-change the customer on flight time. I hate to see that happen as it spoils the experience. I never do it and I am rewarded by customers who are always happy like you. Thanks for your review :) More
