Though the weather was not that good, the crew from Bankstown Helicopters were very obliging! They found a way to take us out anyway, because it was my friends birthday. A wonderful experience, thanks to all of you!

We were lucky enough to get vouchers to do this and had an absolute ball. The hotel gave us the wrong bus no. (make sure you get the 905 from Bankstown Station if you go by public transport) and we got lost. We rang Bankstown Helicopters and they came and picked us up. They really looked after us and the flight was amazing. Everyone at Bankstown Helicopters were friendly and very professional.

We were given a safety briefing and then off we went. I can't describe how beautiful Sydney is from the air. Our pilot was fantastic! Very informative of what we were seeing and even took photos of us after the flight.

I would highly recommend this company to anyone. Extremely professional and very lovely staff.
We would definately do again, and pay full price for it.

A beautiful trip from Bankstown to city following Parramatta River. We had a good look at the Easter show then over the Harbour Bridge and out into the harbour. There was also a cruise ship at the international terminal. All we can say is WOW. Thank you to Ian our very professional pilot and the lovely weather on the day

Have you ever wanted to fly over the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Sydney Opera House?
Now here is your chance: Bankstown Helicopters: Scenic Flights in Sydney, (situated out at Bankstown Airport, in Sydney's West).
They offer a friendly yet reliable chance to do just that. Or, if you wish one, of their other scenic flights, refer also to their website:

http://www.bankstownhelicopters.com.au/bankstown/scenic-flights/scenic-flights.html

They plan the trip carefully right down to checking your weights to balance the machine properly, pre-flight safety briefing, and lets not forget the free coffee/ tea and biscuits prior to takeoff. Then into the sleek modern machine for takeoff.

Our trip was 36 minutes long and we flew over Olympic Park Homebush, Parramatta River, Cockatoo Island, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, then, almost out to the Sydney Heads and then back to the airfield again.
Even though we had headsets on to talk to the friendly pilot and each other we were all just STUNNED into silence: much too busy looking and snapping photos we had no chance to chatter – but we sure did all the way home in the car afterwards!
A BUZZ had by all!
Amazing and MUST do experience in Sydney! (As good as the helicopter ride over Manhattan, and TOTALLY worth the money!!)
NB. You will need to find your own way out to Bankstown Airport – but it is approx. 40 minutes car drive from downtown Sydney.

Ask for Sam………Sam is the Man!

(He is a very friendly careful considerate pilot).
