So much more than just a helicopter company

Since 2008, Pterodactyl Helicopters has been partnering with the best local cafes, wineries, restaurants, pubs, breweries, and accommodation places in southeast Queensland and Brisbane to put together a selection of once-in-a-lifetime helicopter tours and scenic flights, where getting there is half the fun.
Whether it’s making a jaw-dropping entrance by helicopter at an event or wedding, getting the adrenalin pumping with a low-level river run joy flight, visiting local wineries in style or taking on an authentic Aussie pub-crawl by chopper, the experienced team at Pterodactyl Helicopters is at your service.
We offer a variety of day or overnight tours by helicopter which you can browse from our Discover Ipswich page. But the adventure doesn’t end there! If you want to create your own joy flight experience or have a specific tour destination in mind, we can help with that too.
For memories that will last a lifetime, come fly with us.

Why fly with Pterodactyl Helicopters?
What a wonderful day we had with Pterodactyl Helicopters on Sunday 11th November 2018 after winning a pub crawl by helicopter to 4 country pubs.
Our Pilot for the day was Damien, what a great guy he was.
He was the perfect host and really looked after us, making our day. He explained the country side to us.
We felt very comfortable with him.
Thank you very much Damien.
We would also thank you Captain Mike and Wynnum Leagues Club.

Oh my goodness, greatest helicopter company ever!- AmyBrisbaneWedding Helicopter Transfers in 2015
Captain Mike was so amazing during the whole planning phase, truly making me feel super special arranging a mega mega stretched Limo with champagne (citycoastlimo) - not to mention all the emails leading up to the big day making me feel famous - to pick my 3 bridesmaids, my mother and myself with a massive wedding dress (talking 4kg massive) on to then take us to the helipad where there was...wait for it, not one but two helicopters (I'd only organised one and he never charge me any more). We were all in the air for at least 30 min.
Love you guys Pterodactyl Helicopters! Can't wait to meet again, this time with my husband for one of your pub crawls.
Thanks again Captain Mike you legend!
From the happiest bride ever Amy x
