Why fly with Pterodactyl Helicopters?

We traveled to Australia from the United States to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. I had always wanted to land in a winery in a helicopter and my husband made my dream come true by booking a special day with Pterodactyl Helicopters as an anniversary gift. And, with the help of the planning from Captain Mike....the day was more than we could have ever imagined. We went to THREE wineries!! We had an absolutely delicious lunch overlooking the most beautiful scenery after a wine tasting complete with a bottle of wine. I had emailed Capt. Mike several times and he knew my husband liked wine tasting, but he really loved to go to a brewery for a tasting most of all. And, after the incredible day visiting wineries, with the help of Captain Mike's creative planning, we ended the day at a local Australian pub. The day was so amazing from start to finish!! Every single moment was filled with memories that I will never forget. And, as an added bonus?? Captain Mike had a GO PRO on the front of the helicopter and we had a remote control to take the most amazing photos! And, throughout the day he took candid shots of us. He uploaded every single one and sent us a link to download the photos. We now not only have incredible memories of our day, but we also have incredible photos to never forget it. We will always be thankful we chose this as a wonderful anniversary celebration on our trip to beautiful Australia. And, to see the beauty of this country from a helicopter is awesome! We are so glad we chose this amazing company that goes above and beyond!! We feel like we made a genuine friend that day spent with Captain Mike. Pterodactyl Helicopters not only met, but by far exceeded our expectations!

I took my partner on a helicopter tour with Mike from Pterodactyl helicopters and we were both blown away. The tour exceeded all of our expectations and Mike was a great pilot/host. We highly recommend going on a helicopter tour with Mike!!!
