Attention all was history buffs and aviation aficionados! Were you aware that the ultimate adventure – combining WWII history, aerobatics and (admittedly unrelated) V8 racing – has been at your fingertips for the longest time?
Part of our infamous Adrenalin Experience packages, the Helicopter V8 Warbird Experience is the ultimate day out for hard-core thrill seekers.
If you choose this outstanding offer, your day begins with an unforgettable ride in a chartered helicopter, transporting you and one lucky partner in crime from our Ipswich helipad to the Warbird operations base.
Yes, we know, it’s hard to believe that a tour in a private chopper could be the warm up to an even greater adventure – yet it is true, we promise.
Once you have safely landed at the Warbird operations base, there is just enough time to give your companion a crisp high-five before you part ways and take your places in separate aircrafts – and not just any aircraft, you will be flying in YAK 52s.
That’s right, YAK 52s. The very aerobatic dream machines designed to train Soviet fighter pilots in the art of aerial combat. Joyrides in these babies are not for the faint-hearted; the YAK 52s are built to do some seriously fancy stunts.
Of course, you are not going for a joyride…you are going to re-enact the iconic dogfights that went down between the American P40 Kittyhawks and the Japanese Zero fighter planes.
We are not talking about half-measures here.
Once you get in the air, you and your opponent will duke it out above the clouds with all your aircrafts have to offer.
There will be tail chases, there will be formations and – YES! – there will be smoke and perhaps a tailspin or two.
Pterodactyl Helicopters’ Warbird Experience is the most realistic aerial combat experience possible, short of actually going to war – and that wouldn’t be much fun now, would it.
Back on terra firma, we will permit you to catch your breath and perhaps have a glass of water; but then it’s onto the next sensational speed extravaganza.
Pterodactyl Helicopters will fly you from the Warbird operations base directly to the spiritual home of V8 racing enthusiasts, the Queensland Raceway, where you will strap in, hold on and have your mind blown.
Our tame racing driver – never mind the Stig, we’ve got our own – will take you for a couple of laps around the track at teeth-rattling speed; giving you a taste of real life V8 racing that will linger for a very long time. Possibly forever.
So, are you ready to embark on a day out for the history books? Contact us today to book yourself and your favourite adventure buddy in for the extreme speed experience of a lifetime – because when it comes to Adrenalin Experiences, nothing beats Pterodactyl Helicopters.
