Are you craving adventure but don’t quite know where to start? Don’t feel bad, it’s a common condition – and, lucky for you, Pterodactyl Helicopters has the perfect cure for that particular ailment.
If you feel like you could do with some high-powered fun to shake out the cobwebs, so to speak, you might want to check out our Adrenalin Experiences aka the ultimate thrill seekers’ treat.
Let’s play that game, you know the one: Would you rather…fly in a helicopter or ride shotgun in a V8 racer?
Tough call, we know, which is why Pterodactyl Helicopters has decided that – just this once – it’s totally okay to cheat. So don’t choose, there is no need; you can have both in one neat package.
We proudly present to you: the Helicopter V8 Experience.
This action-packed day out includes a thrilling helicopter ride from our Lake Manchester hangar straight to one of Queensland’s finest race tracks, where we will suit you up, strap you in and send you out on the laps of a lifetime with our tame racing driver (no, not the Stig…but close).
This is the perfect outing for anyone with the need for speed – and the absolutely best gift ever if you have a lovely rev-head friend, you can even go along for the helicopter ride with them and watch the look on their faces first hand when they emerge from the V8. Priceless stuff, indeed.
On the off chance that flying high and racing hard is not quite enough adventure for one day, allow us to up the ante.
Instead of the ‘plain old’ Helicopter V8 Experience, try this one on for size: the Helicopter V8 Warbird Experience.
Now, the part about helicoptering to the race track and taking a few outrageous laps remains the same (because why should one change such a winning formula) BUT this package comes with the added bonus of simulated aerial combat.
Yes, you read correctly.
You and a mate each get your own YAK 52 (and a pilot obviously) and set off on a truly insane aviation experience as you reenact some of the most iconic airborne battle moves, pioneered and made famous by the high-flying skirmishes between the American Kittyhawk and Japan’s Zero fighter planes. We are talking dives, vertical climbs, chases and even some smoke thrown in when a hit is scored.
In short, you get to be part of a dogfight in the air that’s at times spookily realistic – and terminally thrilling at all times.
If you want to get your heart-rate up this autumn, contact Pterodactyl Helicopters today and book yourself and a friend in for the best day ever – we look forward to terrifying you soon.
