Summer is approaching, so the time has come to get out of the city – even if it’s only for 48 hours. Just because your getaway from the daily drudge is a quickie, doesn’t meant it can’t be memorable after all. Pterodactyl Helicopters offers Fly In/ Drive Out Country Escapes that are simply ideal for a short holiday from the everyday. Let’s face it, there is no better way to start off your weekend away than a private helicopter transfer to the gorgeous South-East Queensland countryside. And best of all, you’ll still have your car on site to explore your destination at your leisure.
How does it work?
At Pterodactyl Helicopters we understand that while helicopters are the most spectacular mode of transport around, it is still handy to have a car when on vacation. And, yes, we know your car is unlikely to fit into our state of the art choppers.
You can get your car to the destination of your choice two ways: either we will drive it there for you or you can bribe a friend to do you this special favour – the bribe being a helicopter ride back home, trust us, this always works.
With your car safely on its way, we can provide you with pick-up from Brisbane Airport, City Hotels, Archerfield, the Ipswich CBD or our Lake Manchester hangar (that said, we are quite flexible and can probably work something out if you prefer a different pick-up location).
No matter where we collect you, once you are in the air, drinking in the scenery from the comfort of your private chartered helicopter, the great South-East is your oyster.
