Why fly with Pterodactyl Helicopters?

Lynne had a fantastic day, on her 71st Birthday, riding in a Helicopter, she has always wanted to fly in one, where I made her dream come true. The flight over Wivenhoe Dam and Lake Manchester and the surrounding countryside was awesome, and more spectacular than she could of imagined from the air, and a trip that will last a lifetime.
Thank you Capt. Mike you were awesome, and would like to travel with you again, and a thank you to you and Johey for being perfect hosts on the day.

Our children organised a helicopter flight to and from Sirromet winery for my husbands 70th birthday. We were treated like celebrities. Collected from Mt Cotton where one son lives, driven to the helipad, flown to the winery, given a lovely lunch with our family, then flown back to the helipad and driven back to Mt Cotton.
The staff of the helicopter company were the nicest people. So friendly that we felt like we had known them for years. Thank you for making Johns 70th birthday so special. We will be recommending your company to all we meet.
