Why fly with Pterodactyl Helicopters?
I organised a scenic flight for my son-in-law at the time, who is a quadriplegic, Captain Mike was absolutely wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble or effort for him, he made the rather hard task of taking someone with such a disability so smooth and effortless. Bless you Captain Mike. Don't hesitate to call and ask Captain Mike, he is a very nice man and will not hesitate to help all he can.- Lorraine Cavanagh BrisbaneHelicopter joy flights in 2015
My husband's 60th birthday became a celebration he will never forget when Mike from Pterodactyl Helicopters became the coordinator of an event which included a ride for Wayne and his daughters from home, by Ipswich Trike Tours, out to Lake Manchester; a helicopter flight out to Ironbark Winery for a wine tasting and on to Woodlands of Marburg for a luncheon with friends and family; a cake which Mike organised and a Mansion tour as well. Damian, our pilot for the day arrived after lunch and flew myself, Wayne and Michelle on to, two more Wineries, Flinders Peak and Paradine where wonderful hosts that made our tasting experience relaxed and fun. On our return to Lake Manchester, Steve from Ipswich Trike Tours was there to take us home with an extra historical tour of Ipswich thrown in for good measure. An added bonus for both Wayne and myself was the ride from Lake Manchester to Queens Park for our Grandchildren on the Trike. Our whole Family just couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces and all because of the Super effort of Mike and his staff. Sincerely, thank you all!- Yvonne BilesBrisbane and IpswichHelicopter wine tours in 2017
