So much more than just a helicopter company
Looking to do something extraordinary?
Since 2008, Pterodactyl Helicopters has been partnering with the best local cafes, wineries, restaurants, pubs, breweries and accommodation places in the scenic rim of southeast Queensland to put together a selection of once-in-a-lifetime helicopter tours where getting there is half the fun.
Whether it’s making a jaw-dropping entrance by helicopter at an event or wedding, getting the adrenalin pumping with a low-level river run joy flight, visiting local wineries in style or taking on an authentic Aussie pub-crawl by chopper, the experienced team at Pterodactyl Helicopters is at your service.
We offer a variety of day or overnight tours by helicopter which you can browse from our Helicopter Flights & Tours page. But the adventure doesn’t end there! If you want to create your own joy flight experience or have a specific tour destination in mind, we can help with that too.
For memories that will last a lifetime, come fly with us.

Why fly with Pterodactyl Helicopters?
Hi Capt. Mike, Johey, Kelly and Jesse - Claire and I would like to thank you all for your great hospitality today and for the fabulous day you helped contribute towards. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are exhausted now from all the excitement. We hope to be able to do another trip with you later on in the year.- Lena RydellMt OmmaneyLunch Tours - Winery or Resort in 2018
Please thank Kelly for giving us coffee while we waited for Capt. Mike (ha ha, loved telling you off for being late, mwaaah, don't you hate old bitches, Mike) and thanks for your hospitality when we came back. We loved ear bashing you guys. We hope all goes well with Jesse's new baby (he will of course be too tired to fly once the bundle of joy arrives). Loved discussing New Zealand with you, Johey, as well.
Mike, hope your hand heals quickly and you are back in control soon.
What a blast we have had today! Thanks so much to you all once again, looking forward to receiving the photos after a fantastic day. Kindest regards and dare I say love to you all.
The best program for any young boy. The team are fantastic and this is an unforgettable experience.- Michelle HunterBrisbaneJunior Aviator Program in 2017
