It’s getting chilly, the woolen socks are making appearances…perhaps there is even a bathrobe in the picture. All around us people are curling up with blankets, good books and steaming cups. Cosy, yes; but also, insufferably dull. If you want to turn up the heat this winter, sign up with Pterodactyl Helicopters for one of our scorching hot Adrenalin Experiences.
Our selection of high-powered shenanigans is a thrill seekers most exciting dream come true – whether you fancy skimming over raging waters in a low flying chopper, always wanted to race in a V8 supercar, or want to live your ultimate wartime pilot reenactment fantasy – Pterodactyl Helicopters can make it happen – NOW.
#1 Helicopter V8 Experience – All your big boy (and girl) toys in one tidy package
Time to strap yourself in for the ride of a lifetime. Pterodactyl Helicopter has taken the two best things…in the world, basically, and made them into a day out that will leave every revhead worth their salt giddy with glee (being giddy can be macho, we promise). This day out includes helicopter transfer from our Lake Manchester Hangar to the Queensland Raceway for a couple of epic laps in the skilled company of our very own racecar driver – and a flight back. If you have any stomach left at the end of your laps, we’ll even throw in some low flying, if you ask very nicely.
Speaking of flying low…you may want to check this out also:
#2 Low Level Helicopter Adventure – or Whitewater Rafting is for Beginners
Heading out into the scenic wild from our Kholo base, Pterodactyl Helicopters takes you on a heart-stopping ride along the trusty old Brisbane River…which you will be pleased to find has about as many sharp turns as a top-notch rollercoaster. We offer the Fernvale Run, approximately 25 minutes of low flying madness; and the Wivenhoe Run, almost a whole hour of non-stop adrenalin rush.
Of course, if water is not your friend and you feel the need to get some extra kicks up high…
This outstanding adventure is basically an extension of #1 aka the regular Helicopter V8 Experience. The difference – and it is a substantial difference indeed – is that in between riding a chopper and riding shotgun in a V8 car, you get to reenact the iconic dogfights between the American P40 Kittyhawk and the Japanese Zero Fighter Planes. Holy mackerel, we hear you say? You betcha, holy mackerel.
You, a mate, two YAK52s, loops, evasive maneuvers and even some smoke when you get hit – if this does not blow your mind, we’re sorry, you have no mind to blow.
