Picnic in Paradise – Dating Deluxe

Spring is here – and with it come perfect blue skies and balmy temperatures, ideal conditions to take your romantic sojourns outdoors. Parks, beaches and hillsides are beginning to team with lovebirds out for picnics, which is nice but not particularly extraordinary. If you feel it’s time to shake out the picnic rug and take your beloved out for a few hours of romantic bliss in true style, look no further.
Pterodactyl Helicopters offer a number of outings for that certain someone special that will leave any couple gazing at one another adoringly, punch-drunk on sun and adventure.


Island Getaway

At Pterodactyl Helicopters we have discovered the secret formula for the perfect date. This spring, treat you other half to an exclusive picnic experience, starting with transport in your private helicopter. Leaving from the outskirts of Brisbane or even directly from your house (provided there is sufficient landing space), Pterodactyl will fly your directly to one of the gorgeous secluded beaches of Stradbroke Island – allowing you to drink in one of South East Queensland’s most beguiling sceneries in perfect solitude.
And no, you don’t even have to make your own sandwiches – we will provide you with a gourmet picnic lunch (or brunch…or dinner) and a souvenir hamper to take home.
What are you waiting for? Spent a few hours marooned on a romantic desert island with your favourite person in the world – it’s a date neither of you will soon forget.


Total Indulgence Country Wine Tour

There’s nothing like some wine tasting in the lush Queensland countryside to greet the sunny season. This kind of simple yet sophisticated pleasure can only be improved by one thing: luxury transport by limousine and chartered helicopter.
Pterodactyl Helicopters’ Indulgence Country Wine Tour includes a limousine ride to your closest helipad, either directly from the airport or from your Brisbane or Gold Coast hotel; just to get your daytrip off to a classy start. From then on, it’s pure decadence, as you are flown from one winery to the next, taking in the scenery from a birds-eye perspective in between samples of the finest wines and foods the region has to offer.
Best off all, as the day tour is spaced over a leisurely eight hours, you can take your time and really savour all the treat this spectacular day out has to offer.


Sunset & Overnight

Yes, Pterodactyl Helicopters’ day trip options are amazing, but why stop as the day ends? When it comes to our Sunset & Overnight package, as the sun goes down – you go up!
Take in a the spectacular Brisbane sunset from up close and watch the city’s vibrant nightlife flicker into action below you as we fly you over the CBD and Southbank precinct at magic hour.

After your joyride you will be delivered directly to either the Quest Apartments of The Country Motel for a gourmet dinner and a night of luxury accommodation.

In fact, Pterodactyl Helicopters’ aptly named ‘Adrenalin Experiences’ can provide you with a wild ride that will make any fairground attraction blush with shame.
So, if you’re looking for a truly unforgettable experience to get that rush you love – Pterodactyl Helicopters has sourced the grandest sites of adventure around Brisbane, Ipswich, the Scenic Rim, Sommerset and Lockyer Valley.

Helicopter V8 Experience

This piston-pumping package is the perfect outing for racing enthusiasts, who don’t mind arriving rock star style. Flying directly from Pterodactyl Helicopters’ Lake Manchester hangar, you will be delivered to the infamous Queensland Raceway to burn some rubber with our licensed driver on the V8 track.

Whether you bring along a fellow racing enthusiast to share the experience or fly in your observer as an entourage to witness your awesomeness, the Helicopter V8 experience is guaranteed to knock your socks right off.

Helicopter V8 Warbird Experience

What could be more awesome than being flown by your private, state of the art helicopter to take in some laps on one of Queensland’s most iconic racetracks? I know what you’re thinking. Surely nothing could beat that?
Think again!
Pterodactyl Helicopters has concocted the ultimate thrill potion – the recipe for adventure of such epic proportions you’re sure to remember it forever.
In addition to the ‘regular’ Helicopter V8 experience, you and a friend will participate in simulated air combat.
Yes, you read correctly. You and a mate, both in YAK52s, facing off in the sky!
The air battle simulation involves aerobatics, flying in formation…the lot.
And then you get to ride along in a V8.
Just as the cherry on your adrenalin sundae.

The Ultimate Aviation Experience

At Pterodactyl Helicopters we understand that not everyone is into V8s – we get it. So for the adrenalin junkies who would like to treat themselves to a day of adventure set purely in the air, the Ultimate Aviation Experience is just the ticket.
This package pairs the simulated air battle, re-enacting air combat between the American P40 Kittyhawk and the Japanese Zero fighter planes with a grand finale: a tandem parachute jump at Ripcord Skydivers!

Spend a day experiencing all the extremes aviation has to offer; from your leisurely transit in your private helicopter (or not so leisurely, if you fancy some low flying…), to a real-life dogfight in the sky, to a leap into the great blue yonder!

These are just a few of the intense experiences at your fingertips when you choose Pterodactyl Helicopters as your partners in adventure. Check out our rates and full range of Adrenalin Experiences and get ready to rumble – because when it comes to high flying thrills only the real thing will do.
