This is something you have to do. The views are amazing. The pilots are great not only at flying but pointing out all the things you can do in Sydney and given you some historical background. Even if you don't like flying you have to take this amazing opportunity. Thanks again Chris

Gracious to receive a 30 minute charter tour around Sydney - shared with family. In short, just amazing! Felt totally at ease flying over Sydney taking in the most stunning views of the Harbour & Bridge, City skyline, Sydney Heads and the picturesque beaches/coastline which were just glistening. Service of the Blue Sky team was personalised, high quality and clear... More

First time in a chopper. Glad I did this and would recommend it to everyone as it was such a nice way to see Sydney harbour and the eastern beaches. The staff were great and professional.

The highlight of our trip to Sydney. So glad we did this. Charter your own helicopter for 20mins. Great to see the whole of Sydney from the sky. The pilot was great too. Very informative along the trip. Easy to get to at the airport. Polite staff too. Just beware that the trip is subject to weather conditions so leave... More

Tour was cancelled due to the weather but we were offered an alternative time the following day to fit in with us being at the airport. This was then delayed because of airspace being closed due to a PM visit but the guys went out of their way to ensure we got our heli-tour and still made it on time... More

We had walked many of the coastal paths and seen the usual sights, The Bridge, The Opera House etc but this was a fantastic way to see them.

This was fabulous and well worth the money. The four of us flew around the rugged coastline and took in the scenery of the blue mountains, the various beaches (Manly, Bondi and Rose Bay to name a few) before flying out to the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Very professional and well run although I'd recommend a taxi to... More
