      Bird's eye view of one of the most beautiful cities /harbours in the world - Sydney
      A big Thank you to Oskar, Sam, Matt and pilot Brandon for your excellent service - from booking to lift off and touch down! We absolutely loved this flight along the coastline, our great beaches, the beautiful harbour including Opera House, the Bridge and city. We would highly recommend to book the video option! The quality is fantastic and we can revisit every single moment of our flight whenever we want. Barbara and Arturo

      We enjoyed this tour with our two years old son. Everything was smooth from booking, getting there, tour itself and taking photos after landing. Our pilot, Oscar, was kind and accommodating. Highly recommend this trip

      A must do!
      Just do it! There's no pockets in shrouds. Absolutely fantastic experience with the doors off too. Never thought we'd be flying so low too. Harbour bridge, I felt like I could shout to the climbers. I wish 30 mins at work went that quick. Matt our pilot was great pointing out points of interest. Quite windy with the doors off and at first my eye lids flapped and thought it was a mistake but once over the city it was fine. Brilliant.

      Fabulous experience!
      Service from booking to end was friendly, professional and helpful. A smooth operation that ran on time. Our pilot Sacha was engaging and informative all along our route, and I’ve never experienced a softer landing. Our flight was from Sydney down to Bowral and back, stopping for a most enjoyable lunch at a winery, as part of a package. I can thoroughly recommend this company and experience.

      The only way to see Sydney!
      A impressive experience and I think the only way to see Sydney whether you are a local or tourist. Some truly amazing views of the the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and its beaches - particularly when the helicopter tilts as it circles a sight. The helicam records the whole experience which allows you to relive the experience.

      Excellent helicopter flight over Sydney
      One of the best experiences I've ever had. It's undoubtedly the best way to see Sydney Harbour and all the best beaches. I would highly recommend this experience. The ground crew and pilot gave excellent customer service a truly wonderful experience.

      Blown Away by Blue Mountain EcoTour!
      From start to finish the Blue Mountain Eco Tour was amazing! This was a private tour for just my wife and me. We began with a 45 minute Ariel tour of the Blue Mountains. It really was majestic, by air. Then we landed for part two of the tour, a three hour trip into the bush. Our guide concentrated on geology, ecology and protecting the wilderness. Your guide may be an aboriginal elder who will concentrate on ancient customs. It’s really luck of the draw. We ended up deep in the bush where we were surrounded by kangaroo in the wild. We ate a quick picnic lunch and headed back to the helicopter. The flight back to Sydney, included spectacular views of the coastline, harbor and city. This was our favorite tour in Sydney! It’s very very expensive! But this was our only trip to Australia ever, so I splurged! it’s well worth the money.

      Surprise birthday gift helicopter ride over Sydney!
      This fabulous ride was a surprise birthday gift from my stepson and his fiancé. It was a clear, sunny day and Alex, our pilot, made an extra turn over the Harbour bridge and the Opera house. Fantastic views over Sydney city, the northern beaches, the dramatic coastline, Bondi and the other beaches. Highly recommended!

      Incredible, Breathtaking and 100% professional service!
      This was one of the most incredible things I have ever done and have no hesitation in recommending Bluesky! From booking over the phone right through to after landing, Matt our pilot and the entire Bluesky team were just fantastic! I booked the Aerial Click 30 minute flight with doors off. The flight exceeded my expectations and our pilot Matt really made the experience. Matt shared his knowledge of many of the sites we flew over but he also went above and beyond to ensure we got the best pictures. A big shout out to Matt and I would highly recommend those booking to specifically ask for Matt as their pilot!

    We had a fantastic experience with Oscar (pilot) and Brandon (ground crew) on 5th August 2023. Professional, polite and friendly. We chose the HD cam footage as an added extra and I highly recommend doing this. The media is high quality.
    Recommend this company 110%. Thank you for giving us some great memories on our holiday!

    I booked a flight for a 60th birthday surprise for a friend and Blue Sky Helicopters were so easy to deal with from the booking of the trip to playing along with the surprise on the day. They really made the experience special and very memorable.

    My friend couldn’t wipe the smile off his face for the rest of the day. The helicopter was amazing and so was the pilot. All of the staff were friendly & helpful.

    Highly recommend AAA+++

    My wife and I flew in the morning and were lucky that we had perfect weather and great visability.
    Our pilot Matt ensured that both sides of the craft had Harbour bridge photo opportunities - if you have never been in a helicopter give it a go, it's very different to a plane.
    Would definitely recommend and do it again.

    This is a must do. This company has all the 5 Star reviews for a reason. They are very professional! They make you feel so safe. If you thought Sydney was beautiful on the ground you have to see it from the air. It gives you a while different perspective that you haven't seen before. Just beautiful!
