Impress your partner with a Pterodactyl Helicopters flight and wine tour, or fly to an intimate lunch at Spicers Hidden Vale or Woodlands of Marburg.

Group Experiences

Get a group together and combine any number of experiences, from helicopter rides to paintball or parachuting to dog fights in a Warbird. Climb the Storey Bridge, race in a Super-Hot race-prepared V8, or drive an 800HP drag car.

Pterodactyl Helicopters can put together the perfect joy flights package for any number of people, to suit you and your budget. Why do just one, when you can do the bloody lot?

Joy Rides

If you just want a taste of what it is like to fly in a helicopter then take a low-cost joy ride.

We operate helicopter joy flights at various shows and trade events throughout the year.

Pterodactyl Helicopters along with the National Paintball Fields offers a helicopter joy flight as part of paintball packages and events. At present all flights can be taken from one of our standard landing sites or even your back yard.

We also do short flights from the Lake Manchester Hanger if we don’t have an event that suits.

Check out the calendar on this page to see where we will be next, or follow us on Facebook.

Junior Aviator Program

This program is especially for kids who have a passion for aircraft, helicopters and flying, and would like to get some hands-on experience preparing the helicopter and includes quite a bit of flying!

Charter

Like all chopper companies we do general charter from anywhere to anywhere. Call us with the details of your proposed flight and we will give you a price.

Aerial Work

Pterodactyl Helicopters specialises in a variety of helicopter aerial work services in and around Ipswich as well as the Lockyer Valley and Brisbane.
