Ipswich Motorway Upgrade Helicopter Flight

Dinmore to Goodna Project

This is one of the largest and most complex road projects ever undertaken in Queensland. It is very hard to see what is happening behind the barriers at ground level but from the air in one of our helicopters, you can see everything.

With an informed running commentary from our helicopter pilot, Captain Mike, you will fly over the construction for 8km from the Dinmore interchange to the Logan Motorway interchange. You will get an excellent aerial view of the new road alignment and how traffic is moved to facilitate construction while still maintaining the traffic flow and reducing the impact to motorists and local residents alike.

Helicopter flights depart either from the Ipswich helipad or from our Lake Manchester Flight Hanger. Bookings are essential for us to schedule our helicopters.

All prices include GST for the hire of the helicopter and pilot for up to 2 passengers per flight in the Bell 47 helicopter or up to 3 passengers per flight in the R44 helicopter.

The R44 helicopter carries up to 3 passengers per flight with a maximum single passenger weight of 130 kg and a total passenger per flight weight of 250 kg.

*The R44 helicopter price is based on the helicopter being based at the Lake Manchester Flight Hanger rather than the Chambers Flat Flight Hanger. We can schedule helicopter flights so that the aircraft will be left at the Lake Manchester flight hanger from a previous job.
