Taking A Helicopter Tour Of Sydney In Winter

22 Jun Taking A Helicopter Tour Of Sydney In Winter

The winter in Sydney can be an excellent time of year to explore this multicultural and vibrant city so that you can explore all that is on offer without getting too hot. There is so much to see and do in the city that it is sometimes hard to fit everything in on a single trip. One way that you can get a unique perspective on a lot of the landmarks that you might want to see such as the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge is to see them from the air. A ride in a helicopter will allow you to take in a lot of the sights so that you can see as much as you can of this fascinating city.

Finding A Tour


You can quickly find many companies that offer a Sydney helicopter tour by using the internet, as there are plenty of operators offering this service. Many of the tours are very similar, and you can also usually create a custom tour to take in all of the things that you want to see. You will need to check the prices out of all of the companies in questions, and then start to do some research on them.


Checking Their Credentials

It is important that you make sure that the credentials of all of the potential tour companies that you are looking at are genuine and up to date. You can quickly check with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority website if a company is accredited and licensed as they need to be by law. If a company has all of the necessary certificates and licenses, then it is worthwhile putting them on your shortlist.

Asking Questions

When you have a shortlist of companies to choose from, you will then need to ask them questions to get as much information as you can about their service. Explain your requirements to them and get them to quote you for the tour that you want. You will need to find out if the helicopter will have open doors or not, as during winter it can get frigid when flying at altitude. Ask about what will happen if there is inclement weather and if there are any backup plans or alternatives available. It is also worthwhile taking a look at the insurance coverage in the event of an accident, as the coverage offered can vary quite drastically between the different tour operators.


Choosing Your Tour

Now that you have done your research and you are armed with all of the facts, you can choose the best tour that will suit your needs while also making sure that you are using the services of a licensed and reputable company. When you book your tour, make sure that you take on board the advice given from the company so that you can your enjoyment from the trip. Also, make sure that you take a camera so that you can capture some of those spectacular images that will remain fond memories for the rest of your life.a

    Oh I like that you gave me tips about researching and finding the tour even before talking about the tour. I wouldn’t even think about helicopters having their doors open or not as I”d assume they were closed so that in itself is a great tip. Thanks!

    This is such sound advice! So . many people only look at prices and go with the cheapest. If you are doing anything with risk involved I’m a huge believer in doing your research first! Looks like an amazing trip!

    I love helicopter flights. It is so close to flying like a bird as opposed to aeroplanes. It is a great way to get panoramic views of a place. I think this is a great way to see the Sydney landmarks and skyline in a thrilling manner.

    Adding up about tour helicopter. Something due to the small number of passengers a helicopter holds compared to a fixed-wing aircraft, the tour will feel more private and personal especially as you can chat with the pilot. I like your post by the way.
