Industry experience with local knowledge

As a locally owned business, you are dealing directly with us... Our heart and passion for showcasing Sydney (and it’s magnificent surrounds) can’t be outdone. Read more here on the Company profile page.

Worlds’ first multi-camera high definition 16 x 9 filming of your actual flight...

Show

As with all the camera systems we have developed over the years, We are always striving to lift the bar... Our latest system can’t be surpassed as we are now offering (and are the only company in the World to do so) switchable multi-camera High Definition 16 x 9 filming of your actual flight (complete with pilot narration, choreographed stereo music (using top of the line Bose A20 headsets) & Pilot/Air Traffic Control interaction). The film of your flight can be taken home on USB ($70) with you straight after the flight.

With our first system, custom built in 1999, we are the leaders in onboard (real-time edit) Helicam in Australia. Blue Sky pioneered the original broadcast quality Helicam systems, now we’ve perfected it. Not one of our competitors can offer anything close to the the above system...Just Blue Sky!

A last word about price, aircraft & choosing the right helicopter company...

Show

Blue Sky Helicopters has maintained an outstanding record of safety since our inception in 1996. We are a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Certified Air Carrier.

We have noticed a few companies advertising on the net that are operating in association (or under) other companies AOC’s (Air Operating Certificate). We strongly recommend that you only fly with a long established company (such as ours) that has it’s own AOC and company owned aircraft. Issued by CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority), this permission allows aviation companies to conduct commercial activities under the Civil Aviation Act. You can conduct an AOC search here on the CASA website.

We don’t always claim to offer the cheapest scenic flights/tours but we are one of the the best at it (quality and cheap are not usually in the same sentence, especially in aviation!)... Our reputation in the industry speaks volumes.

Our aircraft of choice are the Bell 206 Longranger & the R44 type helicopters which both have the best safety records in their class. Couple that with our pilots who have years of experience & you’re in great hands! Read more on the Company Profile page...

Blue Sky Helicopters Pty Ltd is a fully certified Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) accredited Air Operator. Air Operating Certificate (AOC) number: S551971
