Why fly with Pterodactyl Helicopters?

My husband's 60th birthday became a celebration he will never forget when Mike from Pterodactyl Helicopters became the coordinator of an event which included a ride for Wayne and his daughters from home, by Ipswich Trike Tours, out to Lake Manchester; a helicopter flight out to Ironbark Winery for a wine tasting and on to Woodlands of Marburg for a luncheon with friends and family; a cake which Mike organised and a Mansion tour as well. Damian, our pilot for the day arrived after lunch and flew myself, Wayne and Michelle on to, two more Wineries, Flinders Peak and Paradine where wonderful hosts that made our tasting experience relaxed and fun. On our return to Lake Manchester, Steve from Ipswich Trike Tours was there to take us home with an extra historical tour of Ipswich thrown in for good measure. An added bonus for both Wayne and myself was the ride from Lake Manchester to Queens Park for our Grandchildren on the Trike. Our whole Family just couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces and all because of the Super effort of Mike and his staff. Sincerely, thank you all!

Lynne had a fantastic day, on her 71st Birthday, riding in a Helicopter, she has always wanted to fly in one, where I made her dream come true. The flight over Wivenhoe Dam and Lake Manchester and the surrounding countryside was awesome, and more spectacular than she could of imagined from the air, and a trip that will last a lifetime. Thank you Capt. Mike you were awesome, and would like to travel with you again, and a thank you to you and Johey for being perfect hosts on the day.
