See what our customers say about our famous TIF flight…!
I would highly recommend the helicopter introductory flight. After a short briefing from the friendly staff you are in the helicopter and in the air and gradually take control. The staff obviously love their jobs and ensure you have a really awesome flight. 10 out of 10.
What a hoot. Very professional. The pilot was interested in making my experience the best it could be. So good to have control of a helicopter for a little while.
My partner took the helicopter lesson and was totally surprised by the amount of hands on experience he received. He is now actually considering taking lessons. Thanks you so much
The crew and staff on the day were superb and very friendly making the whole experience fantastic. The flying itself was simply amazing and I am already making plans to start some kind of formal training. Great day and organised very well, thank you.
Well worth it. So much fun.
I really loved it. Easier than I thought it’d be. I did some research beforehand with some youtube videos and stuff on the howstuffworks.com website which gave me familiarity with helicopter controls. I’d recommend this experience to anyone. I got to do turns, use all the controls and do descents and ascents.
Unbelievable! Adrenalin plus! I actually got to fly a helicopter, hover and sightsee, all in 30 mins! best gift ever!
Enjoyed the training flight and was allowed early on the flight controls, although hovering above ground takes some practice. Overall an enjoyable experience.
I had an absolute ball on the chopper flight and was really impressed with the instructor and the level to which I was encouraged to fly the aircraft. V2 offers an amazing range of experiences and the website is easy to use, the team very helpful (even though we got rained out the first time we booked and one of us forgot to register their voucher!) All in all, this was a great value-for-money experience and made it really easy for my wife to get me exactly what I wanted as a gift. Thanks!
I recommend this experience to everyone!! For a small additional cost a longer flight with some very exciting flying is worth every cent! The pilot also made the whole experience a blast! Very safe and very much a great experience!!
From the time I walked through the doors my name was used before I even introduced myself. I was introduced to my instructor and offered extra time in the air for a price that I couldn’t refuse. From here it was straight to the helicopter and up into the air and this was where the learning and instructions began on what to do and how everything worked so there was no instructional briefing prior to taking off (this may be because of the extra air time and learning while in the air). Within 5 mins from been in the air I had taken control with instructor Ken only helping when required. I was fortunate that the course we took actually flew over where I live and the family could wave out to me. The views are amazing down to the Gold Coast and up to the Glass House Mountians although at times you are concentrating so much you don’t notice it. Would recommend this experience to everyone.
An incredible experience and loads of fun. Would be very happy to do this again. After 30 minutes of training and covering the safety aspects the adventure began. We took off and when we were at a safe altitude I took control of the helicopter and we flew across Brisbane to the coast. All too soon it was time to return. My instructor/pilot took control of the helicopter for the landing and it was a safe and gentle end to a magnificent trip. A must do experience.
Before the flight I decided to extend the flight time and range (to Redland Bay). It was worth the money!! I managed to relax in the flight back to enjoy the sensation of the agility of the helicopter and amazing scenery. A worthwhile experience.
