Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to strap yourself into one of the most exciting helicopters ever built: the jet powered McDonnell Douglas 500E. This is your chance to immerse yourself in a thrilling 20 minute 'doors off' military-style flight experience.
Immerse yourself in a cinematic style Black Ops helicopter experience high above Sydney. For the more adventurous this Black Ops flight is an adrenalin filled doors off mission, where your experienced pilot will manoeuvre the military grade helicopter at an impressive 130 knots (240 kph) over Sydney!
Suit up for a preflight briefing where you’ll also be fitted out in a flight helmet with a personal GoPro attached, capturing not only your mission experience but the full walk up and action around the aircraft prior to departure. Note: If your head is too big for the flight helmet we will supply you with a headset and handheld (tethered) GoPro instead!
After the flight mission, the footage will be downloaded onto a USB for you to keep as a memento of your time spent in the “500”.
In an Australian first, this is no ordinary helicopter flight, you will experience the legendary aircraft made famous in so many feature films including Apocalypse Now, The Italian Job & Mission Impossible. So adrenalin-inducing it should come with a health warning...
