This product is only available to RedBalloon customers
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! This is the perfect adventure for up to four people to explore the full military flight experience.
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.
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”.
