John was absolutely amazing. Took a 20 minute ride over the weekend and it was amazing! John pointed out major attractions/sites and was a pleasure! Will definitely be booking with Premiair again!

What a wonderful thing to do! The flight with John was a gift and, while we were looking forward to it, the flight absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. John was fabulous and there is something very special about flying above the city you love and seeing if from such a different perspective! I really would highly recommend!! Thank you John!

Absolutely recommend PremiAir Helicopters for an amazing experience. John was a pleasure to work with and I have to commend how easy it was to communicate and book a time slot during an extremely busy weekend in Victoria. My father was visiting from overseas and hands down had the best experience.

If you’re wanting the best flight experience in Melbourne, look no further than this company. John is the perfect host and pilot I’ve come across. Everything from first booking to when we finished our flight was 10/10. Helicopter was top notch and beautifully maintained. Highly recommended!

I booked my gender reveal through the “Melbourne helicopter group” they have 3 reviews they are NOT REAL!! Complete scammers!!! and never got all my money back. They cancelled 2 days before my reveal. They don’t even own helicopters they scam money out of people. We’ll anyways I rang up Premiair helicopters I spoke to John Wotherspoon he was fully booked for a while he could see how upset I was that the other place cancelled on me. And Even tho John had other flights to do the day of my gender reveal he managed to squeeze my reveal of my baby in for me!! He’s never dropped powder out of a helicopter or done any gender reveals before but he made it happen for me and John did the most amazing job I could have ever asked for we are so so blessed and thankful for Premiair helicopters. John has the most kindest heart! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE PEOPLE AND DO NOT GO THROUGH “The Melbourne Helicopter Group” they are not a real place and will take your money!!! Thankyou John for saving my reveal❤️❤️❤️

Highly recommended! This is a ‘Gold Standard’ operation. I recently completed an aerial photography assignment north of Melbourne with PremiAir Helicopters. John had done his research and had everything organised for a what was tricky location bordering controlled air space. He was ably assisted by Lachlan and together they made the job easy and a very pleasurable experience as well. Many thanks guys. I look forward to working with you again.

Surprised my hubby for our 25th wedding anniversary with a 20 minute flight over the city. John was fantastic and so informative and went overtime with no extra charge. It was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend and the best value for money. Thanks John!


What ever is most comfortable although thongs are not recommended.  Sunglasses are a good idea if it’s going to be sunny.

If you don’t suffer from excessive motion sickness whilst travelling in a car, flying in a helicopter should not cause you motion sickness.

Absolutely.  You’ll never get a better chance!

No, however I wouldn’t recommend the flight for children under 4.

We won’t fly in strong winds, low cloud or rain.  If you are in any doubt about the suitability of the weather, please call or email and we’ll reschedule your flight to a better day.

I’ve been flying for over 40 years, with a perfect safety record!
