Last Sunday, I took Liane and Max on a helicopter flight from Bankstown, over their house at Mt Colah out to Palm Beach down to Long Reef and back to Bankstown via the Sydney Harbour. It was their wedding present from me. It was spectacular weather, an absolutely gorgeous day for flying. We were lucky to get an air-conditioned Robinson R44 Raven II from Bankstown Helicopters. We were joined on the flight by the amazing instructor Jeremy.
Thanks to Liane and Max for the following photos of the trip.

Outbound from Bankstown
Leaving Bankstown at 0830 we travelled out through Choppers West then used the Lane of Entry to head north towards the Mt Colah where we did an orbit over Liane and Max's house then continued north to Patonga. We flew over the following checkpoints.
- Pennant Hills
Arriving at Patonga we then followed the Hawkesbury River out towards the sea. Arriving at Palm Beach. From Palm beach we followed Pittwater down to Scotland Island then we headed out to the coast and followed the beaches from North Narrabeen down to Long Reef. It was spectacular. I love that section of the coast. At Long Reef we headed south along Victor One to North Head.
Travelling west along the harbour and back to Bankstown we flew over the following checkpoints.
- North Head
- Sydney Harbour Bridge
- Gladesville Bridge
- Ryde Bridge
- Choppers North
