      Hi Marty,

      Check your email for pricing, but yes we are conducting transfers from Melbourne Essendon Airport Which is only 10mins from Tullamarine Airport or 15mins by taxi from Melbourne centre. Naturally race day is going to be busy, so you need to book early.

    My wife and kids are attending the superbikes on the Sunday.
    Wanted to know if 2 adults, 4 year old, 18 month old and 3 month old kids would all fit in on the same flight.
    Just wanted to give the kids a difference experience with a joy flight over the track and surrounding area.
    Also what would the cost be as a family? Do I need to pre-book?

      Hi Shaun,

      There no better way to get to the race and the kids (not to mention the big kids) will just love it.
      Check your emails for details.

    Hi Marty,

    What is the return price from Moorabin to Ph. Island on the Saturday (23 Feb) of the Superbikes. It would be myself and a friend (2 pax), happy to share with another 2 or another 1 to fill the helicopter. Would want to be there for the start of the day’s program and after the last race (as we have a friend’s son competing in the Australian Superbike Category junior category which is second last event on the Saturday)
