Entertain clients or treat yourselves, family and friends with all the complements of our passenger lounge before and after the race.

Helicopter Me invites you to join us for a spectacular afternoon of America’s Cup action.

Watch the race build-up on the big screen in our passenger lounge with gourmet grazing platters and refreshments, before heading out to your private luxury helicopter for a bird’s eye view of the racing – the ultimate way to watch the foiling AC75 yachts with clients, friends or family.

With our prime location on the waterfront, you can be above the racecourse only a minute or two after take-off.

Tune in to live commentary and enjoy easy communication with our BOSE noise cancelling headsets.

Our Airbus helicopters are the ideal helicopters for spectating, with their spacious cabins, large windows, and seating for 5 to 6 adults.

Prada World Series and Challenger Cup Race Packages:
$3900.00 incl. GST

America’s Cup Race Package:
$4600.00 incl. GST


These prices include catering and non-alcoholic beverages for up to six people, and of course the flight, which is up to 40 minutes in duration. This means you will be in the air over the course for the duration of one of the scheduled races on the day.

Most race days will have two races scheduled. Guests flying on the first race of the day are welcome to stay in the heliport lounge to watch the second race live on TV, and likewise guests flying over the second race of the day may come early to watch the first race.

The lounge facilities and viewing space may be shared by multiple groups, but the helicopter flight itself will be private for your group.
