Your safety and comfort is our number one priority and we take your safety very seriously. Starting with your entry into our lounge at Sydney Airport is through electronically controlled doors, and to access the airside tarmac is again through electronically controlled security doors which means there is absolutely no risk of anyone opening an airside door and accidently walking off into an operating helicopters rotor or tail rotor.
Once you have been checked in you will be required to watch a safety briefing that covers all aspects of safety while you are with us at the heliport, two very important safety aspects that are covered in our safety briefing are, seat belts and how to operate them, lifejackets and how to operate them along with other very important safety aspects and comfort aspects of your flight like the use of headsets.
At all times when you are with us at Sydney HeliTours out on the airside tarmac you will be escorted by either your Sydney HeliTours pilot or a Sydney HeliTours ground crew member. When you arrive back safety from your flight your pilot will control all aspects of safety in and around the aircraft. Your pilot will open any required doors to safety disembark you from your aircraft and also escort you off the airside tarmac back to the waiting lounge. Being escorted off the airside tarmac is a very important safety aspect due to the hazards of manoeuvring around other operational aircraft on the airside tarmac
When it comes to all aspects of your safety when you are with us at Sydney HeliTours, there is nothing that we do not take more seriously. We are incredibly proud of our company’s 100% safety record.
