Lake Macquarie Aerial Photo Shoot

NOTE: This is a promotional activity organised by Canon Australia.

This is Up, up and away! Take in the best of Lake Macquarie with your Camera and the doors off on a helicopter flight.

The Canon Collective has partnered with Skyline Aviation to bring you this unique opportunity. This experience provides you with a variety of vantage points and a unique perspective to capture Lake Macquarie from the air with a 20 minuets flight. Sessions run from 7:30am until 5pm. You will have the chance to take up an assortment of Canon’s best gear on the flight to help you nail the shot, and you will be briefed with tips and tricks prior to departure to ensure you are well prepared once in the air

Minimum 2 passengers for each flight. Photographers will be on the left side of the aircraft with the doors off. Seating will be at the discretion of the pilot for the purposes of weight and balance. Any questions or inquiries, please contact Brett from Skyline Aviation on 4945 1491.
Please note: All bookings are through Skyline Aviation.
