Heli Experiences Pilot Josh( Below) and I flew to Mt Buller last week, and enjoyed one of the best blue sky winters day ever.
After departing Essendon, given the early morning fog we were VFR on top for the trip over Melbourne and cleared up to 2500 feet by the Essendon controllers, before experiencing perfect weather for the remainder of the trip. We snuck up to 6500 feet for a direct track straight to Mt Buller, which we could see in the distance before we even got to the Yarra Valley!
After a track over the Village and the fresh snow on the ski runs, we landed at the top of the car park at Horse Hill, for the quick trip onto the moment.
Some of our guests had never seen snow before so it was a real treat. We left the moment at 4.15 pm and was back just after 5, with our guests in the hotel by 5.45pm…now that’s a day at the snow!! Even Better they got an awesome Melbourne helicopter scenic on return.
