We're award-winning tourism operators

We're experienced aviators

We fly the best aircraft available for the experiences on offer and all aircraft meet our high standards of passenger safety, comfort and maintenance. These machines, our aircraft, are our pride and joy and we treat them like part of the family.

Our fleet handles all our diverse customer requirements – from tourism, charter and airline services through to flight training and aerial work. We regularly operate into major city and remote airstrips, wilderness areas and iconic destinations unreachable with other types of transport.

Our aircraft are maintained to high standards by our own engineering team and have all required equipment for flight in variable Tasmanian conditions.
