A 1 hour journey - all seats window view - taking off from a dirt strip - views of the flood plains, the Escarpment, Ranger Uranium mine and then landing at Jabiru. Great value and an experience not to be missed.

As a professional pilot, I was difficult to please. The operation was very professional, and the service was second to none. We were flown over very scenic country, and the live commentary was both informative and entertaining. I'd use this service again.
