You haven't truly experienced the vastness and beauty of Kakadu National Park until you've seen it from the air. Our experienced pilots will show you the wonder of this heritage listed area all year round. All passengers get a window seat and live commentary. We are a Territory owned and operated scenic flight company; we live in and love this area. Join us on an air adventure and let us show you the Kakadu you won't see from the ground.

Fantastic to see the beautiful nature from a completely different angle. A must do... Families with children be careful (!): We had booked a 60 minutes flight, which is too long if you have young children. Turbulences can be quite high, given the fact to fly with a small plane. They offer also a 20 min fun package, but I... More

We had a great experience with our 2 nice pilots ! The view is amazing, and the friendly pilots are full of information about the area. We were a group of 4 and all of us enjoyed it very much ! I really recommend it for landscape lovers !!! Cheers.

We went on a 30min-flight last week with our 2 smiley and friendly pilots. We were 4 people + 2 pilots in the tiny plane during the dry season (Beginning of August). We took the first flight in the morning and the atmosphere was absolutely perfect: a bit of mist, a sun not too hot and Cameron was giving us... More

We had a great pilot Linton who showed us so much of Kakadu across the escarpment, the East Alligator River, billabongs, Ubirr etc Love it! Only downside was the fixed wing strut that obscured our view a little for taking photos out of each side.

The pilot/owner really bad, you can tell from the moment you walk in he doesn't want to be there... They don't even have an office at the airport! Very old and dodgy looking planes. I recommend the other scenic company in Jabiru 10 times!!!

Hi alucard19, I note that you still have not left a review with our opposition. I'm guessing you didn't actually fly with either company. I also note that your comments sound eerily similar to one of their flyers. Interestingly, this Owner has not been a pilot for years so we're quite sure you didn't fly with me! Perhaps it's not...

We flew in the afternoon on the 60 minute Dry Season Scenic Flight. It was an amazing experience showcasing all that Kakadu has to offer from the air. Our pilot and co-pilot were very informative during the entire flight. The variation on what we were actually seeing was hard to comprehend at times looking from one side of the plane... More

Really enjoyed our half hour flight over Kakadu. Andrew our pilot was great. I was disappointed we didn't fly over any waterfalls but it was explained they cannot fly over once the falls have been opened after the wet season. Highly recommend.

We flew the one hour over Kakadu and our pilot was very knowledgable. Our plane was a six seater and felt very personalised. The views of the escarpments, wetlands, East Alligator River, Jabiru township, the mine etc were spectacular. A must do for all who visit. Would highly recommend.
