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.

1 hour scenic flight is a great flight to do in the wet season as the falls are spectacular. You will need to be flexible with flight times to fit in with the weather but it is worth the wait. Pilot Charlie was great and...More

Pilot called Jai. Really great trip in a 4 seater Cessna. Mostly at about 1500 ft so the views stunning. See the Jim Jim falls and all the other falls in the area. A super way to spend a hour.
