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.

The flight gave us a much better perspective about the park and its surrounding. Something else than only tourring with the car. Price paid is ok and not overrated for what you get to se. I Would not hesitate to rebook it again. Many comments...More

We decided to splash out on a one hour flight as we had been advised this was the best way to see Kakadu. We also preferred to have a commentary that was live, not a recorded one as offered by another company. Jai, our pilot,...More

At the time of writing this $250 per head for the 1 hour flight was fabulous. Driving and walking Kakadu does not do it justice. The 1 hour flight was barely enough. The pre-recorded commentary was fair, a bit hard to hear - it would...More

Seeing Kakadu from the air gives some idea of the size of the park and the diversity of landscapes in the park. We chose The Scenic Flight Company because they have small 4 and 6 seat planes which makes for a more intimate experience. My...More
