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.

Even though the flight was very nice the aircraft was on the small side for the 5 passengers & pilot on our trip.The said pilot was very knowledgeable about the area.

This is a must do in Kakadu. Our pilot, Lyden, was fantastic. This is the best way to see this magnificent part of the country. You won't be disappointed. We give this tour a 10/10.

We were the first flight of the day - recommended in the wet season. Patrick, our pilot, made the most of flying over the Jim Jim and Twin Falls (plus the not seen 'Hole in Wall') - thank you. The scenery is spectacular and definitely the best way to see the full beauty of Kakadu.

We booked a morning flight late in evening the day before, and being that we were only in Kakadu for a short time we felt very lucky to be able to be fitted in at such short notice. Seeing Kakadu from the air certainly give new perspective on the place, and our pilot Cameron gave an excellent commentary and suggestions... More

We did a one hour flight over the northern area of Kakadu and a bit of Arnhem Land. Our pilot Lydon was very good and informative about the area. It was a very relaxing experience and l could have cruised round for another couple of hours no problems. Highly recommend to do this flight.

We were initially booked to fly with Kakadu Air, who cancelled on us at the last minute as the safety authority had removed their flying certificate. We found out about The Scenic Flight Company through some other guests at our hotel and we're so glad. They put on an extra flight just for us the very next day and it... More

Flying over Kakadu and Arnhem Land is truly the best way to appreciate the vast landscape. Our trusty pilot Patrick was very friendly and full of information, also Patrick advised us of other activities to do in the area which we later did. A great experience.
