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.

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!!!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.
