Hired a car in Darwin and drove to Jabiru (3hrs) to do the 1hr flight over Kakadu. Great way to see the park by air. Pilot was very knowledgable and gave commentary on the way. Would highly recommend.

Did an 1 hour flight last Sunday morning, over Kakadu and Arnhem Land. Really gives you a feel of the ernormity of the area, which you cant appreciate from the ground. Very informative pilot.

This was a highlight of our NT holiday, an hour flight with magnificent views. We flew along the East Alligator River and Dinosaur Valley and the border between Kakadu and Arnhem Land. The pilot was young and very calm and experienced with lots of information. Kakadu is the same size as Wales in the UK! Definitely recommend this.

10:00am one hour flight with The Scenic Flight Company (AAA Charter). Great service in booking with our preferred time catered for. Only 4 seater plane so we had 2 pilots - Paddy and Lydon. Fantastic way to enjoy and appreciate the wonderful and diverse North Eastern Kakadu landscape. Very informative and friendly pilots. Great value.

We had a group of seniors staying in Jabiru and after seeing a lot of this wonderful park from the ground, more than half decided to have a look from the air. Nick was great and was able to get those who wanted in the air. The flight, scenery and commentary was first class.

What a brilliant experience. We had spent 3 nights at Jabiru and spent our days exploring the beauty of Kakadu. On the spur of the moment we decided to take a half hour scenic flight over the areas that we had explored by road, water and foot. We stumbled across AAA who couldn't have been more helpful. Our pilot, Dave,... More
