We were picked up by Cameron who announced he was our pilot. Excellent commentary by Cameron and he made us feel at ease as it was our first flight in a small plane. Only four passengers & views to die for.

Our friends and I had a wonderful experience on this flight. Patrick was a great pilot and did an excellent job of narrating our flight. It is the only way to really see the Kakadu territory and we would recommend Scenic Flight to all.
