Now you can explore yours and arrive in style with an on-water take off and landing that will punctuate the experience like nothing else can! Join us for an amazing flight in our rugged Wilga Warbird it has more glass than a helicopter, excels at flying low and slow, and sounds fantastic thanks to its big radial engine!

Fly north for our Noosa Adventure. Take off, follow the Maroochy River to the coast, then bank slowly north over Mudjimba Island, follow the beaches past Mt Coolum, over Noosa National Park and biosphere to Noosa River and return. Truly breathtaking.
