This was a great flight n a former RAAF trainer aircraft. I was given the flight by my son and neighbours for my birthday. I opted to share it with my son and 4 year old aircraft obsessed grandson. I highly recommend this flight by an excellent pilot.

Last week I had the the great pleasure of an aerobatic flight with Mark Awad in his perfectly restored Winjeel A85-429 at Ballina. The flight was booked as a present from my three children Amanda, Paul and Jason on the occasion of a biggish birthday and was a surprise beyond my most favoured wish. The weather was perfect and showed off the magnificent scenery around Ballina once airborne. Of particular pleasure to me was that I actually last flew this aircraft as a RAAF pilot on the 7th March 1963 and I was on the first pilot course to fly this type of aircraft fresh from the factory.I have to say that Mark maintains his aircraft in mint condition and it looked as good as those brand new ones I got to fly initially ! What a superbly generous gift ,blessed by perfect weather and flown by a gifted owner pilot , Mark Awab. Great memories revisited I thoroughly recommend this experience to one and all , there is no age barrier to a delightful ride in a truly characterful aircraft with a history! Go for it !!

I had the most amazing flight. Mark the Pilot covers all details and gives you confidence in his ability to command this beast of a machine. Between back rolls and barrel rolls Mark would point out features in the landscape including Byron Bay's lighthouse. Mark definitely caters too the needs of the passenger and their upside-down threshold. I purchased a film of the trip which was great, it even recorded our conversation up there. I recommend the this company to anyone who has a sense of adventure, you won't be disappointed.
