Overview

You haven't truly experienced the vastness and beauty of Kakadu National Park until you've seen it from the air. Our experienced pilots will show you the wonder of this heritage listed area all year round. All passengers get a window seat and live commentary. 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.

A big call out to pilot Troy who looked after us in very trying circumstances. National Parks were burning off and flying was limited. Troy kept us abreast of what was going on. His and the company's general communication with us was fantastic.

Ryan our pilot was amazing to take us over Kakadu. The scenic flight is the perfect way to see the Jim Jim waterfalls during the wet season ( also the only way :)) The flying over the billabongs is stunning! Well worth.
