The Dehavilland DHC-2 Beaver has been used around the world for decades for a multitude of purposes such as hauling supplies to remote communities, search and rescue, fishing expeditions and pleasure flights.
Our Beaver is a 1957 model and has had careers in Alaska and Northern Canada before moving to Australia and being completely refurbished for its new life as one of the best ways to see the Australian landscape.
With up to six passengers, the Beaver is ideal for small groups wanting to see the vineyards and attractions of the lower Hunter Valley. Being equipped with amphibious floats, for those wanting to travel slightly father afield we can indulge in a landing on Lake Macquarie for a unique view of the Rathmine’s Flying Boat base, a former WWII seaplane base.
The Tiger Moth, a British design which first flew in 1931, was the primary Commonwealth training aircraft of WWII in which over 30,000 Australian pilots learned to fly. The type remained in service with the RAF and RAAF into the 1950’s, before embarking on various careers such as crop dusting and delighting a new generation of pilots as civilian aeroclub trainers.
Our particular Tiger Moth, VH-BBC, was built in 1945 and has been immaculately restored. Flying in the Tiger Moth is a true nostalgic experience as you experience what flight was like during the “golden age” of aviation.
Our shorter flights take you over the local vineyards and attractions such as Hunter Valley Gardens, Hope Estate and the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley. Our longer options go as far afield as Lake Macquarie or the Upper Hunter. Discuss with your pilot or contact us to allow us to tailor your experience to what you would like to see.
For larger groups and corporate/team building functions we can carry up to 12 passengers on scenic flights in our modern charter aircraft, the Cessna Grand Caravan. The Caravan is spacious and air conditioned with built in stairs to allow quick and easy loading and unloading.
