Experience being in a fighter jet and hold on tight as you are taken through basic aerobatics over the Hunter Valley, before flying over the Newcastle Coastline for a reconnaissance mission. Enjoy more advanced displays such as barrel rolls, cuban eights and more!
Experience the ultimate thrill with this warbird flight around Newcastle’s coastline and the Hunter Valley. Begin your experience with a full pre-flight mission and safety briefing session with your pilot. Next, buckle up and take to the skies as you enjoy a low level reconnaissance mission out to the coast, enjoying the picturesque scenery on the way, and maybe even spotting some whales in the water below. You will then be taken through basic aerobatics over the Hunter, including barrel rolls, loops and stall turns. On the way back, choose to enjoy some more scenic time flying over wineries or opt for advanced aerobatics like 4-point hesitation rolls, cuban 8, porteous loops, slow rolls and vertical rolls. All pilots are either currently serving or ex-military, and are fully trained in formation and aerobatic sequences. This is the perfect experience for the thrill seeker wanting to experience an incredible warbird adventure.

We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
