Prepare yourself for a flight of pure nostalgia in this authentic former 1950's Royal Australian Air Force trainer. The CA-25 Winjeel will take to the skies to give you amazing views of the Yarra Valley for an adventure flight like no other.
The Winjeel, an aboriginal word meaning “young eagle”, was designed and constructed in Melbourne by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation in the mid 1950's. It was used by the Royal Australian Air Force as a basic trainer and later as a Forward Air Control aircraft. For your adventure flight, you will get to experience amazing views of the Yarra Valley, and get a taste of what it would have been like for our brave RAAF pilots as they embarked upon their pilot training.
The Winjeel features 3 passenger seats, so why not buy multiple vouchers and take your friends and family!
