Other Info

Interstate passengers: The DC-3 is unpressurised and has no air conditioning. For the pleasure flights we conduct we therefore only operate in good weather and comfortable temperatures. Additionally, sometimes we have crewing, maintenance issues and unable to reach minimum numbers as all aviation companies are experiencing in these difficult times. These factors mean we need to often cancel planned flights at relatively short notice (this can be as much as 40% of our schedule). This can be very frustrating and costly for people coming from interstate to fly with us. We of course refund our fares completely but cannot assist with travel and associated expenses. Please consider this if you’re contemplating flying with us.

This experience takes place in Strathbogie Wine Region, departing from Essendon, VIC.
