Highlights

  • Scenic biplane flight over Sydney Harbour
  • Stunning views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge
  • Optional aerobatic stunts over Long Reef

Put on your flight-suit and climb aboard our Pitts Special open-cockpit bi-plane for the most amazing views of Sydney Harbour, The Opera House and Harbour Bridge and maybe even try a loop or a roll on the return journey to the airport!

What's Included?

  • 50 minute flight in a Pitts Special S2A aerobatic biplane
  • Flight suit

Climb into a flight suit, fasten your headphones and helmet, and jump in the front seat of an open-air cockpit Pitts Special S2A aerobatic biplane, sitting in front of your pilot. There will be plenty of time for your family and friends to take photos of you as you prepare for your flight. Once secure, your pilot will prepare the plane for take off. During this time you'll hear all the calls to air traffic control and be able to speak to your pilot through the intercom.

Take off from Bankstown Airport and climb over the outer suburbs of Sydney, reaching a cruising altitude of 1500ft. Soar over the sprawling Olympic site at Homebush Bay before circling north over Hornsby and St Ives. Once granted clearance to Sydney Harbour, you'll get a birds eye view of iconic landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. You can wave at the Prime Minister at Kirribilli, fly higher than the eagles at Taronga Park Zoo and salute the sailors on Garden Island. You may also get a chance to check out Rose Bay and the world-famous Bondi Beach before heading north over Middle Harbour, the Spit Bridge and Manly, following the coastline to Long Reef.

This is where things get really exciting as you pull out all stops with some aerobatics (optional); try a loop and a roll to give you a view of the world from a completely different perspective. This is what the Pitts was made for! You'll head back home over Mona Vale where you may catch a glimpse of the spectacular Bahai temple.
