Whitehaven is Australia's most beautiful beach and flying over it is one inspiring way to view it.

Commence with a briefing covering all the essential safety procedures.  You'll soon be buckled up and ready to take to the skies departing from our base at Whitsunday Airport.  

Your pilot starts the engine and waits for clearance from air traffic control before taking you skyward in the mighty Russian YAK.  The YAK has a potent, nine-cylinder, a radial engine that effortlessly powers you up to 3500 feet.

At cruising altitude, there's time to take in the sights.  Smile for the camera over Hill Inlet for the iconic postcard shot but a shot with a difference.  You'll be upside down.  Now that's a selfie worth posting.

After some manoeuvres over Hill Inlet and Whitehaven Beach and lots of selfies along the way, you trackback to Airlie Beach to perform combat manoeuvres and aerobatics before heading back to the airport.

Like all flights, poor weather such as rain or high winds will mean the flight is postponed or curtailed to another day.  You will be able to rebook for another flight.

Prepare to be at the venue for 1 hour.  Allow 30 minutes in the aircraft
