If you’re going to do a scenic flight, it might as well be in one of the great aircraft of all time – the Tiger Moth. If you’ve not heard of the name, you will certainly know it by sight. That’s because the Tiger Moth is the open cockpit single rotor blade aircraft used by trainee RAF pilots during WW2. It was a time of leather helmets. Goggles. Scarves. Bomber jackets. And the unmistakable chug of the single blade propeller.
So then what better way to see the Cape Byron lighthouse than in this wonderful flying machine?
Departing Tyagarah Airstrip, you'll follow the beach to Cape Byron Lighthouse, then turn inland & fly via Minyon Falls to the spectacular Wanganui Gorge. Soon Mt Warning looms into view & you'll climb to circle the summit. The return journey is via the Tweed Valley and Murwillumbah to the coastal village of Pottsville. Then you descend to 500 feet for your coastal flight back to Tyagarah.
This 60-minute tiger moth flight is one you will enjoy for the rest of your life as you glide over the beaches of Byron Bay spotting whales & dolphins as they swim in the surf below.
