Do something a bit different. It seems that everyone has gone skydiving, and everyone has a tattoo.

But very few have experienced a ride like this...

Get strapped in, don your leather flying helmet and goggles, and roar upwards on an unforgettable aerobatic flight over Airlie Beach in a 1940 Biplane.

Feel the wind in your face, and hang by your straps, upside down over Airlie Beach and be part of aviation as it once was. When the men who flew were pioneers, explorers and adventurers. The flight doesn't take long, but the experience will last a lifetime.

First a scenic flight over a lot of beautiful Islands, then the Acrobatics, never had such an experience. Later on I booked the same trip for my girlfriend as I could not explain how... More

I loved it, the scenic flight was just incredible, pilot has a great sense of humour, I am so glad I went for the Aerobatics after the scenic flight, the rush was intense, I lost count of the amount of spins and loops we did. If I am back in the Whitsundays again I will back in a Tigermoth!

Had the most awesome experience flying solo in the open cockpit of this beautiful plane. Definitely the best way to see the Whitsundays and Whitehaven, complete with a narrated tour with heaps of interesting local knowledge by owner Nick the only thing missing was whales but they're here now so maybe I should go again! I'd recommend the experience to... More

Had an excellent time. Great experience. Very friendly. Cameras accident broke half way through and we got to go back up again to get the footage. Unfortunately they didn't work again so they were kind enough to give what they had to us for free. Would recommend to anyone!!
