Scenic Flights in and Around the Whitsundays
Aviation Adventures specialise in the Bell 47 Kawasaki KH-4 and are owned by local identity Capt'n Pete Ryan who has over 7500 hours experience, ranging from search and rescue, oil rig worker transfers, marine pilot transfers, executive charters to world renowned photographic charters. The other amazing pilots are Alex and Ed. Operations are expertly run by Abby.
The configuration in the KH-4 positions the pilot up front with 3 seats behind allowing us to take 2 or 3 adults, or 2 adults and two children. (weight limits do apply). We have three Kawasaki Helicopters operating.
Aviation Adventures generally fly with the "Air-conditioned option", the doors off, giving our guests an amazing unobstructed view of the Whitsunday’s.
The larger helicopters hold more passengers, this ultimately means tours are shared with strangers and the privacy element is lost. Additionally, this can restrict the times set for tours whereas Aviation Adventures consistently maintains both flexibility and privacy for its customers
Our pilots go so far as to fly the helicopter on alternate sides to ensure each guest enjoys all the highlights of their tour. The helicopters travelling speed and low level flying (Not above 1,500ft) also ensures passengers are treated to the very best that the Whitsunday’s have to offer.
We’ll take you for a romantic champagne picnic on famous Whitehaven Beach or a deserted tropical island.

experience our experience…….
Air Whitsunday pioneered seaplane services to the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands in April 1973. The company was foundered by Kevin and Sue Bowe and commenced operations from Happy Bay on Long Island with just one Lake Buccaneer amphibious flying boat. The company quickly grew to the largest seaplane operator in the Southern Hemisphere and it retains that position today.
Air Whitsunday now operates a fleet of famous De Havilland Beaver amphibious floatplanes and has made many developments and enhancements to this reliable and rugged workhorse. With our own team of Aircraft Engineers, metal workers and painters, we rebuild and remanufacture the Beaver with a stretched passenger cabin, additional and larger passengers windows, modified wings, fuel and hydraulic systems.
Also operating are the luxurious Cessna C208 caravans providing passengers with air conditioning and whisper quiet comfort.
The Cessna caravan is a modern high speed turbine powered aircraft enabling us to offer connections to all ports with seat capacity of up to 10 passengers. It is world renowned as the most versatile commuter aircraft in production today, extending and highlighting on Air Whitsunday’s commitment to continue in being Australia's largest and most progressive, seaplane operator.
