Flying with us you can arrive minutes before we depart (remember it is your private plane so we depart whatever time suits you), park your car next to the plane (for FREE), load the surfboards and you're away - No hidden costs.
Our base is at Barwon Heads airport were most of our flights depart from, however we also offer convenient airport pickups and drop-offs points from Avalon, Essendon, Moorabbin. If you prefer we can pick you up from your nearest local airport (at an extra cost - call us for a quote).
