We did the Townsville fly-over and were absolutely blown away! It was a great way to see just how large Townsville has become. Paul pointed out places of interest and did a few "little" maneuvers to finish the flight! We thoroughly enjoyed it, Paul and...More

Flying in an open cockpit wind in the hair, with ww1 flying ace Paul, is a magical way of viewing magnetic island and Townsville. A truly amazing experience not to be missed.

We loved our flight over Townsville in this magnificent aircraft. You get a great over-view of the city, Castle Hill, Strand and Magnetic Island. On our list to do again.

There is no better way to have a birds eye view of Townsville, than from an open cockpit flight. Not only do you get to see some fantastic scenery. If you are up to it, then you can also enjoy some acrobatics.
