Feel what life is like as a Fighter Pilot, as the massive 360hp radial engine thunders across the skies of Airlie Beach, pulling up to 6 times the force of gravity, and reaching speeds of 300km/hr!
Feel what life is like as a Fighter Pilot, as the massive 360hp radial engine thunders across the skies of Airlie Beach, pulling up to 6 times the force of gravity, and reaching speeds of 300km/hr! This is Airlie Beach’s only operator that caters the tour to EACH INDIVIDUAL PASSENGER, not a group of people that you happen to be a part of. You set the pace, meaning your flights can be as Gentle or as Mental as you want it to be.
Departing from Shute Harbour Airport, you will rocket to 2,500’ in less than 90 seconds. Once there, the pilot will talk you through as he pulls some G’s to get you in the mood.
Once your pilot receives the all clear from you, you'll rock and roll around the sky in this Classic Soviet Trainer and feel the push on your chest as the pilot pulls upwards of 3G, with rolls, loops and wingovers over the stunning backdrop of Airlie Beach and The Whitsundays.
Or, choose to take it a little easier with a more scenic flight taking in breathtaking views of the Whitsunday Islands, as we weave in and around them on a flightpath that takes us over South Molle, Daydream and North Molle Islands.
Whether you want your flight to be Gentle, or Mental, we have an experience that you will never forget!
