  • Description

    What better way to see the harbour than from a Pitts Special. Transport yourself back in time to an age of rag and wood aircraft. Fly over Sydney Harbour in a Pitts Special, an Open Cockpit Biplane, and feel the air on your face as you take in the view. The Pitts Special may look old-style but it is in-fact a modern competition aerobatic biplane. 

    Your adventure begins as you don a flight suit and cloth flying helmet and strap yourself in. Get ready for the best view of Sydney in the most charming aircraft to grace the skies. Your 50-minute flight takes you from Bankstown airport to Sydney's Harbour via the north western suburbs. Circle over the world's most spectacular harbour taking in views of the City, Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Once leaving the Harbour fly north to Longreef. If you're game, tell the pilot you want to loop and roll and see for yourself a little of what the Pitts Special really can do, before heading back to Bankstown airport. 

    Note: all Sydney Harbour flights are subject to airways clearances from Sydney International Airport.

    I can definitely recommend the red baron to anybody who loves an adrenalin rush and wants to see the most beautiful harbour in the world from the best vantage point.

    Absolutely amazing! The view was magnificent and the commentary by Enzo the pilot was great. He pointed out land marks and I was fully informed of what was happening. The aerobatics was icing on the cake. Since my fight a week ago I must have recommended it to at least 100 people.

    Absolutely fantastic - what better way to see Sydney than banking over the Harbour bridge and Opera house in a bi-plane! The water was so clear that I could see huge schools of fish off Bondi - the spectacular view was only matched by the adrenalin rush of the aerobatics at the end of the flight!
