I'll show you a perspective of the Sunshine Coast normally afforded only to the black swans and pelicans. With a maximum of 3 passengers, your experience is personal and interactive. I will answer your questions and give as much explanation about the aircraft and area that you want. We'll start the adventure by getting sand between your toes on the shore of the Maroochy River, where you will meet my crew and get your feet wet. After a short briefing, I'll get you settled in the aircraft. Every seat is a window seat and the aircraft was actually designed as an observation plane, so be prepared for amazing views. We taxi and take off from the waterway, and on this particular flight which we call the River Dash, we take you to the river mouth for a brilliant perspective over the beaches before a smooth turn and return to base. The flight time for this experience is five (5) minutes. We take photos for you and send you a beautiful hardbound photobook featuring pictures of you, the aircraft and the area! Whether you are a flying enthusiast or someone who normally endures flying as a way to get from here to there, you'll come back with a huge smile, we guarantee it. Seriously!! This is truly an iconic and powerful experience.
Hi, I am a qualified flight instructor and a commercial seaplane pilot with over 7000 hours flying time. I am a transplant from California and I want to share with you my passion for seaplanes and the beautiful Sunshine Coast. I want to make every guest a convert to the joy of flying in light aircraft, and so far I have been successful. We have had lots and lots of people to fly with us who were extremely apprehensive in the beginning and every single one has had a terrific time and has come back with a huge smile on their face. I am happy to tell you as much or as little as you like about flying and the airplane and why she is so stable. Taking off and landing from the water is an experience not to be missed. Truly a MUST for your bucket-list!

The area is teaming with natural wildlife. This experience is five (5) minutes of flight time.
