This scenic joy flight takes you to the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and then heads up the coast all the way to Broken Bay and the Central Coast. All this from the front seat of the Pitts Special open-cockpit bi-plane. What better way of seeing Sydney and the Northern Beaches? With the wind flying through your hair!
Upon your arrival at Bankstown Airport, you will climb into a flight-suit and prepare to board. Your pilot will strap you securely into the open-air cockpit of the Pitts Special S2A bi-plane and fasten your headphones and flight helmet. There will be plenty of time for your family and friends to take photographs of you as you prepare for your flight.
You will take off from Bankstown Airport and climb over the outer suburbs of Sydney to reach a cruising altitude of 1,500ft. You’ll soar over the sprawling Olympic site at Homebush Bay then circle north over Hornsby and St Ives. Once granted clearance to Sydney Harbour you’ll get a bird’s eye view of iconic landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. You can wave at the Prime Minister at Kirribilli, fly higher than the eagles at Taronga Park Zoo and salute the sailors on Garden Island. It’s the best seat in the house for the best view in the world!
You might also get a chance to check out Rose Bay and the world famous Bondi Beach, before heading north over Middle Harbour, the Spit Bridge and Manly as you follow the coastline to Long Reef. At this point you can choose to try some aerobatics but its entirely up to you.
If you’d prefer something more leisurely, we will continue your scenic tour up to the NSW Central Coast over the beautiful waterways of Brisbane Waters and The Entrance before heading back to Sydney over the Hawkesbury River.
Landing back at Red Baron HQ you’ll be hard pressed to stop smiling for the rest of the day and we hope it is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
All scenic flights can include some Aerobatics at the passengers discretion.
