The company has been operating since 1997 and offers charter and scenic flights in their 4 seat Cessna 172s and 6 seat twin engine Partenavia.
Freycinet Peninsula is regarded as one of the most beautiful places in the world with its combination of mountains, forests and white beaches. The best way to experience this amazing but inaccessible location is by taking a scenic flight. All flights provide unparalleled views of the beautiful Wineglass Bay, the Hazards and the Freycinet Peninsula. You will also experience the Swan River, Schouten Island and miles of unspoilt white sand beaches with turquoise water. You may extend your flight south to Maria Island or along the coast to Swansea and then north to Bicheno. Join us on this once in a life time experience and let Tasmania’s natural beauty take your breath away.
Freycinet Air flies from Friendly Beaches Airfield, located 18 kilometres north of Coles Bay.
This flight takes you over the rugged granite mountains and sweeping white beaches of the Freycinet Peninsula.
You fly over several lagoons and Tourville Lighthouse before The Hazards and Wineglass Bay come into full view. To appreciate this spectacular scene, we complete a full orbit of Wineglass Bay and The Hazards before continuing south along the Peninsula and its rugged coastline. At the southern tip of the Peninsula we fly around Schouten Island and over the ruins of an historic whaling station.
The 30-minute flights leave every day between 0830 and 1700.
