Air Adventure Australia offer small group, all inclusive air safari itineraries catering for the young at heart wanting to access outback Australia. The combination of Air Adventure’s sound knowledge of remote Australia and the use of private aviation services means the outback is a lot closer for you.
Air Adventure is the creation of pioneer pastoralist and bush pilot, the late Rod Dyer. It was Rod’s adventurous spirit and love of remote Australia which inspired him to begin taking groups of travellers to share his experience of the outback.
The Dyer family has lived and worked in the outback since the mid 1900’s and have been offering air tours since 1977.
In 2013 we introduced our new Outback Jet (Cessna Conquest II), raising the bar when it comes to accessing remote Australia. This immaculate aircraft significantly reduces the amount of time spent in the air, which means even more time exploring each destination. With a brand new interior, the onboard comfort is exceptional with leather reclining seats, powerful air conditioning, and equipped with a PA system for in-flight commentary. The Outback Jet’s technology is first rate with Garmin avionics and an iPad on board for live flight progress.
