Lake Eyre & the Great Outback

Chartering an aircraft from Flight One offers you the travel experience of a life time – the chance to visit Lake Eyre and other spectacular destinations across this sunburnt country. Cruise above Australia’s most beautiful natural attractions in a comfortable six-seat Piper Turbo Lance. There is no better way to see Australia’s vast Outback landscape.

As a sample destination, Lake Eyre is 700 km north of Adelaide in South Australia. It is the continent’s lowest point, being 15 m below sea level at its basin. In the dry months, a spectacular salt pan surrounds the lake. During flood, the lake becomes almost entirely freshwater and transforms the outback into an oasis.

By air, you can conveniently access and experience many other of South Australia’s attractions such as Coober Pedy’s below ground residences and opal mines. Why not visit Birdsville while you are exploring our great western landscape?

Please call us and we will have our Charter Tour Specialists, Barry & Cheryl Arentz, discuss all the details about aircraft charter and destination options.

Choose from one of our suggested itineraries, like the examples below, or tailor-make your own with our pilots. We would love to accommodate you and your party in what we trust will be a very special experience.

A few comments from past adventurers:

Hello Cheryl and Barry
We had a truly memorable trip-fantastic scenery, great company and we have come away with a greater knowledge and appreciation of these remote places and the people that live in them. Thank you both so much. Regards Jane and Steven.

Dear Cheryl,
Just a note to thank you for taking Bec and I on such a wonderful experience. Everything went so smoothly and all the stops so interesting. I am gearing up now to go to Noosa for the Jazz Festival next weekend. It has become a yearly event. I am just so glad I am well enough to do these things and I thank you sincerely, Gloria.

Dear Cheryl and Barry,
Hope you enjoy seeing these [photos]. Just a small selection! On photo 2267 outside (Coober Pedy) is a flat top mountain with words. Just can’t quite make out it out fully. Do you know if this was done for a movie? We were very fortunate with the weather. Glad we didn’t postpone it. Once again many thanks for a fantastic trip and your dedication to making everything go smoothly and enjoyable. Regards and Best Wishes, Norm and Carol.

Hello Cheryl,
We wish to thank you very much for making available trips to the outback. We enjoyed our time learning about life out west. Wonderful to see Lake Eyre so full of water. Good to see the desert so green & that there is a lot of water to give people new hope for the future. The time you gave to every detail made the trip more special. Take care. Kind Regards, June.
