Itinerary
Pass By:  
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
The incredible aerial view of Uluru is a must-see. On this flight we also take you across to the spectacular domes of Kata Tjuta for a view that will leave you speechless. Due to the sacredness of this area so much of it is off limits from the ground, so the only way to really appreciate these amazing formations is to see them from above. You will not be disappointed.
Pass By:  
Lake Amadeus
Fly over the remains of an ancient coral reef on the way to Lake Amadeus, before descending down to conduct a low level pass following the inlet into the lake. Your pilot will then conduct some orbits at low level to witness the incredible patterns on the surface of the lake and the beautiful colors that make this one of the most breathtaking views in the area. As you climb, take in the 112-miles (180-kilometers) of the lake before departing for Kings Canyon.
Pass By:  
Kings Canyon
Enjoy the flight across the Australian outback and gain an appreciation of its vastness. Approach the George Gill Range and the opening of Kings Canyon lined with Ghost Gums. The pilot will point out the Lost City along the Canyon edge and the Garden of Eden waterhole located inside the canyon. Your local pilot knows all about Uluru and its surroundings and will provide you with expert commentary, so please feel free to ask as many questions as you like. Experience a view like no other!
