Gentle Aerobatic Package

Departing: Airlie Beach

10 minutes of Terror above the Whitsundays
  • 10 minute gentle introductory aerobatic flight in a Yak52 Soviet force training aeroplane around the Whitsunday Islands
  • Sit tight on take-off as we rocket to 2,500’ in less than 90 seconds and then your pilot will pull some G’s to see if you are paying attention to the scenery
  • With the back drop of Airlie Beach and the 74 islands of the Whitsundays in the background you will be pulling upwards of 3G with rolls, loops and wingovers.   

You may think our introductory aerial acrobatic flight is for pussies but it is certainly the best acrobatic flight we suggest you try initially to see if you have an iron stomach that can handle flying around the sky in loop de loops.

We take our guests into the sky from Airlie Beach in a Yak52 Soviet Air Force Training aeroplane that was built in 1990 and fly over the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Our Airlie Beach acrobatic flights are for dare devils or for those who wish they were dare devils and thus we have created this introductory 10 minute acrobatic flight around the beautiful Whitsunday Islands.

The Aerobatic Plane Details

This Yakovlev Yak52 was a Soviet primary trainer aircraft which first flew in 1976. At 998 kg empty weight, the Yak52 is very responsive and capable as an aerobatic aircraft for taking tourists into the skies across the Great Barrier Reef in the Whitsundays.

The acrobatic plane is stressed to +7 and –5 Gs, rolls (to the right) at 180 degrees/second and is capable of every manoeuvre in the Aresti catalogue.

Because the aeroplane only seats a Pilot and Passenger the flights are fully catered to the passengers wants, without having to share their experience with anybody else.

The aircrafts performance characteristics means that it is just as easy to give the passenger a gentle cruise with stunning views if they do not take to the aerobatics, or if they find the inner dare devil we can go mental with an aerobatic session, of an intensity of their choosing.
