Michael is an excellent pilot. Smooth ride and landing despite 45 knots cross wind, sleet and 65 km headwind at Malaleuca. Cheery, knowledgeable, competent. The team at Par Avion could not be more helpful and accommodating. Excellent company. Have flown with them before and will again.

Perfect day to enjoy the coastal flight in, Bathurst Harbour by boat and the return flight over the wilderness mountains. Enjoyed Tasmanian produce for morning tea and lunch on the shore. Guides friendly and informative. Return to Melaleuca and Bathurst Harbour after walking the South Coast Track over 45 years ago lived up to all my expectations.

This experience was something I've been wanting to do most of my life! We finally managed it for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was fantastic. Just make sure you don't run out of battery in your camera!

This has to be one of the best attractions in Hobart! We were so fortunate to have perfect weather. Flying conditions were ideal and the whole experience faultless thanks to the very capable Par Avion staff. Our pilot was Finn and his manner was friendly but professional and knowledgeable. The photo opportunities were endless during the flight and the boat... More

My wife and I did the full day Wilderness Tour and I can say with all honesty that this was the best day tour we have ever done, anywhere. Thomas, the pilot, was very knowledgable about all aspects of the areas we visited as well as being a great boat driver and able to prepare a delicious meal. The Wilderness... More

As a Tasmanian who has been all around the state, the rest of Australia and many places around the world, I have always wanted to visit Port Davey and the far South West. To say this trip was worth the wait would be an understatement. I went on the Par Avion full day tour to the South West and it... More

Flight on hold due to bad weather on 18.11.2014. It was worth to wait for a quick return trip and 20 minutes with the Orange-bellied Parrots.

Had a great time with Dane on my first time in a light plane, and couldn't believe I got to take control of the plane. Dane was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions; felt very safe the whole time. Scenery is beautiful too- almost worth it just for that. If I was Hobart-based then I'd definitely look at... More

We had a fantastic flight courtesy of our friendly, professional pilot Michael and a magic day. I was quite nervous about the size of the plane (Cessna 172) but after about 10 minutes, I felt completely comfortable, all due to Michael's professionalism. This was our second go at this trip as previously, our flights were cancelled due to bad weather.... More

We were put off on our original day by the company because of weather conditions and thankfully we were still going to be in the area for the rescheduled date 2 days later. But was it ever worth to have waited for the gorgeous weather day!! The trip is totally amazing and it was certainly one of the highlights of... More
