Aviair (previously Slingair) was established in 1984 and has grown to become the first choice for scenic air tours of the magnificently beautiful Kimberley region of Western Australia. With over 30 years' experience in remote outback aircraft operations, our personalised service will ensure your fixed wing scenic air tour, charter flight, or air transfer are completed in comfort and style. Our tailored air safaris and fly drive tours showcase famous Kimberley attractions, including the Bungle Bungles in the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park, Lake Argyle, Mitchell Falls, King George Falls and the Argyle Diamond Mine. Aviair solely operates the Cessna 208 Caravan, which it introduced into the Kimberley in 1994. The Cessna 208 Caravan is a turbo prop, fully air-conditioned, high wing, PA equipped aircraft. The aircraft offers a centre aisle, greater legroom and headroom than any other scenic flight aircraft in the Kimberley. In addition the safety and reliability record of this aircraft type is one of the highest in its class, thereby maximising passenger safety and comfort. Aviair is proud to operate the youngest fleet of scenic tour aircraft in the Kimberley. In addition to charters, tours and remote transfers, Aviair is also a fundamental bridge between remote communities and larger towns. Aviair also provide freight transport, mining support, survey, search and rescue, emergency extraction, and mail services to remote communities. Aviair is a subsidiary of the Aviator Group, a general aviation specialist with operations around Australia. Aviair operates 8 Cessna 208 Caravan turbo prop aircraft each with a 10 to 13 passenger seat capacity. The company's head office is in Kununurra with a base in Broome. Aviair offer 8 air safari tour options of which 6 include spectacular views of the Bungle Bungles; all provided by young Cessna 208 Caravan turbo prop aircraft. You can also combine a scenic air safari with a ground tour and helicopter flight. Aviair offers a comprehensive program that includes stunning views of Lake Argyle, the Argyle Diamond Mine (may include a ground tour); Kununurra Icons; Kimberley Panorama flight which takes you over the famous King George Falls and the spectacular Mitchell Falls. Aviair has experiences to suit any time frame and budget.

Put the vastness and grandeur of the Kimberley into perspective. We did the 2 hour flight option. Great views of Kununarra , the Ord River Scheme, Lake Argyle, Argyle Diamond Mine and the Bungle Bungles. Everyone has a window seat. The commentary is clear and detailed. A great way to appreciate the geology and vastness of this stunning area.

Did the trip to Mitchell Plateau and Drysdale Station. What a great trip. Burger was the best in the world at lunch. The two pilots were awesome. They interacted with us and kept us interested. I recommend this tour to anyone.

What a great flight.We took the morning flight and loved every minute of it. Being from rural Australia we loved flying over the cattle stations. Commentary was excellent and fantastic to see the size of the lake from the air. The Bungle Bungles are incredible. Highly recommend this flight.

If your fortunate enough to visit Kununurra or the surrounding Kimberley region then you definitely need to make sure you do a flight with Aviair to appreciate the amazing scenery. I travelled with my 6 year old son on on the Bungle Bungles Tour which incorporates Lake Argyle and also the diamond mine. We were well looked after by the... More

My wife and I flew with Aviair over the Bungles Bungles, June 11 2015 and we enjoyed our flight immensely. Tim our pilot gave a running commentary throughout the trip, and was most informative. The scenery in the Kimberly is spectacular. Highly recommended.

While it was all very good - unfortunately with the sun it was all very hard to see out the left hand side of the plane and the pilot seemed to favour the right hand side of the plane (ie 80% of the items of...

We flew to the Argyle Diamond Mine with Aviair as part of our organised holiday.

We had a fantastic trip with Aviair over Ord River, Lake Argyle, Diamond Mine and the Bungle Bungles. The pilot was professional and landed us safely back in Kununurra. The office staff were fantastic and we would recommend this trip to everyone.
