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.

From the moment of booking to the end of the flight, this company provided amazing customer service and help. The pilot was very knowledgeable in his preparation, flight and tour information and made for a memorable trip. Having an air conditioned plane is definitely a big advantage especially to travellers not used to the humidity.

Pilot new his stuff, good oration however speakers front and nothing's going in between. I feel head phones would be the go as aircraft noise overrode the speaker, spectacular views however port side has more views(don'know if this could be rectified so as starboard side could also see same view?). All up fantastic flight. Rob Eade P.S. Kiwi's can fly

The flight over the Bungle Bungles was something to remember. From the service when booking a non- existing flight that they put on for us, to the detailed and entertaining commentary from our pilot Marcus, to the most spectacular landscape below us, all fantastic and not something you would want to miss, thanks for a great before breakfast jaunt.
