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.

Highly recommend this flight. Fantastic sights, a landing in the bush, knowledgeable, enthusiastic commentary from the very safe and smooth pilot. Covers a lot of country in a comfortable air conditioned plane with big windows for easy viewing. Spotted some large Salties as well. Do it!

The views from air were spectacular and being on the ground amongst the towering beehive domes was breathtaking. We had a very comfortable flight with very competent knowledgable pilots.

We took the diamond mine tour and had a great day. Our pilot and driver was Marcus and did a great job. The flight over lake argyle, the Carr Boyd range and bungle bungles was magnificent. Lunch at the mine was great and the tour commentary was really well done. Thank you for a great day.
