Our family took the 60 minute scenic flight with a lovely pilot/guide Tom. He took the time to make sure everyone was comfortable before we took off and got a great view of the sights once airborne.

We did the one hour flight. Our pilot Joe was great. My wife suffers from motion sickness, and he was very understanding and made sure she had an enjoyable flight. The views were amazing, a great way to appreciate Kakadu.

Joe the pilot was personable, experienced and skillful at flying. I felt totally safe and was able to relax and enjoy the fabulous landscape. Joe pointed out all of the major land marks. It was an unreal experience.
