Outback Tours and Private Charter Testimonials
In August 2017, my 12yo son and I were fortunate to join pilot Keith and 2 other couples on a Top End holiday of a lifetime. There is simply no other way to experience so many remote sights and experiences in such a short period of time. No travelling long distances at slow speeds on poor quality roads just to experience one location – plus the flight was part of the experience, rather than an unavoidable hassle when travelling on large planes – no long delays, no check-in queues, etc!
At each location, some only accessible by small planes, we were greeted by our own personal guides, taken to our accommodation, and later treated to a diverse range of experiences – bush walks, swimming in pristine water holes, river and wetland cruises, helicopter ride, dining in the desert, etc. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kirkhope Aviation for its Top End holiday, and also flights to other destinations.

Thank you, Keith, for an absolutely wonderful ‘Taste of the Outback’ Tour last weekend and for all the trouble you went to, in making it such an enjoyable experience. I know what goes into the ‘behind the scenes’ organisation for these types of trips and I appreciate your efforts in ensuring that everyone had a very special four days.
I thoroughly enjoyed visiting places I had not been to for some thirty years and experiencing again the beauty of the outback landscapes and the hospitality of the wonderful people who live there. All this and to have had the privilege to do this in a light aircraft flown by a very competent pilot.
Kind regards, Doug
Dear Kirkhope Aviation. I was really impressed with the way everything happened just as it was promised and overall the trip really exceeded my expectations, so on the level of professionalism and hospitality I think you deserve full marks. I really liked the way Tony took into account peoples separate wants and preferences, and I appreciated how he and all the land guides were the source of interesting and valuable information but at the same time didn’t over-do it. It was so peaceful and quiet in all those remote places and I never felt that the group was intruding, there was just the right balance of communication and privacy. I cant imagine that anybody wouldn’t have a great trip with you. Best regards, Pam
It was one of the more memorable mini holidays that we have ever taken. Keith is a delightful man, generous and hospitable host and great pilot. He made us all feel very comfortable and safe. Good food, good accommodation and pleasant company. Two big hits were Ernie Mitchell at Lake Mungo and the hospitality of Cindy at Muloorina Station. Overall, in my opinion you have a very good business going and we will continue to spread the word. Kind regards, Alan.
A special thank you to Nick for taking me to Mt Buller, the city and the bay area. I had a fantastic time. I’m glad I got to meet Tony to give my appreciation of Nick. He made it all so worthwhile and accommodated my every need and made it all very special. Susan
Australia is such a magnificent country and what a privilege it was to experience ” A 4 Day Taste of the Outback ” with Kirkhope Air.The Tour was filled to the brim with the amazing scenery of our beautiful country from the air and on the ground. The ground tours were informative and exciting. The comment made many times on arrival back to the aircraft ” We are so spoilt! So glad that we are not getting into a 4WD to travel these outback roads.” Many thanks Tony & Keith for your organisation of the tour to fit in with our dates, our upgraded accommodations, answering all our queries and all the information you provided, the snacks and lollies in the plane…..you have thought of everything. The tour was perfect in every way, the aircraft fabulous, our travelling companions fun to be with and the April weather warm, sunny and not too hot. A huge thank you to Hans our very experienced and careful pilot. We felt comfortable and relaxed throughout the trip with the aircraft in your capable hands. Thanks also for your consideration and care during a bout of unfortunate motion sickness. We really enjoyed your company and that of your wife Helen. Lots of laughs and fun shared. We look forward to experiencing future tours and adventures in Australia with Kirkhope Air. Best wishes, Heather & Gordon
The tour was fantastic and surpassed our expectations. We would like to stay in touch and would love to share and receive some of the photos from Hans & Helen. We really did enjoy their company and Helen was a mother hen looking after all of us. We were impressed with Hans skills as a pilot. He was very careful and except for some of the low altitude thermals it was a very smooth ride in the aircraft. Also impressed with your aircraft and your organisation of the tour thank you. Many thanks, HeatherThe trip was awesome thank you. Hans is a great pilot, and he did a fantastic job. The trip surpassed our expectations, and we are all very grateful that you organised a trip like that. The dinners were superb, and the one we loved the most was the Prairie Hotel. Everyone enjoyed the trip, see you soon, thanks again. Cheers, Barb and DavidVic
