In 2015, Kirkhope Aviation hosted their first New Years Eve Flights high above the Melbourne skyline in our Piper Navajo! It was a stunning platform to see the official midnight fireworks, with displays visible throughout the greater Melbourne area as well as the CBD. The large windows provided panoramic views to our passengers, and our pilots enjoyed the event so much that they’re already talking among themselves about this year’s flight! We’re hosting the event again in 2016,with places available in our Piper Chieftain and Navajo aircraft. Families with children over age 10 welcome.
In case you’re wondering, these flights are conducted at approximately 2,500ft above Melbourne. Fireworks launched as part of the New Years Eve display typically travel 400-500ft upwards, which places us well above even those fireworks launched from buildings in the CBD. We get asked about this a lot.
Places are limited on both flights, so call us on 1300 206 130 early to avoid missing out! For more information on New Years Eve festivities in Melbourne, see the Only Melbourne website.
