Outback Air Charter News
As you may know we have our own full motion simulator….however it doesn’t quite look like this 737 cockpit that arrived at Moorabbin Museum last week!
The 2015 year is racing towards a close but there is still time to join us on one of our remaining tours. Listed below are some tours that still have available seats.
We are also currently planning the 2016 season. Some dates for early next year tours are already appearing on the website tour timetable. More dates will be added soon.
