The business was established in 1999 on the Great Ocean Road by its current owner and company Chief Pilot.

An additional base in South Australia covers scenic flights over the majestic Flinders Ranges, Lake Eyre, Birdsville, and the Channel Country. This is a seasonal affair operating from March through to November.

Through its establishment and operation in 2 locations, the business holds some significant and strategic assets, providing the opportunity for growth as more and more customers take the chance to experience bush flying with breathtaking views of beautiful landscapes and seascapes in some of Australia’s most popular destinations.

What makes this business successful?

Flights range from local 10-minute joy rides for $70 per person to overnight stays and 9 hours of flight time for $3,250 per person. Cape Otway customers are typically free independent travellers touring in the local area where Google ads, Facebook, and awareness from local businesses, especially accommodation businesses, provide a regular stream of customers. These customers pay by credit card or cash, and thus the point of sale operations are necessary, so the business is uncomplicated and unburdened by invoicing procedures.

The Flinders Ranges operation will typically operate based on pre-bookings where people plan to visit the Flinders rangers well in advance. However, some customers will always choose to impulse buy through a well-positioned flight office. This makes the location of the premises in South Australia invaluable for walk-in point of sales.
