What happens if the weather is bad?
Bad weather (or poor conditions on the water) may result in your flight being delayed or cancelled: we are constantly monitoring conditions, and generally know about two days in advance if there is likely to be a problem. We’re pretty quick to suggest postponing a flight if we think the conditions are not going to be conducive to a great experience – the objective is to have a great time! If this happens you can choose a full refund, or we will do our best to reschedule your flight at a convenient time.
Will I be next to a window?
Yes – all the passenger seats in our aircraft are window seats.
Can children go?
Yes children of all ages can go. Infants under 2 years old can fly in the lap of an accompanying adult. We do find that kids three years old or younger often sleep on the flight, but from that age up they will love it. Feel free to call us for more information.
Will my feet get wet?
Not normally. We board from a variety of places, some of which have pontoons and some of which don’t. Occasionally, if we’re going from a beach and the tide is not favourable, it may mean getting feet wet – but we can warn you in advance. From the beach we do have to walk on the sand though so sensible foot wear is a good idea (and none at all is fine!)
Is it noisy in the plane?
Not particularly: we use advanced headsets which keep things nice and quiet, and will allow you to talk among yourselves and to the pilot.
Will it be cold in the plane?
No – we generally only go to an altitude of 1000 feet, where it’s only slightly coller than on the ground. The aircraft has a heater, and you can always ask the pilot to turn it on if it’s a bit on the chilly side.
Is it hard to get in the plane?
Light aircraft can be a bit of a challenge to get in to, especially for people who’ve had hip or knee replacements or are not so mobile. However, we’ve pretty much got it worked out now, and there’s no one we haven’t been able to take for a fly – the secret is in taking our time.
Do you always take off and land on the water?
Yes – our aircraft are not amphibious. We’re lucky that the Eurobodalla is the ‘Land of Many Waters’, which also means many runways!
What if I start feeling queasy?
Some people do get motion sickness in aircraft, and it can depend a lot on the conditions on the day. If you are prone to motion sickness make sure you let the staff and the pilot know, as there’s quite a few things we can do to make the experience more comfortable.
