  • What’s the difference between a 30 minute & 60 minute flight? Which is better?

    You will experience 2x 30 minute flights.  We call it 'hops' because you will take off and fly for 30 minutes then land, then again take off for another 30 minutes. There is higher chance of spotting wallabies (kangaroos) and you will see different scenery on 2 flights.
