About Our Aircraft


cabinbrendan in PlaneOur GA8 Airvan aircraft is quiet, efficient and comfortable for a roomy and relaxed flight.  Our GippsAero GA8 Airvan aircraft was built here in Victoria and delivered new to us at Great Ocean Air in 2014. This model was chosen for a number of reasons.  The windows on the GA8 are the largest of any light aircraft. Coupled with the high wing design this allows for an unrivalled viewing experience.  During the warmer summer months the air-conditioning system delivers plenty of cool air.

Fact is that the majority of charter operators in Australia utilize decades old aircraft. Our aircraft is new, modern and beautiful!
