Some facts about your seaplane experience

The Wilga 80 Seaplane: Designed in the 1950’s as an observation aircraft, this plane is perfect for the job. It is stable, slow and boasts better-than-helicopter views! Plus, if you are feeling very adventurous, it is certified to fly with the Doors Off!Built in Poland, this is one of the few Wilga 80’s on floats in the world, and is the only one in Australia. Not only that, this is your only opportunity for a seaplane adventure in Queensland between Gladstone and the Gold Coast!

A Total Adventure: The fabulous thing about a Seaplane is that it opens up a world where no-one else can go. There is no need for airports or runways, just water. No other type of aircraft lets you look down, pick a likely spot on the river and touch down as gracefully as a seabird. (Well, ‘graceful’ like a black swan, not like a pelican!)

Numbers of Passengers: Paradise Seaplanes fly with a minimum of two passengers, or up to three, with the maximum combined passenger weight limited to 200kg.

Age & Agility Requirements: Their oldest passenger to date has been 96 years of age. As long as you are 15kg or more, are relatively mobile and can operate the life vest, you can fly with them. Passengers will get their feet wet, and need to climb a couple of rungs to get into the aircraft. There is no disability access to the river, but ask us how we can assist make suitable arrangements with them.

The Pilots: With thousands of flight hours up their sleeves, you can rest assured you are in safe hands. These guys have a wealth of experience and love what they do.
