Kirkhope Aviation

Welcome to 2013….bound to be another great year for Kirkhope Aviation
We are doing generally charter at the moment and booking holiday tours for 2013. Don’t forget the early bird catches the worm…so book soon and or pass the information to your friends. Our planes are raring to fly. Our website has been updated with new tour inforamtion and some of those are listed below. The front page highlights the various tours and the detail is under the “holiday tours” tab. Available dates and prices are at the bottom of each detailed tour page.
Our websites
The website www.kirkhopeaviation.com.au has been revamped to make the ‘holiday tours” section more user-friendly. You are also able now to click on individual tours and print off itineraries. We are currently in the process of revamping our online inquiry and booking forms which will make them simpler to use.
Tours for 2013
The best way to cure post holiday blues is to book another holiday! Our successful “Lake Eyre” tour is still listed as we believe it is a great three day outback experience regardless of whether Lake Eyre has water. This tour is called the “Taste of the Outback ” tour and there are over 12 departure dates throughout the year.
We are offering a 4 day Tasmania, King Island and Flinders Island tour and a “Discover South Australia” tour which includes Lake Gairdner , Gawler Ranges and sea lions. Click on Facebook link above to see pictures of our last trip to the sea lions. Here is a passenger comment…”Super weekend to Lake Gairdner, Gawler Ranges and Sea Lions, looking forward to a Kangaroo Island trip 2013″
Both these trips are scheduled during Feb, March and April. Our longer Kimberley and Cape York trips are towards the middle of the year

Our charters
We have been assisting the DSE recently in transporting staff around for the massive fires currently burning. We also are doing some regular “Fly in Fly Out” FIFO work moving drilling staff down to Devonport each week in the KingAir. We have also done a number of flights for organ transplant teams and recently flew to Hobart with some survival gear for the stranded yachtsman in Bass Strait.

Kirkhope Aviation operates private charter air tours out of Moorabbin Airport, Melbourne, in the comfort of a superbly maintained twin engine aircraft that allows travelers to select their own flight schedules to travel when they want. From one day golf trips to spectacular golf courses in Tasmania and Bass Straight, transfers to the Hotham ski fields or weekends at luxury bush safari resorts in the Gawler Ranges, Kirkhope Aviation offers a range of pre packaged travel tours or can even tailor trips to suit travelers interests. In addition to their existing piston fleet of planes, Kirkhope Aviation now offers a turbine pressurized 11 seat aircraft that caters to corporate charter flights, allowing executives to travel in style to their next business meeting.
