Charter Flights

We offer transfers from Hobart and Launceston Airport directly to Friendly Beaches Aerodrome. Skip the que as our pilots will be waiting your arrival at either airport. Compared to a 3 hour drive, a 40 minute flight is defiantly the preferred method of arriving in Freycinet. All transfer flights include a short scenic of the Freycinet Peninsula and Wine Glass Bay.

Transfers start from just $780.

Fly & Dine with Tiger Adventure Tours Tasmania

We have teamed up with Tiger Adventure Tours Tasmania to offer this unique tour.

Upon landing, you will be treated to a truly Tasmanian dining experience, with three courses of fresh Tasmanian produce and a selection of cheeses and wine all cooked and prepared by a local chef.

Starting from $775 per couple.


Amazing flight and fantastic scenery

“After reading on trip advisor about both the trek (to the wineglass bay lookout and the beach) and people’s disappointment with the view when they got there, we started to research other options. We came across the great reviews for the 45min scenic flight over Wineglass bay and the Freycinet Peninsula with Freycinet Air, called up, asked a few questions and decided to treat ourselves by making a booking a few days in advance. We set the alarm clocks and dragged my teenage girls up early to make the 2hrs and 20mins drive up from Hobart to Freycinet for a 9am take off. Believe you me it was worth it! The views were amazing, the plane was super smooth in the early morning light winds and our pilot, Pascal, was both a great pilot and super informative. We landed with bucket loads of brilliant photos of both Wineglass Bay and the whole peninsula, as well as a lifetime of memories.”

Why choose Freycinet Air


Best views

It’s no secret that an aerial view is often the best way to see an area.

This couldn’t be more true about Wineglass Bay and Freycinet Peninsula.

Even if you have the time and fitness to climb Mount Amos, Freycinet or Graham, you will still only see a fraction of the views experienced on our flights.

Local knowledge

Our pilots all have a vast knowledge of the area.

Not only will they provide commentary of what you are seeing, they are able to answer any questions you may have!

Amazing scenery

Wineglass Bay is often ranked one of the best beaches in Australia.

Passengers are blown away by the amazing coastline that Tasmania’s East Coast has to offer. You will be taking photos the entire time!


Our pilots hold a CASA Commercial Pilots Licence and are all checked at our airport before they are allowed to fly with passengers.

Safety is our number one priority. If weather on the day is unsafe we change the time or day of the booking. If cancellation is necessary due to weather there is no fee!

We can offer suggestions for other activities in the area which aren’t weather dependant.

All of our aircraft adhere to a strict CASA maintance schedule. Regular servicing is conducted by a Licenced Aircraft Maintenance Engineer.

There is a specified time interval (based on either flight hours or years) for when most aircraft parts must be overhauled or replaced. To put it simply – things are replaced well before they are worn out!

There is sufficient legroom for people of just about any height in our aircraft.

While some aircraft provide more space than others, once the seats are adjusted to a suitable position it is a comfortable ride.

Can I rent out the entire aircraft?

We offer the option of paying extra to have the entire aircraft to yourself. People may choose this option to guarentee the best viewing seats, more room to move (with the option of removing seats), or privacy.
