Basic Safety Considerations:

  • All passengers are allowed to embark at the pilot’s discretion. The pilot’s say is final in all cases.
  • Seat-belts are to be worn at all times whilst the aircraft is in motion.
  • Life jackets must be worn at all times while the aircraft is in flight above water.
  • Passengers may be refused boarding for any reason, but particularly if their presence/condition places the safety of other passengers, the pilot and/or the aircraft at risk.
  • Smoking is NOT permitted anywhere on or around the aircraft.
  • Alcohol and other illicit drugs may NOT be consumed on or around the aircraft. We remind passengers that they embark at the pilot’s discretion and passengers known to be intoxicated will be refused carriage.
  • Flammable or explosive goods, items and/or devices are strictly NOT permitted anywhere on or around the aircraft.

All Regional Air Scenic Flights are conducted in accordance with the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (CASR). So just as if you were taking a flight on a commercial airliner, there will be the obligatory safety talk, including “how to deploy your life jacket”. Seat-belts are to be worn at all times whilst the aircraft is in motion and Life-Jacket pouches are to be worn at all times whilst the aircraft is in motion over water.

We thank you in advance for your consideration and co-operation.
