Our Bases

We operate from two bases; Cessnock Airport in the Hunter Valley Wine Country and Warnervale Airport on the Central Coast.

We are the only warbird operator permitted to operate from the Central Coast, and are conveniently located close to Sydney, whilst our Cessnock base is only 40 minutes by car from Newcastle.

Depending on which duration flight you choose, flights from either base can take in the Vineyards of the Hunter Valley and the beaches of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Central Coast.
