Lake Eyre

A set of very rare circumstances have combined to fill up Lake Eyre.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence, and many Lilydale pilots are taking the opportunity to fly there and see it.  You can hire one of our planes and fly yourself, or we can take you there.  William Creek is the place to land, and then tour the lake, also known as Kati Thanda.  If you're in a hurry, our PC12's will get you there very quickly.  If you'd prefer a more leisurely approach and an adventure, take an Archer or a Jabiru yourself and take a few days to enjoy the trip.

Summer NOTAC

So far this summer has seen us dealing with very dry conditions and smoke haze. The Yarra Valley has a unique micro-climate and when it's smokey elsewhere, sometimes we're clear, and visa-versa. Don't trust weather cameras, they don't tell an accurate story. Call us before you make any decisions about flying to YLIL, or having a lesson.
