Like the people in the previous review I booked for my father to have a flight on 3rd Jan but 2 days after booking they had a plane crash resulting in 1 fatality and the pilot in a serious condition. They are not returning any phone calls or answering emails so I am now unsure what happens. I would expect... More

We bought a flight voucher November 2013 for $370. Before we got around to book a flight, they had an accident that resulted in 2 deaths in December 2013. ( the plane crashed into the ocean ) We contacted the company earlier this year to find out what would happen to the voucher we bought. The owner/manager, Geoff initially told... More

Never got round to doing this but was well sign posted and easy to get to and didn't sound too expensive.

I have done 2 aerobatic flights with Tiger Moth Joy Rides and both times they have been truly bucket-list experiences that I will remember forever! Not only are you flying in a beautiful old tigermoth biplane, but you wear the leather jacket and goggles to complete the picture! It's not just the flight that makes the experience so great -...

Definitely an experience of a lifetime! I loved every minute of it, from the time my pilot, Jimmy, prepped the tiny, tiny plane to the actual aerobatics of barrel rolls and loop-d-loops to the chillax scenic flight where Jimmy pointed out interesting sights.

Thank you for your review. The Gold Coast certainly does look stunning from the air (flying straight for the scenery and upside down for the aerobatics) while the open cockpit gives you an unrestricted view. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your flight with us and the aerobatics gave you an adrenalin rush, they certainly are exciting. What an... More
