Aviair (previously Slingair) was established in 1984 and has grown to become the first choice for scenic air tours of the magnificently beautiful Kimberley region of Western Australia.

With over 30 years' experience in remote outback aircraft operations, our personalised service will ensure your fixed wing scenic air tour, charter flight, or air transfer are completed in comfort and style. Our tailored air safaris and fly drive tours showcase famous Kimberley attractions, including the Bungle Bungles in the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park, Lake Argyle, Mitchell Falls, King George Falls and the Argyle Diamond Mine.

Aviair solely operates the Cessna 208 Caravan, which it introduced into the Kimberley in 1994. The Cessna 208 Caravan is a turbo prop, fully air-conditioned, high wing, PA equipped aircraft. The aircraft offers a centre aisle, greater legroom and headroom than any other scenic flight aircraft in the Kimberley. In addition the safety and reliability record of this aircraft type is one of the highest in its class, thereby maximising passenger safety and comfort. Aviair is proud to operate the youngest fleet of scenic tour aircraft in the Kimberley.

In addition to charters, tours and remote transfers, Aviair is also a fundamental bridge between remote communities and larger towns. Aviair also provide freight transport, mining support, survey, search and rescue, emergency extraction, and mail services to remote communities.

Aviair is a subsidiary of the Aviator Group, a general aviation specialist with operations around Australia. Aviair operates 8 Cessna 208 Caravan turbo prop aircraft each with a 10 to 13 passenger seat capacity. The company's head office is in Kununurra with a base in Broome.

Aviair offer 8 air safari tour options of which 6 include spectacular views of the Bungle Bungles; all provided by young Cessna 208 Caravan turbo prop aircraft. You can also combine a scenic air safari with a ground tour and helicopter flight.

Aviair offers a comprehensive program that includes stunning views of Lake Argyle, the Argyle Diamond Mine (may include a ground tour); Kununurra Icons; Kimberley Panorama flight which takes you over the famous King George Falls and the spectacular Mitchell Falls.

Aviair has experiences to suit any time frame and budget.

Good commentary, smooth take off, flight and landing. Modern well maintained and clean aircraft. We were very pleased to actually get a flight in mid November. Everything was made easy. The veiw is a must. The next day on the way to Fitzroy Crossing it became obvious just how far we had flown the previous day

I took the Bungle Bungle flight with Aviair from Kununurra as I stayed there for some days. Good view to the Lake Argyle from the air and then an amazing flight over Purnululu NP. Friendly staff an pilots. Highly recommended to do this to have a good view from top to the Bungle Bungle.

We had a great flight over the Bungle Bungles and can recommend this as a fantastic way to see this incredible rock formations. The colour bands on the rocks are marvellous to look at from above and the sense of the huge space and distances of this region, that you get from the air, is incredible. Pilot was excellent!!

Had my mum here visiting from NSW, the Bungle Bungle flight was the perfect way to show her this beautiful place we live in, stunning views.

We did a tour with Aviair just over a week ago when we were in Kununurra and it was an excellent experience. We did the 2 hour Bungle Bungle Adventure which was great as we are going to be hiking in the Bungle Bungles a week or so later as part of our drive around Australia. The pilot was great... More

We took the two hour flight over Lake Argyle and the Bungle Bungle Range. We were picked up from our accommodation and when all arrived inside the terminal we were introduced to our pilot, a young Kiwi man who was excellent.
