Overview

Adventure Flight Co Melbourne & Great Ocean Road offers a variety of aerial adventures on Victoria's Surf Coast and 12 Apostles: Combat Aerobatic Warbird Flights 12 Apostles Open Cockpit Biplane Flights Great Ocean Road 12 Apostle Scenic Flights This is your chance to live the fighter pilot dream. Our powerful WW2 style prop fighter aircraft will have you pulling over 4 times the force of gravity at speeds over 300 km/hr in real life dogfighting manoeuvres. Choose between an Aerobatic Flight or go head to head with a two aircraft in full on Combat Flight! Fly side by side with a friend or loved one in an open cockpit biplane like the aces of yesteryear over the world famous 12 Apostles. Flights depart from Peterborough Airport, right near London Bridge. Stick your head in the breeze flying like it was meant to be. Leather helmet and goggles included! Wing your way down the Great Ocean Road, past Torquay, Bells Beach, Lorne and more. See parts of the Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road only seen from the air. A return trip from Melbourne to the 12 Apostles takes well over 7 hours, see more in less time with a 12 Apostles scenic flight.

This aerobatic and simulated dogfighting experience was exhilarating! The optional video ensures the memories remain fresh. If you have any concerns regarding possible vertigo issues, then discuss this with the very capable pilots! Highly recommended!

We went on a Airvan flight to the Cumberland River. We really enjoyed the whole experience, particularly flying past the Aireys Inlet lighthouse - it looks wonderful from above. We felt very safe and comfortable with Anatole as pilot.
