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.

Reece our pilot was very knowledgeable. Flight took us over the Ord, carr boyd ranges, lake argyle & the bungles. We were given lots of info & history. The walk up to cathedral gorge was not too taxing even tho it was 35°, the gorge is spectacular & well worth the trip.

The flighf left Kununurra.....flew over Lake Argyle and down to the Bungle Bungles. Absolutely breathtaking, so good to see this by air. After landing we were met by our ground crew (Bruce,) who took us for a 3 km walk through the domes and cathedral gorge. So good to walk through the Bungles, their enormity and incredible formation.

We took a morning flight to the Bungle Bungles. The pilot Shane was very good. We also took a helicopter ride through the bangles, which was wonderful. The highlight for me was the walk to Cathedral Gorge, which was spectacular. The ride home was also very interesting and we flew over the Argyle diamond mine and Ord River.

The flight was interesting, comfortable and the views of the Bungle Bungles and the surrounding landscape was great. Our pilot Jack was excellent and very informative. Giving one of us a front seat - in the cockpit was an added bonus and thoroughly enjoyed. We would recommend this adventure to all.
