Is Air Kimberley formerly King Leopold Air?
Air Kimberley first took to the Kimberley skies back in 1992 as King Leopold Air, a small charter company based on a pastoral station close to its namesake – the spectacular King Leopold Ranges. With the renaming of the King Leopold Ranges in 2020 to the Wunaamin Miliwundi Ranges, the name no longer reflected the values of the business and Air Kimberley was born.
I’m not comfortable in a big aircraft. How will I feel in a small one?
People vary, however experience shows that with greater all-round aerial views and more direct interaction with the pilot, who is also your tour guide, leads to a more enjoyable experience.
Do your tours do a jet boat through the Horizontal Falls?
None of our tours include a jet boat through the Horizontal Falls. We only overfly the Horizontal Falls which makes for spectacular viewing from above! If you would like to do a boat ride, please see our Cygnet Bay Explorer Tour which includes a Sea Safari to experience the Giant Tides.
Will there be commentary during my scenic flight?
Yes, commentary will be provided throughout your scenic flight by your knowledgeable pilot/tour guide. Please feel free to ask them any questions along the way. We also provide a route map and information card for your journey. At Air Kimberley, we provide an educational journey of discovery!
What items can I take on the plane during the flight?
Safety restrictions apply and there are baggage restrictions on light aircraft. The baggage allowance on tours is usually 5 kg per person. Whilst travelling light, we suggest you always take a minimum of sunglasses, hat, water bottle and sunscreen. Swimwear and a bathing towel is also useful as many of our tours offer the chance for a swim. It’s best to pack a small backpack or soft bag and these will be safely stowed in the aircraft’s luggage hold.
Can I take photographs from the plane?
Of course, each passenger has a window seat and the high wing design and retracting undercarriage makes for unrestricted viewing. Both still and video cameras may be used for the ultimate aerial images! Don't forget to pack the spare battery!
I have special dietary requirements. Can these be accommodated on the tour?
Please advise any dietary requirements in advance and we will notify the destinations providing meals and refreshments. With adequate notice most requirements can be met. Please bear in mind that some of the destinations are remote, so the earlier we know the better!
Can I fly if I am pregnant?
Yes you can! For any guests 6 months or more pregnant you will need a certificate from your doctor or midwife clearing you fit to fly!
Can I travel with a new born baby or an infant?
Absolutely! Babies and infants 0-2 years of age are most welcome onboard and can be carried on the lap of a parent or guardian.
Can we change or amend our tour booking?
With adequate notice we will always try our best to accommodate any changes to bookings. However, if you do cancel due to unforseen circumstances you should claim this on your travel insurance. See our terms and conditions for additional cancellation information.
Can we change the tour itinerary?
Our published tours have set itineraries, but we are happy to assist you in planning a tailor-made tour to include any specific destinations.
Do you fly if the weather forecast predicts bad weather?
No, our pilots are very experienced with the local Kimberley conditions and obtain aviation forecasts covering the entire tour route prior to the flights departure. If for some reason we think bad weather will disrupt your tour, then we will be in touch with you prior to departure. We are happy to reschedule or refund any tours cancelled due weather.
