Perform daring stunts in the skies above Airlie Beach during a guided tour in a former Soviet Military Trainer. Join a skilled pilot, climb on board the Yakovlev Yak-52, and take to the wild blue yonder during an exhilarating flight that lets you dip, dive, and soar above Queensland's scenic coast.

Meet your knowledgeable guide at Whitsunday Airport and participate in a safety briefing. Absorb fascinating information about the Yakovlev Yak-52, including stories from its past lives which were dedicated to training civilian sport enthusiasts and military pilots. Then, without further ado, climb on board and coast the runway. Feel your heart soar as you lift off the ground and arc past the place where Pioneer Bay crashes into the sandy spit of Airlie Beach.

After achieving cruising altitude, launch your aerial adventure. Marvel at the way your expert pilot performs aerobatic manoeuvres like dives and barrel rolls that leave you clamoring for more. Note the way the Yak-52's powerful motor thunders across the sky, reaching speeds of up to 186 miles per hour (300 km/h). During your graceful descent into Shute Harbour, soak up unparalleled views of Conway National Park to the southeast and Dryander National Park to the north.
