Designed in the 1970’s, the Chieftain remains the workhorse of the Australian skies. The Chieftain enjoys a nine passenger seat layout, two large engines for safety and avionics to allow operation in all weather situations.
All our Chieftains have cloth covered seating and air conditioned cabins for all-year operations. Keep cool in the hottest of days while exploring the Australian outback or on your way to a work location. Most of our fleet can operate into remote areas, including small gravel, grass and dirt airstrips, and are at home at international airports.
