What you’ll see….

During a Mount Isa scenic flight with NTAS, shortly after departure, you will overfly Mount Isa to view the township and take in the grand scale of the main Mount Isa Mines (MIM) operation that the town is famous for. It really is a sight to behold. From there, you’ll venture north to the George Fisher mine and then further on to see if you can spot any freshwater crocodiles from overhead Lake Moondarra. Looking back towards the township, and taking in some amazing terrain, you’ll then fly back for a smooth landing. Each flight takes around 20 minutes.


Departing from….

Mount Isa Scenic flights with NTAS are based at Mount Isa Airport, which is around a 5-minute drive from the town centre. Simply meet your pilot at Gate 7 (which is next to the Marker Aviation hangar on the General Aviation apron) and they will escort you to the aircraft for your flight. Please do not bring any baggage with you to the airport. There are no storage facilities available and we cannot take baggage on the aircraft during our scenic flights. Your NTAS pilot will brief you on some safety procedures as well as the things to look out for while in the air.


What’s the cost?

Mount Isa Scenic Flights with NTAS require a minimum booking of 4 passengers. Each passenger is provided with ear plugs and bottled water. The cost of the flight when booked directly through NTAS is $159 inc. GST per person. If you would like to venture further to see other things, book flight with less than 4 people or simply stay in the air longer, this can be arranged for an additional cost. If that’s the case, please contact us for a custom scenic flight quote.
