Albany Aviation started operating from Albany Airport some 28 years ago with a Twin Engine almost All Weather and 24 hour charter service but commitments to a mining company contract required us to locate that aircraft to the Pilbarra region for some years.
For a number of years we only operated a Single Engine six-seater pressurised Cessna Centurion from Albany but since February 2010 both aircraft now fly again from Albany.
This all-weather charter service is very successful in providing regional companies and governmental bodies with vital air links in WA.
Charter work will mainly be conducted in our twin engine Beechcraft Baron 58 aircraft.
The aircraft is configured for a maximum of 5 passengers and is equipped with modern satellite navigation instrumentation and weather radar. We offer the service to any destination with an airstrip throughout WA as indeed to anywhere in Australia. That means even going to Birdsville is not off the beaten track for us.
With average ground speeds of 350 kph the flight time from Albany to Jandakot or Perth Airport is approximately 1 hour 10 minutes. Kalgoorlie is well under 2 hours.
When you charter our aircraft it’s somewhat like hiring a taxi, without the check-in time (drive park fly) It might be a bit more expensive than taking the bus but we go directly to your destination, saving valuable time and you can take a few friends, colleagues or family with you at no extra charge when fuel and weight considerations permit. Sharing the cost with others often means that the total cost of your trip can be less than with the scheduled airlines.
When you next travel out of Albany please consider if Albany Aviation can assist to make your travel hassle-free, direct and fast as well as pleasurable. It may be a day trip or overnight trip for business or pleasure or that 1, 2 or 3 hour important meeting that would be better served face to face than conducted over the phone.
With our scenic flights and tours of the Great Southern, Albany Aviation is contributing significantly to the local tourist industry as well as providing invaluable service to the business community through its charter operations.
Albany Aviation Pty Ltd is directed by Ian Williams, operating under its own Air Operators Certificate, with your safety and comfort our priority.
