Special Offers for the Holiday Season

To celebrate the festive season and my shiny new AOC I have put together some great deals for people looking for Scenic Flights or Joy Flights or Aerobatic Flights from Jandakot Airport.

Experience the thrill of a 30min flight with Aerobatics over the Warnbro sound for just $175

"We will take off from Jandakot and fly out over Fremantle before heading south along the coast over Rockingham to Warnbro, with Garden Island on our right you can experience Barrel Rolls, Loops, Flats Spins and Hammerhead Turns and much more. Then we head back up the coast and return to Jandakot via Cockburn and Bibra Lake. You get to choose how many Aerobatics we do and how many G's you feel, take it easy or hang onto your lunch!"

Ok, here is the log from my Garmin GPS Watch, it shows my heartrate and pace during the event.

Aerobatic Flights at Jandakot Airport with RolfAir

CASA have finally approved my AOC. It means I am now able to offer Aerobatic and Scenic flights to members of the general public from my base at Jandakot Airport. I am in the process of getting my new website up and running, the old one is there at the moment and is, er, basic.

It has been ages since I last flew at Serpo. The weather was no good for Bakewell this weekend (after a great run the last couple of months) but it looked OK, if a little strong for Serpo. I rang the owners to confirm there were no easily frightened animals in the landing paddock and got the OK to fly there on Sunday.
Sure enough the winds were W to SW at between 15 and 25 knots. It was a little lively for the fun at times, and I was very careful not to go anywhere I was not absolutely sure I would get back from. I had a fun fly and that is what it is all about. I had performance envy as the boys on the Stings could actually explore the ridge.
I am reminded to replace the bungies on the fun, I'm sure there would be another 5 knots of penetration if I could stop the sail flapping so badly. I miss my climax.

Considering the ridiculously small amount of effort I put into this panorama it is amazing.

And here I am getting thrown around in the Fun...
