Lake Macquarie scenic flights
In addition to our general charter flight operations, Blue Sky Airways operates a seaplane air charter base on Lake Macquarie, just to the south of Newcastle, in conjunction with our partner business Joy Air.
The seaplane operates from two main locations, Warners Bay on the northern side of the lake, and Rafferty’s Resort to the south of Belmont Airport. The sand islands of Swansea Channel are stunning to see from the air with the sun shining on them during a seaplane joy flight, and depending on the time of year whales can be seen off the coast on their annual migration.
As well as scenic flights, the seaplane can take people on lunch charters, with a picnic provided at a secluded destination.
