Kakadu Air Services Pty Ltd, known as Kakadu Air, is proudly run and owned by local Territorians.  With more than 36 combined years of experience in the scenic flight industry, Kakadu Air promises to show their passengers the best of Kakadu National Park.


Kakadu Air was founded in the 80’s by Bob and Ngaire McDonald, who both held the Kakadu National park close to their heart.  After their retirement in July 2018, Kakadu Air changed hands and was purchased by four passionate Northern Territory residents.
