Aussie Group Flights Team: Around my Backyard - St Helens to Launceston

Group flights, Aussie style. Aussie Group Flights Team is the ultimate way to explore the world with your favourite people.

Around my Back Yard is a guided tour from our members of their local area. In this event Ozhero (Paul) will show us around his area of Tasmania East Coast Freycinet.

You are welcome to choose any GA aircraft but I’m suggesting a Helicopter capable of at least 120knots for the event.


Details to follow. Hope you can join us.
