Aussie Group Flights Team: Bush Flying - Argentina and Chile

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

Join us as we fly from Las Heras in Argentina through some amazing mountainous terrain to Chacabuco in Chile.

You will need a bush plane capable of climbing to over 17,500’ and set down in small areas. The Freedom Fox is perfect for the event. There will be short field landings on mountains and snow landings along with many other challenging areas.

Details to follow. Hope you can join us.
