Ayers Rock: Rock Around The Clock! | King Air 350i

Join us tonight, Friday night for an adventure across Australia led by the Legendary GunPilot!

The “Rock Around The Clock” flight sees us departing from the red centre of the Australian Outback in Alice Springs and loosely following the West McDonald Ranges east and then south to the iconic Uluru landmark (formerly called Ayers Rock and more commonly referred to as “The Rock” by many Australians).

Along the way we will land at a historic cattle station homestead, a remote Aboriginal art community, a meteor crater formed approx 140 million years ago, Kings Canyon, a cattle/camel station covering approx 2000 square kms, a large salt pan lake, the Olgas, and finally Uluru at sunset before finishing the flight with a landing (AT NIGHT!) at the airport close to the Uluru tourist resort centre at Yulara.

This flight will definitely bring home to you just how vast and desolate the outback is in Australia (remember that Australia is the same size as mainland USA but has only 1/10th the population ) and why it is defined as the driest continent on the planet.

We really will be flying through the middle of nowhere on this desert trip. During the flight we will be changing the time of day to give a feel for the different colours that can be seen at different times around the clock.
