Here's how Wide Bay Air Charter is managing the COVID-19 situation.


Like all responsible businesses, The RFC is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely.

Both the aviation and tourism sectors have been hit extremely hard by the pandemic and our business has been no exception.

However, in concert with our amazing staff, we have made the conscious decision to maintain operations, albeit in a restricted way... rather than close the doors and become yet another recipient of government assistance.

That said, we have had to curtail our activities somewhat and that means at the present time, scenic flights are unfortunately not available. 

Flying Training is still available as is Charter and Aerial Work as these activities represent training and essential services respectively.


To best protect our crew and clients during the pandemic, Wide Bay Air Charter is adopting the following measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Increased cleaning and sterilisation of aircraft between flights;

  • Offering surgical face masks for passengers to be used if desired;

  • Ensuring that staff and passengers are made aware of the importance of not attending our business premises or boarding aircraft if they are feeling unwell.


Thank you to our wonderful customers and staff for persevering with us throughout this period of restrictions. You can rest assured that we have your health and wellbeing in mind and we will be doing whatever we can to keep you safe.

Your continued support is helping  keep a small Queensland business alive and this is greatly appreciated.

Our full suite of operations will be restored just as soon as we are able.
