Terms and conditions

SAFETY

 

All passengers and accompanying guests must follow the directions of Perth Warbirds personnel at all times. 

 

Passengers are required to wear ENCLOSED footwear.

Cameras, mobile phones and all other loose objects are NOT PERMITTED in the cockpit (due to their associated safety hazard). The pilot has the right to terminate the flight immediately should he or she become aware that loose items have been brought onto the aircraft.

If you do not have the GoPro video capture as part of your package and would like to have your adventure flight experience captured on film, please visit our website to purchase this add-on. 

FITNESS TO FLY

Please contact us if you have any concerns regarding your fitness to fly. It is not recommended to fly if you are suffering from a sinus ailment (i.e. a cold).

 

HEIGHT and WEIGHT

 

The maximum passenger sitting height cannot exceed 100cm measured from the top side of the seat when sitting. Generally this is not a problem if you are less than 200cm in height. If you are taller than this, please contact us.

If your weight is more than 115kg please inform us as as soon possible. In any case, the maximum weight of the passenger must not exceed 125kg due to the weight and balance requirements of the aircraft.

Refund policy is strictly in accordance with the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.

CANCELLATIONS / RE-BOOKING

You may cancel and re-book your flight by giving at least 48 hours prior notice. Failure to give such notice may result in forfeit of your booking with no refund available. Exceptions may be given for serious / unforeseeable events.

A flight may be cancelled without refund if any of the following occurs:

  • The passenger fails to arrive at our hangar at least 45 MINUTES before the scheduled departure.

  • The passenger arrives under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or any other state that is deemed to be unfit to fly by the Pilot in Command.

 

GOPRO VIDEO CAPTURE

In the unlikely event that the GoPro fails to capture properly, you will receive a refund only on the the GoPro video capture portion of the purchase.

 

LIMITED CATEGORY AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS

Here at Perth Warbirds safety is our highest priority. Our aircraft is maintained to the highest standard possible by fully qualified aircraft maintenance engineers, and our pilots are approved to conduct adventure flights by the Australian Warbirds Associated Ltd, based on their qualifications and experience.

It is a legal requirement for us to inform you that an adventure flight is not required to meet the same standards as you would normally expect from a flight that carries passengers. This is because the aircraft that is used for our operations is an ex-military type, and as such, it does not have the normal civilian aircraft certification. These types of aircraft are known as Limited Category aircraft. Therefore, there is a risk involved in the operation of these types of aircraft. Please carefully consider the statement below before continuing:

 

WARNING 

 

THE DESIGN, MANUFACTURE AND AIRWORTHINESS OF THE AIRCRAFT USED FOR ADVENTURE FLIGHTS WITH PERTH WARBIRDS PTY LTD IS NOT REQUIRED TO MEET ANY SAFETY STANDARD RECOGNISED BY THE CIVIL AVIATION SAFETY AUTHORITY [CASA].

THE AIRCRAFT IS NOT REQUIRED BY CASA TO BE OPERATED TO THE SAME SAFETY STANDARDS AS AN AIRCRAFT USED FOR REGULAR PUBLIC TRANSPORT OR CHARTER OPERATIONS.

WHEN YOU FLY IN THE AIRCRAFT YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.

 

Passengers must accept this statement by signing an acknowledgment form on the day of flight, prior to being allowed to fly on an adventure flight.

A more detailed briefing about the safety of the aircraft will be given to the passenger before the passenger boards the aircraft.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Perth Warbirds before proceeding.
