Fly in comfort in our Cessna Grand Caravan! Travelling to and from Great Barrier Island has never been more modern or comfortable. Travel with Barrier Air to one of our fantastic locations to enjoy some R&R and a laid-back experience. While you’re on your way, why not get the “lay of the land”, enjoy the sights and let our fantastic flight crew give you expert commentary over the aircraft PA system. Our Caravan is a high wing aircraft affording great views below and around the aeroplane. Rather than looking at a large noisy engine on the wing, our PT6A Jet-Prop is situated at the front of the aircraft, taking away the distracting noise and replacing it with a quiet hum and unspoilt views. Being equipped with 12 leather seats and temperature control; this is the most passenger friendly aircraft operating over Auckland City. The beautiful blue waters of the Hauraki Gulf can be seen for miles in all directions. Directly below are first class views of the gorgeous Waiheke Island, Rangitoto Volcano and several other small community islands just off-shore. The Auckland Skyline and Sky Tower is something to behold at sunset! On a sunny day, you will see pods of dolphins playing around the Kayakers paddling in Blind Bay; Whales spouting as they come around Tiritiri Matangi Island. You may even spot the local resident Hammerhead shark gliding below the water at Kaitoki beach as you come into land at Claris airport. If Aviation is your passion, the Cessna Grand Caravan in action is an attraction in itself. Sitting in Row 1, you will have full insight into what our pilots do day-to-day. With a state of the art Glass Cockpit, Navigation systems and weather radar, you will really get the feel of how a life in the blue Hauraki skies can be.
