The Hinterland Difference: Beyond a Regional Airline

In Australia, commercial passenger transport is divided into regular passenger transport (RPT) and charter operations. RPT represents the highest standard issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, a standard met by all major airlines.

Among small airplane operators, only five in Australia meet this rigorous RPT airline standard. Hinterland Aviation is proudly one of them. This distinction matters: according to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, the accident rate per million departures for charter operations is significantly higher than that for RPT operations in small airplanes.

Meeting the RPT standard means Hinterland Aviation adheres to stringent safety management systems, regular pilot training and evaluations, and comprehensive maintenance and reliability monitoring. We don’t just meet these standards; we exceed them, offering you peace of mind and exceptional service. Our approval to sell ticketed airline services is a testament to our commitment to excellence.

Choose Hinterland Aviation for your charter needs and experience the difference of flying with a leader in operational safety and professional service.
