Charter Flights

The Hinterland Aviation Difference

Major clients in tourism, electrical, mining and government sectors choose Hinterland Aviation because of our commitment to operational safety and timely professional service. We are extremely passionate and proud of what we do, and we are confident that this will be evident when you fly with us. We are focused on maintaining consistently high levels of safety and service delivery.

The difference between a charter operator and a regional airline

Commercial passenger transport across Australia is categorised into regular passenger transport (RPT) and charter operations.  The RPT standard is the highest approval that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority issues and for which all our major airlines are required to meet.

However, amongst the small aeroplane category only five operators in Australia meet the higher RPT airline standard. Hinterland Aviation is one of those five operators proudly meeting this higher standard. According to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, the accident rate per million departures is three and half times higher for charter operators in comparison to RPT operations in small aeroplanes.

This higher standard requires Hinterland Aviation to adopt many additional programs, some of which includes safety management systems, human factors training, pilot training and checking every six months, and more comprehensive systems of maintenance including reliability monitoring. At Hinterland Aviation we are very proud of our commitment to meeting and exceeding these standards and our approval allows us to sell ticketed airline services.
