There is something about flying in small aircrafts that usually freaks people out. One reason might be the single engine. Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that there is only enough space for three to four passengers including the pilot. But little do people know that these small planes provide the best experience when aerial sightseeing in Papua New Guinea.
Sitting right behind the pilot may make some people cringe as they get to see everything the pilot does along with so many complicated buttons. Upon take-off, all you feel is the shaky ride up, but upon looking out the window, a beautiful bird’s eye view of the land below is what makes it all worth it.
The beauty of flying in small aircrafts is that passengers are not too high up in the clouds. On a clear day, passengers will be rewarded with some of the most incredible and fascinating views of Papua New Guinea. With its wild, rugged, sloping and mysterious beautiful land below, it’s a magnificent experience to be seeing it from above.
There is no faster and more comfortable way to travel around Papua New Guinea than by chartered flights or private planes. Whether heading to an isolated valley or to a lone island off the coast, getting there by air is the best option there is. The best thing about chartered flights is that you are allowed to depart whenever you want and on the plane of your choice. Especially when flying privately, this option will avoid connecting stops and unnecessary flyovers. To add to the charm of opting to fly by air, sightseeing from such transportation options remains breathtakingly beautiful.
Another option for seeing the country from an aerial perspective is to use helicopters. Companies such as Heliwest and Sunset Helicopters offer offshore opportunities to get around the country. Helicopter pilots have intensive experience when it comes to mountain flying, making them ideal for the mountainous regions of Papua New Guinea. These pilots, many of whom are from Australia, are familiar with the weather patterns of the country which is a very important aspect when flying helicopters. With such reliable helicopter operators, passengers will be able to enjoy a safe and pleasant sightseeing experience.
Although flying by chartered planes and helicopters may be quite expensive, these options are well worth it with the kinds of views being seen from above. For those people who can afford it, hiring a private jet to get around the country is indeed the best way that is worth your peace of mind to get around the country.
Some of the most majestic locations to see from the air are the Sepik River and Plains, the Tufi Fjords, the Ramu River and Plains, the Wahgi River and Valley, the Owen Stanley Range and of course Mt. Wilhelm, the tallest mountain in the country. With its topography, raw beauty, and sunny islands, aerial sightseeing in Papua New guinea is monumentally awesome and lets passengers develop a deeper appreciation for the country.
