Sydney Skyline and Harbour

Richard Hirst flys with Sydney Air Tours

This morning Sydney Air Tours had the great privilege of taking Richard Hirst over our Sydney Harbour and some of our famous beaches. Richard Hirst aka “Hirsty” is one of Australia’s leading landscape photographers. Hirsty has lived by the beach in Sydney all his life and has been photographing for over 30 years. He captures all times of the day and focusses on showing the extraordinary scenes nature delivers in a new light, not seen by most.

Today Hirsty expanded his repertoire by flying above his familiar Sydney and take some truly remarkable Sydney photos from a totally different perspective.

We have published a few of these fantastic photos here

Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice

This year winter solstice is on Saturday 21 June with 8:51 pm: The time that the Sun is furthest north. After 21 June the days start becoming longer and night time shorter.

In ancient Europe the winter solstice (in December in the northern hemisphere) was a time of celebration. The Romans had a week-long celebration called Saturnalia during which all wars had to stop and courts did not try criminals. Later this festival became Dies Natalis of Sol Invicti or the Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun celebrated on 25 December each year.

In many countries the seasons are fixed in reference to the four astronomical turning points so that we could take the start of winter from the day of the solstice. In Australia, however, the seasons traditionally start on the first of the appropriate month so that winter has already begun on 1 June. This fits in well with our weather for it takes a while for the ground and the oceans to come into equilibrium with the minimum of heat received from the Sun at this time. The coldest days hence tend to be in the middle of July and so in the middle of the three-month winter period.

So from here on till the 21st Dec, the days are getting longer.

Winter flying

Winter flying

Australia is now officially in winter. For those of us who live in Sydney however know just what wonderful autumn weather we have had. The skies have been clear and azure blue while light winds have tempted many aviators to have a fly in and around the Sydney basin.

What people many not realise is that this time of the year presents perfect flying conditions. Our weather is generally influences by a large high over the Australian continent and that creates wonderful smooth flying conditions. The aircraft cabins are warm and inviting without them being overly hot – which sometimes happens in Summer.

We invite you to take advantage of these wonderful clear days and the fun of Winter flying.

Kiama & Blow Hole

Kiama and South Coast; Sydney Harbour Scenic flights

I took the opportunity over this long-weekend to test and review two of what will surely be our most popular Sydney tours. I tried to combine the Sydney Harbour Scenic and the Kiama and South Coast flights and reviewed a few options on how we could do this with consideration of the weather and traffic conditions at Sydney Kingsford-Smith airport. After some discussions with Mitch, our ever eager and willing pilot, we decided that our best plan would be to head south to Wollongong and Kiama – taking as many photographs along the way and then heading north over the coastline and requesting a clearance to enter controller airspace approaching Sydney Heads.

Weather wise the day did not start off brilliantly due to scattered rain. Earlier reports had also indicated there had moderate turbulence but, as has been my experience lately, the weather started to clear early afternoon. And by the time Mitch and I took off from Bankstown, the weather had improved considerably. The tour Gods are smiling on us! 🙂

After heading south and approx 25 mins later we were overhead Wollongong airport.

Only 4 mins later we were over Kiama and we got lucky again as the sun started shining just overhead the township and the famous blow hole. What was striking about the local area is the deep iridescent green of the landscape – the real-life scenery looked as though it had been photoshoped. People are just going to love this flight.

I have placed more photos of this flight in our Image Gallery just under the “Kiama and South Coast” title.

Anzac Day 2014

We wish our clients and staff a happy and peaceful Anzac Day in quiet reflection of those how have scarified so much to protect our way of life. Anzac Day 2014.
