Obviously we simmers have an alternative: Take a suitable plane from YAYE...

... and seconds after takeoff the first rock can be seen.

Well, the other bunch as well...

Entering inbound base point at 4000 ft.

After turning back and climbing to 4500 ft this is the "outbound" leg, for those tourists sitting on the left.

Then following Kata Tjuta road...

While turning back the descend to 4000 ft. is mandatory.

On base to runway 31 the "city" of Yulara can be seen.

You can strech your legs on the short stopover before we go on.

A top class tour around the rocks Gerold.

I did a flight in  Cessna 207 VH-UAA back in '83, worst flight I ever had because of the turbulence.

We were on a bus tour and later that evening one of the party said how ill they had felt and then virtually everybody else owned up to feeling the same.

Uh, that is a kind of trip report I would not expect - espeacially not from that area. You inspire me to a little request:

Hey Gerold. Loved the tour and loved not feeling the effects of the tour. Thanks!

Thanks Rodger. Indeed flying in your own office chair has an advantage...

A very interesting, I might say awesome tour of the Ayers Rock region. I wasn't aware that there are mandatory routes for scenic flying, too. Now imagine you're a pilot in Ayers Rock and you have to do the same flight thrice a day. Let's all be thankful that we are "only" sim pilots.

You are right Lars. These companies charge you a fortune, but one does not know how much ends with the pilot. Who is doing the same taxi driver job each day...
