The following are our customers most frequently asked questions. If your question isn’t covered here, please contact us.

Why is the company called King Leopold Air?

King Leopold Air started life as a small charter company based at a pastoral station at the foot of the spectacular King Leopold Ranges. 


I’m not comfortable in a big aircraft. How will I feel in a small one?

People vary, however experience shows that with greater all-round aerial views and more direct interaction with the pilot, who is also your tour guide, leads to a more enjoyable experience.


Will there be commentary during my scenic flight?

Yes, commentary will be provided throughout your scenic flight by your knowledgeable pilot. Please feel free to ask them any questions along the way.  We also provide a route map and information card for your journey.


What items can I take on the plane during the flight?

Safety restrictions apply and there are baggage restrictions on light aircraft. The baggage allowance on tours is usually 5 kg per person. Whilst travelling light, we suggest you always take a minimum of sunglasses, hat, water bottle and sunscreen. Swimwear and a bathing towel is also useful as many of our tours offer the chance for a swim. It’s best to pack a small backpack or soft bag and these will be safely stowed in the aircraft’s luggage hold.


Can I take photographs from the plane?

Of course, each passenger has a window seat and the high wing design and retracting undercarriage makes for unrestricted viewing. Both still and video cameras may be used for the ultimate aerial images!


I have special dietary requirements. Can these be accommodated on the tour?

Please advise your requirements in advance and we will notify the destinations providing meals and refreshments. With adequate notice most requirements can be met. Please bear in mind that some of the destinations are remote, so the earlier we know the better!


Can I fly if I am pregnant?

Yes you can! For any guests 6 months or more pregnant you will need a certificate from your doctor or midwife clearing you fit to fly!


Can I travel with a new born baby or an infant?

Absolutely! Babies and infants 0-2 years of age are most welcome on board and can be carried on the lap of a parent or guardian. 


Can we change or amend our tour booking?

With adequate notice we will always try our best to amend your booking. However, if you do cancel due to unforseen circumstances you should claim this on your travel insurance. See our terms and conditions for additional cancellation information.


Can we change the tour itinerary?

Our published tours have set itineraries, but we are happy to assist you in planning a tailor-made tour to include any specific destinations.


Do you fly if the weather forecast predicts bad weather?

No, our pilots are very experienced with the local Kimberley conditions and obtain aviation forecasts covering the entire tour route prior to the flights departure. If for some reason we think bad weather will disrupt your tour, then we will be in touch with you prior to departure. We are happy to reschedule or refund any tours cancelled due weather.
