King Leopold Air first took to the Kimberley skies back in 1992 as a small charter company based on a pastoral station close to its namesake – the spectacular King Leopold Ranges. Today the company benefits from an extensive aircraft engineering background and has seen much expansion in both the commercial and leisure tourism sectors. King Leopold Air has its Head Office at Broome International Airport and operational bases at Derby and Cape Leveque.
Experienced pilots are additionally trained as tour guides in order to provide a comprehensive and informative insight into the stunning Kimberley landscape.
Booking office staff are hand picked for their local knowledge and are able to provide valuable assistance in itinerary and tour planning around the Kimberley.
Bookings and enquiries may be made by email, telephone, internet or call into our office at 9 Gus Winckel Rd, Broome International Airport. The office is open 9am till 5pm, 7 days a week.
Flights from Broome depart from the King Leopold Air Terminal.
We operate the largest fleet of GA8 Airvan, Cessna 206, 207 and 210 aircraft in the West Kimberley, which are an ideal aircraft for the Kimberley conditions. These are usually fitted with 5 passenger seats and have a high wing design, which creates greater stability and allows for optimum viewing. These types of aircraft can also cover great distances very quickly, making them ideal for charters and tours into even the most remote and often inaccessible Kimberley regions.
Each passenger has a window seat and a personal headset to listen to the pilot’s commentary. Pilots circle landmarks of interest, so that passengers maximise photo opportunities.
