Every Child Can Fly

FunFlight provides children who are touched by adversity with joy and inspiration through flight

Who We Are

Remember the childhood dream that you could fly? That one day you might sit in the cockpit of your very own plane? It continues to be one of the most emotive, exciting and timeless aspirations for children. FunFlight is a charity established to organise joy flights for children touched by adversity, and their families.

Our vision ‘is that every child can fly’ and we make this possible for those children and their families who have been touched by adversity.  

Our Flights

This year, there will be two FunFlight Days on Saturday 27 July and Saturday 26 October. At these events, aero clubs, pilots and charities from all over Australia gather together to give children facing adversity and their families the flight of their lives!

The Flight

On FunFlight days, children and their families are taken on a joy flight which usually goes for 15 to 20 minutes in a light aircraft or helicopter giving them the chance to see their local area from a different perspective.

FunFlight Captains

Our FunFlight Captains are local volunteer pilots who meet the minimum requirements set by FunFlight, these standards are higher than those set by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority for private joy flights.

Your local aero club or flying group arrange the pilots, aircraft and flight schedules for the day. Your FunFlight Captains will show you the world from a different perspective and will try to ensure you have the best experience flying in a light aircraft.

Aircrafts

Each FunFlight event will have a range of different aircraft in which FunFlight passengers will experience their flight. FunFlight have minimum standards for aircraft to ensure a safe and enjoyable flight for all passengers. The aircraft usually accommodates a minimum of three passengers in addition to the pilot but this also depends on passenger weights.
