Honouring the Past, Embracing the Future: Nationwest Aviation’s Journey

Welcome to the new Nationwest Aviation website! As we soar to new heights, we want to take a moment to honour our previous blog, a trusty companion that chronicled our adventures anmilestones. Although we couldn’t migrate the old blog to our new site, we’d like to pay homage by sharing some of the highlights from over the years.

Summer at the Abrolhos – January 2021

In January 2021, our blog celebrated the beauty of the Abrolhos Islands during summer. We highlighted the pristine waters, vibrant marine life, and the unique experience of exploring this untouched paradise. The post showcased our commitment to providing unforgettable aerial tours and our passion for the natural wonders of Western Australia.

When School is Back In

As schools reopened, we shifted our focus to travellers without children. This blog entry encouraged adults

to seize the opportunity for peaceful and less crowded scenic flights. We highlighted the benefits of travelling outside school holidays, such as quieter destinations and more personalised experiences. It was a reminder that adventure is always in season, even as the school year begins.

The Beginning of Autumn – March

March brought the enchanting colours of autumn, and our blog captured the changing landscapes from above. We shared tips on the best spots to witness the seasonal transition and emphasised the serenity that comes with autumn flights.

Staying Strong Through the Hard Times and

Now the Indescribable Times

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our resilience was tested further by Cyclone Seroja. This heartfelt post expressed our gratitude for the support of our loyal customers during these unprecedented times. We detailed how we navigated through the dual challenges of a global pandemic and a devastating cyclone, emerging stronger and more determined to

provide exceptional service. Despite the hardships, our community’s support and our team’s unwavering dedication helped us rebuild and continue our mission.



A Year On

One year after Cyclone Seroja, we looked back on our journey with pride and a sense of accomplishment. This blog highlighted our incredible recovery and the exciting milestones we achieved. We spent a memorable season in Kununurra, exploring new destinations and expanding our horizons. Nationwest Aviation was also featured in an episode of Destination WA, showcasing our scenic flights and the beauty of Western Australia to a broader audience. Additionally, we completed two major video shoots—one with Well Strategic and another with Two Palms Media for Tourism Australia—enhancing our promotional materials and sharing our story with the world.

Pretty Little Thing

In a lighter, more whimsical post, we introduced our newest addition, the Airvan GA8 YUA. This entry celebrated the arrival of this versatile and reliable aircraft, enhancing our fleet and expanding our capabilities. The Airvan GA8 YUA symbolises our commitment to continuous improvement and innovation, ensuring we provide the best possible service to our customers. We detailed its features, benefits, and the exciting new opportunities it brings for our scenic flights and tours.

Witnessing History: A New Era of Aviation and Tourism

Our most recent post before the transition to the new site marked the dawn of a new era. We had the incredible opportunity to be in Rome for the launch of Qantas’ Perth to Rome flight. This event was a significant milestone in aviation, bridging Western Australia and Europe in a way that will enhance tourism and connectivity. We shared our excitement about the advancements in aviation technology and the expanding horizons of tourism, setting the stage for our future endeavours.

As we embrace the future, Nationwest Aviation is working hard on our expansion to Geraldton. Over a year on from the establishment of this new base our offerings continue to become even more diverse and show greater depth to the breathtaking region.
