The Little Wings service is delivered by a team of volunteer pilots and drivers. Our volunteer pilots are highly experienced with a commercial pilots licence, instrument rating, and a minimum of 1,000 hours total flying time. Our volunteer drivers all hold a full drivers licence and exemplary driving record. Volunteers undergo a stringent recruitment and induction process and ongoing training. All volunteers and staff have cleared Working with Children Checks (WWC) and National Police Checks (NPC).
The Little Wings service is conducted in compliance with the Community Service Flight Standards as issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
There are times when our aircraft are unable to perform a mission due to weather conditions or aircraft unavailability. In these instances Little Wings will coordinate a commercial flight for the family, where possible, with accompanying ground transport.
