Pay’s regularly conduct charters for local businesses, the mining and horse racing industries, state medical contractors and Government agencies. 


Beechcraft Super Kingair 200. The Super Kingair is the mainstay of the mining charter and aeromedical fleets in Australia largely due to its solid construction and extraordinary reliability. The Kingair has a large, comfortable and pressurized cabin and is ideal for both executive transport and crew transfers. Contact Pay’s for more information or a quote on your charter requirements.

Cessna C208B Grand Caravan. The turbine powered Caravan is a modern, air conditioned 14 seat aircraft with superb short field and rough field capabilities. It has an enormous freight carrying capability and excellent range that enables it to serve even the remotest parts of Australia. Contact Pay’s for more information or a quote on your charter requirements.

Single Engine piston aircraft. Pay’s also operate a number of smaller single engine aircraft on charter. They are limited to a maximum of 3 passengers and can only be operated during the day in fine weather conditions.

Aerial Work

Fire Spotting

  • Pay’s Air Charter is a contractor to the NSW Rural Fire Service and Victoria Country Fire Authority to provide a Cessna Caravan for fire spotting and surveillance, and air attack coordination of fire bombing aircraft. Pay’s Cessna 182 is used for the same type of work on an ad-hoc basis.


  • Conducting photography from an aeroplane is the best way to cover a large area quickly and efficiently. The Cessna 182, 185 and Bird Dog are ideal platforms for aerial photography with a high wing and excellent low speed handling.
  • At Pay’s we have organised many photo shoots with local photographers and companies, and all pilots are familiar with Scone and the surrounding countryside. With our experience in this field we are able to judge the best time of day and weather conditions for optimal photography, and will keep you updated accordingly.


  • Cessna C208B Grand Caravan. The 14 seat Caravan is an excellent load carrying aircraft and is capable of operation from short and unprepared airstrips. With its high wing it is also excellent for scenic flights and aerial observation/reconnaissance.
  • Cessna 182. The 182 is a 4 seat high wing aircraft and is very cost effective for aerial work missions of short duration. Pay’s 182 is equipped with government agency radios for firefighting support, and a GPS tracking system that can be monitored from the ground.
  • Cessna 185. The Cessna 185 is suited to operations from unprepared and short airstrips. Both of Pay’s 185’s have been used extensively in remote parts of Australia for insect control, aerial baiting and observation.
  • Cessna 305 Bird Dog. The tandem seating arrangement of the Bird-Dog and excellent low speed handling make it the ideal platform for aerial observation and aerial photography. The windows are hinged at the top and fold inwards to enable unrestricted views from either side.


Established in 2010 to service local charter requests, Pay’s Air Charter has quickly grown to be a major charter provider to government agencies and corporate clients all over Australia. Starting with one full time pilot and a twin Cessna 310. Pay’s now operate a range of single and multi-engine aircraft. In 2013 Pays started operating a 14 seat turbine powered Cessna 208 Grand Caravan and have since added the Beechcraft Kingair- a pressurized multi engine turbine aircraft to the list of aircraft available for charter. With 60 years of aviation experience, the Pay’s Group has a comprehensive safety and management system and is a key provider to government agencies for fire suppression and support, oil spill management and provision of medical services and non-critical patient transport. Pay’s ongoing commitment to safety has resulted in ISO9001 quality system, AS4801 OH&S management system and ISO14001 Environment management system certification.
