Port Douglas, Cairns, and Mareeba

In this chapter the Out-n-Back crew make their way through the far north of Queensland.

In Cairns, we learn about preparing for remote flying while hearing a harrowing story from local pilot Barry Dawson.

We speak to Sally Scott, Chief Pilot at North Queensland Aero Club in Mareeba. Sally talks about advice around making the right decisions early.

We also speak with flight instructor David Curtis. David shares his keys to success when pre-planning a trip in remote Australia.
