About Us

Air Central West is based in Longreach and provides reliable charter and tourism services.

Outback Tours, Lake Eyre Flights

Air Central West was founded by Phillip Owens in 1995. The business commenced operations with a single aircraft, the Beechcraft Bonanza, specialising in charter operations and gradually extending into tourism.  Within the last 17 years the client base of Air Central West has included many government and corporate Departments, mining contractors, stock and station agents and tourism organisations . 

With an increase in the demand for reliable air transport, Air Central West increased its fleet with the purchase of a twin engine Beechcraft Baron and also Cessna 210 aircraft. This decision allowed a broadening of services and operations  across Australia.

Phillip Owens has spent most of his life based in areas of western Queensland and  has accumulated over 30 years flying experience.
