Charter & Aerial Work

Established in 2016, FAST Aviation is the only air charter company that is Northern Rivers owned and operated.

We are authorised by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority to provide all-weather day & night air charter services throughout Australia. Our Chief Pilot has studied aviation safety at Masters Degree level, and we have embraced and utilise safety management systems that are well in excess of the regulatory requirements.

We voluntarily offset all of our aviation fuel carbon emissions through Greenfleet. This cost is absorbed by our business and is not passed on to our clients.


Get there on time without the hassle of major airports & go where the airlines can’t.


We can transport your freight to anywhere in Australia.


The best way to see the outback, Uluru & more!

Where Do We Operate?

While we are based at Lismore, we are conveniently located to operate charter flights from nearby Ballina/Byron Airport, gateway to popular Byron Bay, and also from the Casino, Grafton & Gold Coast Airports.

We understand the role that aviation plays in regional Australia, and we have the ability to fly into most suitable landing areas, including country and station airstrips. Through years of experience in the industry, we have built a network of colleagues around regional New South Wales and Queensland, which allows us to provide charter solutions to clients in many locations.
