Sydney Skydivers Pacific Aerospace PAC 750XL VH-XLC at CQ Airports Ferrying South

Late on Sunday 10 March, the (sometimes) Central Queensland-based Sydney Skydivers Pacific Aerospace PAC 750XL VH-XLC was noted ferrying South, presumably to New South Wales.

After operating out of Innisfail in recent weeks, VH-XLC departed there and called into Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast), Rockhampton and Gayndah Airports while heading South.

On Monday 11 March, VH-XLC was seen flying in New South Wales, looking to be heading towards Wilton Airfield where the Sydney Skydivers operation is based.

Of interest, VH-XLC has spent some time over the last couple of years based at Bowen Airport operating for the relatively new company Airlie Beach Skydivers - as shown above.

Airlie Beach Skydivers (WEBSITE HERE) has an office in Airlie Beach and busses thrill-seekers to Bowen to board their aircraft before jumping out over the beautiful Whitsundays including beach landings!

The company also currently uses the smaller Privately owned Cessna 182P VH-RYZ for parachuting operations out of Bowen Airport.
