About us

We are now back in Australia! and 100% Australian owned!

The Downunder Pilot Shop is now owned by Flight Experience with a new HQ at 173-179 Broadway, Ultimo.

Started as a mail order business by a young pilot in Cairns, Australia in 2001.

A year or so later the operation outgrew the garage and due to the logistics of mail order it was decided to move across the Tasman to NZ.

The first retail shop was opened 2003 in Ahuriri, Napier with a second shop shortly after in Rosebury, Sydney which later moved to Darling Harbour.

The Downunder Pilot Shop now has the largest range of aviation gear in Australasia with 1000's of products available online and in store.
