Come fly with me, come fly, let's fly away
I suppose he doesn't get paid all that much in terms of money: but the benefits are peachy keen!
The Sydney Seaplanes website tells me that a 30 minute flight over the harbour, northern beaches and Bondi will cost two people $225 each. I think it took this pilot longer to clean and prepare his vessel than to pilot his next flight. He did a thorough job though.
Meanwhile, his buddy was well ahead. Dad and I saw him come in from his trial loop, land, load up his two passengers and then take off towards Manly. With that large blue suitcase, I wonder where they were heading: Cottage Point or the vineyards in the Hunter Valley for a romantic weekend.
We can all fantasise ...
