About Us

ABOUT 'A KUBE AVIATION'

The company

Andrew Kube started A.Kube Aviation Pty Ltd in August 2013. He is the owner of the Company.

This company has a partnership with ‘Wrightsair’ from William Creek. Wrightsair's 34 years of experience in the outback add valuable knowledge to this burgeoning flying business. The AOC is under 'LA & AM Matthews' - C 5903012

The history

The Kube family has a rich aviation heritage. Andrew’s father (Don) became interested in flying as he attended school and boarded in Nhill (1942 – 45) during the war years.

Don flew most of his life and Andrew was always an eager passenger whenever possible. They flew together in Western Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland and South Australia. So before he obtained his licence in 1996, he had seen vast areas of Australia from the air.

Andrew learned to fly while living in Mount Isa in North West Queensland. He was working in education and used his piloting skills as he worked amongst the remote Indigenous and station communities.

In 2011 a Cessna 210 was purchased. It was imported from USA – flown over the Pacific Ocean by the legendary Jim Hazleton. It’s a 1980 model with very low airframe hours with an updated engine and avionics upgrades, which make it an ideal touring aircraft.

In Dec 2012 Andrew’s family left outback Qld and returned to the family farm near Jeparit in Victoria’s Wimmera. Andrew had accrued over 1000 hours flying in outback conditions and then in early 2013 obtained his Commercial Pilot's licence with Hugh Brownlee from the Wimmera Aero Club. Shortly after Andrew formed a partnership with ‘Wrightsair’ from William Creek and is working under their Air Operator's Certificate.

The mission

I’m following a passion and love for flying that I would love to share with others. From the air everything looks different and your perspective changes. Flying is a safe, relaxing way to travel long distances and an interesting way to see from the air familiar sights that you have seen from the ground.”

What does A Kube Aviation bring to the Aviation industry?  “We bring generations of aviation experience, people skills and an appreciation of all that our early flying pioneers have done to make aviation the incredibly safe industry that it is today". 

The future

The team is growing - now with a trainee maintenance engineer and stand-by pilots and aircraft. We are ready to take you and your party wherever you dream to go.

A Kube Aviation as a business is new and fresh – but draws on a rich experience in aviation.

  

 

The Aircraft

 

VH – KUA is a Cessna 210 Centurion (above). It has 6 seats including the pilot. A Cessna 210 carries 5 passengers with limited baggage or 1-4 passengers with more legroom and more baggage. This aircraft is ideal for the long distance flights.

The C210 can just about go and land anywhere, with good speed and comfort. It is as fast as many twin-engine aircraft, can carry a good load but uses much less fuel than a twin-engine aircraft – saving you money.  It’s 6-cylinder 520 cubic inch turbo charged engine gives great performance; cruising at speeds up to 170knots (315 kmh). The retractable landing gear and high wing make it excellent for photography and viewing the sights.

VH-CBV (top shiny aircraft) is an authentic and original Cessna. It is smaller and enables 2 - 3 passengers to travel at reasonable rates. This beautiful, 1960 model C172B has had a complete refurbishment including a new engine. Travel on shorter trips in retro style!
