GSL Aviation

GSL Aviation is a north Queensland based airline providing a range of charter, scenic and transfer flights from Cairns and Shute Harbour / Whitsunday Airport to anywhere along the Cape York Peninsula and Gulf of Carpentaria, as well as parts of the Great Barrier Reef and The Whitsundays including Hamilton Island.

Air Queensland.blogspot was fortunate to visit GSL Aviation at Whitsunday Airport some time ago, and if our observation is anything to judge-by, was thoroughly impressed with not only how immaculately clean the aircraft are maintained and particular attention to detail invested by the pilots while conducting daily / pre-flight checks, but the professional nature of the staff. 

At Shute Harbour / Whitsunday Airport, GSL Aviation operates from the main passenger terminal which includes their own check-in counter and seating. Naturally, the terminal is air conditioned to ensure comfort during the warmer months, and a cafe resides to satisfy most appetites.     

To provide a means to uplift and transfer passengers, GSL Aviation operates a modest fleet of fixed-wing and rotary aircraft comprising Cessna 208 Caravans, GippsAero GA-8 Airvans, a single Cessna 206 & Piper PA-31-350 Chieftain, and Robinson R44 helicopters.
