About Us

Nationwest Aviation is a premier Aviation Company operating in tandem with the Nationwest Group of Companies.   


Operating out of Perth Western Australia, Nationwest Aviation has scheduled flights out of Perth Terminals and out of Kalbarri with their sister company Kalbarri Scenic Flights.


Our sister company Kalbarri Scenic Flights was purchased by our company director and Chief Pilot Nathan Gudgeon in 2007 and had previously been flying visitors over the Mid-West region of Western Australia for over 20 years.  


Mid 2018 the family owned and run business, decided to branch out and create Nationwest Aviation. This came about after realising a gap in services for Scenic Flights out of Perth and extended flying tours. While the name Kalbarri Scenic Flights was well known in tourism, the family wanted to create something that was more aligned with their other businesses under the Nationwest Group.   


Nationwest Aviation looks to create a fun and interesting experience while still achieving a highly professional and safe standard of travel for our customers.  



 Nationwest Aviation also offers Charter services and tailored tourism packages.
