About Us

Palm Beach Operations

Sydney By Seaplane and SeaWing Airways (www.seawing-airways.com.au) are trading names of Krug Agencies Pty Ltd ABN: 18 000 066 606.

Our Palm Beach operation has seen our seaplane business servicing this area since 2001. Steve Krug and Jenny Belfield operate the business full-time, having established it in 1996.  The service that our customers expect and receive is evidence of this commitment and dedication.

We are proud holders of Air Operators Certificate number S541688 –  issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.  Our safety and compliance record is exemplary, as will be evidenced when you choose to fly with us.

Chief Pilot

Steve Krug is your Captain on every flight.  We do not employ other pilots.  This gives us the certainty that we need to ensure that our aircraft is operated to the highest standards at all times.

Experience:  Steve has been flying continuously since 1974 and commenced water flying in 1985.  He has logged more than 22,500 flying hours in total, and of that,  approximately 19,500 hours have been in command of seaplanes and flying boats.   He has conducted more than 40,000 water landings/take-offs during that time.

Our Aircraft:

Our magnificent De Havilland Beaver seaplane is amphibious which means that not only do we land and take-off on water, we can also land and take off at normal airports.

Our seaplane can legally carry up to 7 persons, however we are weight limited, so 4 to 6 passengers is more common.

Our beautiful seaplane has bubble windows and comfortable, clean leather interior. The cabin is light and airy, with an extended cabin which has additional windows behind the rear seating area, providing even more light and space to enhance your flight experience.

At the end of each day operating in and around Palm Beach and Rose Bay we fly to Bankstown Airport where we lower the undercarriage to land on the runway – then at our maintenance base, we spend 2 hours washing off the salt and giving her a thorough spruce-up in readiness for the next days’ flying.

Sydney By Seaplane’s Safety Record

The deHavilland Beaver amphibious seaplane is meticulously maintained and has constantly been upgraded to offer comfort while experiencing our unique flights.

We take pride in our high standards of service and our safety and compliance record over 20 years of operation. Our experience and attention to detail will be evident when you choose to fly with Sydney By Seaplane.

Steve and Jenny look forward to welcoming you on board their beautiful deHavilland Beaver amphibian.
