John Dyer

Managing Director

John grew up in country Victoria where his first exposure to golf was out in the back paddock with his mum’s driver. From there a love of the game grew but not much has changed to his form. Flying has been a big part of John’s life since he was a boy, with many flights with his father around outback Australia. This led to John getting his own license and taking the reins at Air Adventure in 2006. He is passionate about enriching people’s lives by transforming the way they experience remote Australia, of which Tasmanian golf is a very important aspect of.

Jon Perrett

Golf Manager

Jon grew up in the golf industry with his father designing golf courses around the world with Peter Thomson. After starting his professional career in Collins St, Jon moved full time in to the golf industry in 2009. Over the past 10 years Jon has worked in various roles across the industry and began with Air Adventure in 2016 after taking a group of his clients to King Island with Air Adventure. He was blown away by how spectacular the courses were and wanted to help others experience such an amazing place. He has a great passion for golf and is also having a lot of fun introducing his 5 year old Ollie to the game.

Our Pilots

Aviation is an integral part of transforming the way that people get to golf. This is why experience matters so much to us.

 When flying high performance aircraft, skilled hands at the controls is extremely important. All pilots are highly skilled commercial captains, with vast amounts of remote operations experience, but on top of that they are also great blokes to be around and will ensure your dream golf trip becomes a reality (with smooth landings).

Rob Thomas


Rob started flying 17 years ago after a long career in hospitality management and as the owner of a garden design and landscape business. Rob has accumulated over 4000 hours flying in various aircraft types and operations throughout Australia. Rob is passionate about food, wine, the Richmond Football Club and providing an exceptional customer experience for his passengers.

Jonathan Merridew

Chief Pilot

Jonathan has a lifetime of aviation experience. His formative years were often spent flying with his parents around Australia in small, single-engine aircraft so it was natural enough for him to do his Private Licence while at Uni. Jono now has over 9,000 hours of charter flying across Australia, New Zealand, PNG and East Timor.

Flying with Air Adventure Golf Tours can be as little as 90 mins from take-off to tee-off.
