ABOUT Sunflower Aviation Limited

A good customer relationship is priority here at Sunflower.

The Joyce Aviation Group is owned by Tim and Susan Joyce, who first came to Fiji in 2003, on a round-Pacific sailing voyage with their two young daughters. The family had lived on their boat for 5 years and chose to stay and settle in Fiji. Tim identified an opportunity to develop tourist activities by introducing Tandem Skydiving to Fiji and to expand the helicopter industry here to include tourist flights and medical evacuations.

In 2014 following the success of Skydive Fiji and Heli-Tours Fiji, Tim & Susan Joyce purchased Sunflower Aviation Limited in order to expand their aviation capabilities and to have control over the maintenance and support of their aircraft.

Under new management, the Team will continue and further develop the legacy and vision Sunflower was built on, along with professional and experienced pilots and staff. Our aircraft fleet and operations are well-positioned and equipped to provide the following services:
