The teenager had been arrested earlier this week following a high-speed pursuit through Broome.
He is alleged to have driven through a local school, a golf park and a shopping mall.
Just minutes after take-off on the Broome-Perth flight yesterday, the same 17-year-old allegedly charged at the pilot, despite being restrained.
He’s also accused of then starting to kick the interior of the plane.
Two other detainees on board are alleged to have joined in the disturbance.
The Department of Justice says staff regained control quickly, but the plane turned around to return to Broome.
The 17-year-old has been put on a second flight with additional staff and brought to Perth.
The other two detainees were brought to the capital on the re-launched original flight.
