Outback Air Race supporters are those that contribute to the event by donating their time or products (eg. gifts, prizes), rather than direct financial assistance. There have been many supporters over the years, although we have listed a few of our favourite and longest standing supporters below.
Robert Hind developed the "AirScore" software specifically for the Outback Air Race (as far back as 1998!) and continues to provide software improvements and support in the lead up to each event.
Robert Hind specialises in programming and spreadsheets for a range of complex tasks as well as high transaction activities. He has developed transport costing and invoicing systems, reconciliation, analytical and mapping tools. Systems developed by Robert are used in conducting business with some of the largest businesses in the world. He aims for high automation, minimum or nil data entry and seamless sharing of data sets across applications. Robert Hind developed the first race scoring software system for the second Outback Air Race. He collaborated with the organisers to select the GPS Data Loggers currently used and generally makes improvements from one Outback Air Race to the next.
Robert is available for new projects and development.
