Aviators Farewell / Sunday 16th August @ 11am

You're invited!

Come and bid our "fundraising squadron" farewell on Sunday 16th August before we set off on the 5,000km coast-to-coast adventure across Australia!

Our racers, donors and sponsors have all worked hard over the last six months, putting the $250,000 participant fundraising target well within our reach, and making a record breaking event total almost certain.

This is a perfect opportunity for friends, family, team sponsors and supporters to join in the celebration, which will also feature restored vintage Royal Flying Doctor Service aircraft on display!

No RSVP necessary and light refreshments will be provided.

The committee, participants and the RFDS look forward to seeing you there!

Race Newsletter #5 - July 2015

Our fifth race Newsletter is now available to view (click the image, or here). In this edition we announce Summit Fleet as our new Major Sponsor! Mike Bleus, RFDS Chief Pilot (Western Operations), gave us an update on their PC-24 order and spoke to us about landing on outback roads.

There are some important updates for participants from Don and Stuart regarding safety, insurances and admin. Teams please ensure you read through these sections thoroughly (skim reading the rest is fine!).

We are currently working with AvPlan to try and get a live race map available for spectators Australia Wide (and globally!) using the AvPlan Live service.

Our teams, and their donors, have now rasied over $160,000 for the flying doc and we are trending towards our $250,000 target! #fiveweekstogo!
