Team fundraising total approaching $100,000!

EDH Widget not loaded

Our team fundraising total is rapidly approaching $100,000, thanks to some recent efforts from teams such as The Altitude Chasers ($15,000 fundraising dinner) and The Instrumentals ($5,000 donation from Jandakot Airport Holdings).

We are targeting $250,000 raised by teams which does not include funds raised from event sponsors and other sources. The actual current total fundraising figure is very impressive and a closely guarded secret, which we look forward to announcing at the Hamilton Island finish party!

You can see the new total fundraising widget on our leaderboard page here:

Steadfast Foundation as Naming Rights Supporter!

We are excited to announce that Steadfast Foundation have joined us as our Naming Rights Supporter! Going forward we will be known as the Steadfast Outback Air Race which, coincidentally, shortens to SOAR!

Steadfast and its brokers actively support the communities in which they live and work, typically donating around 1% of net profit after tax to charitable causes each financial year.

Steadfast created the Steadfast Foundation to facilitate grants and charitable contributions that support charities helping people overcome adversity, with $1.3 million in donations made in its first 10 years.

The Steadfast Foundation is guided by the Steadfast Foundation Board which is responsible for reviewing all submissions and will make its funding decisions for the benefit of the community and in alignment with the philosophy of the Foundation.

Charities are often chosen based on the recommendations of members of the Steadfast network and include cancer research and support, mental health, surf lifesaving, children’s causes and charities supporting the homeless and disadvantaged.

Charities supported include BeyondBlue, McGrath Foundation, Surf Life Saving, Salvation Army, Startlight Foundation, Prostate Cancer Foundation and of course, the RFDS.

Thanks to a connection one of our organising committee had with the Steadfast group, we are very proud to have them join us as the event Naming Rights supporter and look forward to working with them over coming months and throughout the race. This is a very exciting connection for us and their support for us and the RFDS, really is incredibly generous.

Race Newsletter #3 - May 2015

Our third race newsletter is now available to view - click HERE. With only 3 months to go until race start, there is a lot happening including participant access to their free AvPlan subscriptions, planning for a lunch fly-in at Davenport Downs, final registrations, and more.

Our guest speaker was Jan Ende who has provided his expert advice on caring for your aircraft.

We aim to provide an entertaining race update for non-participants, however for race participants we consider this a "must read" to assist with your planning and for the committee to communicate important information.

The Instrumentals on Facebook

The Instrumentals have an excellent Twitter and Facebook campaign underway. In particular, we really like their entertaining (and slightly worrying!) promo video filmed in their hanger. We're expecting more good things from them in the future - click on the links to like and follow them!

THE INSTRUMENTALS live: watch the way that we do it!
