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!

Posted by Outback Air Race 2015: The Instrumentals for RFDS on Wednesday, May 6, 2015


We are now active on twitter, follow us on @outbackairrace and find other participants tweeting, including Mockingjay and The Instrumentals

RFDS Altitude Ball

We thought the Altitude Ball might be of interest to Outback Air Race followers. It is hosted by the RFDS WA section (not the Outback Air Race), on the 25th July at the Grand Ballroom, Crown Perth. Click on the banner to find out more!

Race Planning Update - Chinwag #3

We welcome you to our third race planning update at 7pm this Tuesday 12th May at the Royal Aero Club of WA, Jandakot. A key milestone was reached since our last update with Accommodation (and clothing) forms going out, as we get closer to the race start in August. We have also had to close registrations early due to our event capacity being reached!

In addition to an update from the committee, Jan Ende (LAME, Commercial Pilot and Outback Air Race veteran) has volunteered his time to talk to us about all things bush flying including preparation, maintenance and spares.

All are welcome.. Pizza will be available and the bar will be open.

Chinwag Newsletter #2 - April 2015

Our second Newsletter for 2015 is now available to view - click HERE. The newsletter provides an update on race planning progress and is a summary of the Chinwag event held at Jandakot airport on 14th April 2015, for those that were unable to attend.

Inside you will find some exciting news regarding new sponsors, accommodation and aviation updates, aerial photography tips, and more!

Future Chinwag event dates can be found on the events page.

Accommodation and Clothing forms released

We have just released our Accommodation and Clothing forms via email to race participants, if you have not received them please contact us!

ANZAC 100th anniversary formation flight

Chris Stevenson sent us these photos from their ANZAC 100th anniversary formation flight over Albany ANZAC Park parade.. one day our race manager (who is slowly building an RV) will be able to participate!

Registrations now closed

Due to an overwhelming response and enroute accommodation at capacity we have unfortunately had to close our registrations for the 2015 Outback Air Race earlier than expected. We now have over 70 racers registered in close to 30 aircraft, which will make a huge impression on the towns we visit enroute! If you are still interested in joining us you can send us an email ( with your details and expected team size and we will add you to the reserves list in case of any drop outs or accommodation changes.

This is going to be a big event which we are forecasting to be the largest ever Outback Air Race in terms of funds raised for the Royal Flying Doctor Service!
