2018 marks the 90th anniversary of the Royal Flying Doctor
Service in Australia.

On the 17th May 1928, Reverend John Flynn’s dream to provide
a desperately needed 'mantle of safety' for the people of regional and remote
Australia became a reality, when the first Flying Doctor took flight in a
single engine leased Qantas plane from Cloncurry, Queensland.

Today, the Royal Flying Doctor Service provides the finest
care to more than 270,000 Australians each year, on the ground, in the air and
on call. That’s one person every two minutes.

We would not be able to continue the life-changing work we
do without the generosity of our donors across the state; your support carries
us far and wide.

Join us in celebrating our 90th year, safe in the knowledge
that the Flying Doctor will be there, wherever and whenever you need us.

Our 90th anniversary souvenir edition magazine highlights
the incredible people who make it possible for us to deliver life-saving aero
medical care to the furthest corners of our great state. To read more click
