We are delighted to welcome the latest addition to our aeromedical fleet – our second purpose-built RFDS Medi-Jet 24 dedicated to improving and saving the lives of all Territorians.

This major investment in a second RFDS Medi-Jet 24 demonstrates our long-term commitment to our partnership with the Northern Territory and Commonwealth Government, and the RFDS’ contribution to the advancement of the Territory’s health system.

The new RFDS Medi-Jet 24 last week undertook its inaugural flight from Adelaide to Darwin for its official unveiling and the announcement of S. Kidman & Co as our corporate Jet Partner for another four years.

To watch the official unveiling and witness the first dirt airstrip landing of an aeromedical jet on Territory soil, please see below.

This remarkable milestone in aeromedical care has been solely funded through your generosity and the collective contribution of our local communities, donors, bequestors and corporate partners.

Your support has delivered this world-class technology to our doorstep – enabling our crews to slash mission times in reaching our patients, while delivering the very finest care in the air.

Thank you again and all the very best,

Tony Vaughan ASM
