The Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) aeromedical simulator - a full replica of the King Air B200 - is available for community events.

Take a seat inside the cockpit and experience what it’s like to fly a life-saving mission in regional, rural and remote Queensland.

Once onboard, you’ll feel like you are really inside the back of an a RFDS plane, soaring over rugged terrain and navigating challenges experienced by our pilots and nurses.
