Whether it's checking out our brand new hololens experience of our Rio Tinto LifeFlight PC-24 jet aircraft or having a chat with our doctors, nurses, pilots about a career with the RFDS, there are plenty of reasons to visit our exhibition at the Perth Royal Show! 

Visitors are also invited to check out our PC-12 aircraft simulator which is an exact replica of the unique environment our crews work in, learn about what to expect if you ever need to fly with the RFDS, view our medical chests and select from a wide range of RFDS merchandise. 

This year, in what will be an incredible sight to see, one of the RFDS' EC145 Fortescue Heli-Med Service helicopters will be landing at the showgrounds oval on Monday 26 September at 5pm. 

Be sure to spread the word and come along with your family and friends! We can't wait to swap stories and thank you for your support which keeps us in the air. 

With the support of the WA community, the RFDS came to the aid of nearly 10,000 people living, working and holidaying throughout Western Australia. 

Where you can find us: Centenary Pavilion's ''Farm to Food" Pavilion (Map reference E6) 
What time we'll be there from: 10am-6pm
