RFDS - Outback Air Race - August 30th & 31st



The Outback Air Race began in 1996 as a concept created by the fund raising division of the Royal Flying Doctor Service (WA Section). Essentially it is not a race, rather a time trial, which provides a considerable flying challenge, but is conducted in a safe and efficient manner. The aim of the Air Race is to raise funds for the RFDS and to provide an exciting and unique flying holiday for pilots from throughout Australia, New Zealand and overseas.

The Outback Air Race is not strictly a race, but rather a time trial and navigation exercise. Throughout the race, participants will accrue points by correctly estimating the time it will take them to fly from a designated start point to a designated end point during each day’s race leg, and will lose points for failure to exactly find and overfly the start and finish points. This ensures that crews of slower aircraft are not disadvantaged.

The event provides an exciting and unique flying holiday for pilots and their friends from throughout Australia and overseas. The Outback Air Race will typically comprise a fleet of up to 25 aircraft and 60 people. The race route varies from event to event, although it is guaranteed to encompass a picturesque and rugged route, covering some of the most scenic and spectacular geography in Australia.

Experienced pilots, the RFDS and a dedicated team of organisers are organizing the race; it is fully endorsed by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
