Royal Flying Doctor's Journey Home
Brisbane Airport Corporation has been a proud partner of the RFDS since 2008 and this year our contribution will reach $1.5 million, which is equivalent to the cost of medically fitting out a new aircraft. To celebrate this milestone we are tracking the newest aircraft to the RFDS fleet from Wichita to Queensland and sharing the journey with our social media community.
Follow us on Twitter and Instagram and like us on Facebook so you don’t miss any of the action as the newest member of the RFDS fleet makes its big journey across the globe to become a fully qualified RFDS aircraft.
New RFDS Aircraft Information
The King Air 350C Heavy Weight model offers an array of valuable features, particularly for aeromedical missions including a uniquely built-in airstair and cargo door and offers an increased payload of 1,400 pounds. The large cargo door is beneficial for the RFDS aeromedical activities, as it will allow improved access for the loading and unloading of patients as well as medical equipment that is required to be on board.
