Flying Doctors

26 min x 6

(2013)

The Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) has bases at strategic locations throughout Australia. The enormity of the country demands the Flying Doctors fly over 4.8 million kilometres a year. From the dense remote tropics to the sizzling +50°C heat of the deserts, they are faced with extreme conditions every single day.

 

Rural outback Australia requires the use of make shift landing strips on unknown terrain. As the first ever air ambulance service in the world, their service was pioneering and many countries since have based their own services on the mission and principles of the RFDS.

From cityscapes to rural remoteness, both scenery and characters present audiences with the opportunity to experience compelling stories from exciting, often remote parts of the world.
