Raising a family in the outback would be impossible without access to quality primary health care. That’s why the regular clinics offered by the Flying Doctor across remote Queensland are vital – and why we recently purchased a King Air B200 aircraft for our Cairns base.

The aircraft is needed in order to fly our Primary Health Care teams to isolated communities like Georgetown, where Felicity Jenkins and her four children live. But before it can go into service, we need help from the Queensland community to fit it out with the rugged requirements for outback service.

Can you help us with a donation today? Your gift will help fund the aviation technology, strengthened landing gear and cabin fittings that will enable the B200 to land on remote dirt airstrips — ensuring a safe future for remote Queensland families like Felicity’s.

Our latest King Air B200 has a longer range and can fly higher than the aircraft it will replace, enabling it to fly above rough weather and access remote communities like Georgetown.

Georgetown is home to the Jenkins family. Mum Felicity told us: “Without the Flying Doctor, I’d have to drive a nine-hour round trip every time one of my kids developed a temperature, had an earache or needed a vaccine.”

“Nurse Cath Carroll flies in every other Thursday. Life here wouldn’t be possible without her and the Flying Doctor. That’s why I’m so happy about the B200 aircraft. It will help ensure communities like ours still exist when my kids have kids of their own.”
