Thousands of Queenslanders rely on the Flying Doctor to keep them safe at times of emergency. It’s a duty we take very seriously indeed. That’s why, this year, we’ve decided to attempt something never been done before – the creation of Queensland’s first purpose built Aeromedical Base and Patient Transfer Facility.

Please donate a gift today to help us get construction underway. With your help to raise the final $702,856 we need, you’ll help us provide care for Queensland that truly goes above and beyond.


Situated in the central coastal city of Bundaberg, the Aeromedical Base, co-located with LifeFlight, will include an RFDS aircraft hangar, hospital-grade patient transfer facilities, medical training rooms and ambulance bays – ensuring faster emergency response times and the best critical care possible.

​​​13-year-old Christian was warming up on the rugby field near Rockhampton when he noticed a strange weakness in his legs. Two days later, he was almost completely paralysed – a victim of a rare neurological condition called Guillian-Barré syndrome.​​​​​​​

When the Guillian-Barré syndrome affected his breathing, the Flying Doctor flew him to Queensland Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, where he suffered complete respiratory failure. It took eight months of treatment and hard work before Christian could play his next game of rugby.

​​​With your help to complete it by February 2020, the new Aeromedical Base will provide an enhanced safety net for millions of Queenslanders like Christian, helping to save lives across the state by reducing the time it takes to transfer critically ill patients to intensive care.
