If you’ve been to the Royal Adelaide Show or Royal Melbourne Show you might have seen our life sized simulator at the RFDS stand.
It’s a life sized replica of the fuselage of a flying doctor plane, fully equipped with stretchers, communications, oxygen, suction and the equipment used by our every day heroes, the doctors, nurses and pilots of the Royal Flying Doctor Service. And this week it’s appearing at the Royal Melbourne Show where you can make a ‘Pit-stop’ and get a health check from one of our lovely volunteer medical students.
At the Royal Adelaide Show recently, the RFDS site was awarded FIRST PLACE for Best Community Exhibit, so it’s well worth a look.
The simulator has been doing the rounds at schools in Victoria and Tasmania as part of the RFDS Victoria schools program. If you would like to find out more or organise for us to visit your schools just visit RFDS for schools.
