We regret to announce that our much anticipated Altitude Ball 2020 scheduled for Saturday 5 September at our iconic Jandakot Hangar has been cancelled.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service is committed to the health and safety of everyone who lives, works and travels throughout Western Australia.  Now more than ever, the health and safety of our people and our communities have been at the forefront of our work as we serve on the frontline of our State’s COVID-19 response.

This has been our focus in recent months and will continue to be our priority as we navigate this ‘new business as usual’ with COVID-19 protocols part of our foreseeable future. As you will appreciate, to continue flattening the curve and ensuring Western Australia’s vigilance, we must abide by restrictions on gatherings and most importantly our Jandakot hangar must remain response ready as a working aeromedical base.

A significant amount of work has gone into the organisation of this event and we sincerely thank our sponsors, suppliers, supporters and staff for their understanding during this disruption.


The work of the Flying Doctor continues throughout this pandemic and beyond and while we are unable to welcome you to our signature fundraising event we hope you will continue your advocacy and support for the lifesaving service we provide every day to Western Australia’s regional and remote communities.


We truly look forward to a time when we can gather and celebrate again. In the meantime please reach out and stay connected with your Flying Doctor as we work together towards a healthy and supported Western Australia.


We hope to come back to you soon with a truly amazing night!


We sincerely apologies for the inconvenience. In the meantime please reach out and stay connected with your Flying Doctor as we work together towards a healthy and supported Western Australia.

Operating for more than 90 years, the RFDS is both icon and innovator, and a vital link in the health and emergency network of WA.

Strategically based in five locations across the state (Broome, Port Hedland, Meekatharra, Kalgoorlie and Jandakot), the RFDS is staffed by a specialist team of clinicians, flight nurses/midwives, avionics engineers, pilots, logisticians and highly qualified professionals who ensure all operations are safe, efficient and provide the best care to every patient – 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.

With a fleet of 16 PC-12 turbo-props complemented by two PC-24 jets, each aircraft is fully equipped as an intensive care unit in the sky.  En route from regional WA to specialist hospitals only based in Perth, patients are attended by medical crews who provide the finest aeromedical treatment.
