The RFDS Steadfast Outback Air Race is on again

The 2015 Steadfast Outback Air Race has kicked off for another year, the first aircraft departed on the 23rd August and runs to 4th September 2015.
The Steadfast Outback Air Race is a GPS-based navigation time trial throughout the remote Australian outback. With as many as 60 competitors in 30 aircraft, pilots nominate an elapsed time between two visual waypoints, receiving points for both time and location accuracy.
With the aim to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, competitors and spectators have raised over $1.5 million since its inception in 1996. All funds from each race go towards outfitting RFDS aircraft with essential medical equipment, vital for treating sick and injured patients.
If you would like to donate to this wonderful organisation you can do it here.
