Keep Flynn Flying - matched funds target reached!
Thanks to the generosity of the Australian community, we have reached our $100,000 target of donated funds. Rio Tinto will match these donations dollar for dollar, bringing our combined total to $200,000!

The campaign officially ends on 31 Oct - we would love to see donations continue to flow for the week, to support the RFDS deliver aeromedical care to regional and remote communities.

​​​​​​​All proceeds go toward supporting RFDS Western Operations.

A 30+ year partnership

Rio Tinto knows first-hand about the life changing work that the RFDS has been doing for over 90 years.

That’s why they’ve partnered with the RFDS since 2004 and supported two new Rio Tinto LifeFlight PC-24 jets.

To celebrate the partnership Rio Tinto and the RFDS have created a world-first mobile experience where Reverend John Flynn, founder of the RFDS and featured on the $20 note, comes alive through animation.

You can use your smart phone to bring a $20 note to life at keepflynnflying.com to experience the full virtual reality experience or watch the clip here.
