RFDS RIO TINTO LIFE FLIGHT JET
Maroomba Airlines is proud to operate the Hawker 850 XPi Jet for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS); a service which has been in operation since 2009.
Serving Australians since 1928, the RFDS is a not-for-profit charitable organisation that provides aero medical emergency and comprehensive healthcare services to people who live, work and travel in rural and remote Australia.
The RFDS also delivers critical support to people who live in urban centres by providing transfer of patients between regional and metropolitan hospitals.
The aircraft, which has been branded as the Rio Tinto Life Flight Jet, is based at Maroomba Airlines terminal at Perth Airport. From there, it is on-call 24/7 to respond to life-threatening emergencies throughout WA and beyond. Under its agreement, Maroomba pilots operate the aircraft while the RFDS provide medical staff for the Jet.
Supported by Rio Tinto Australia, the Rio Tinto Life Flight Jet is the only RFDS aero medical Jet in Australia. It has the capacity to carry three stretcher patients and two critical care teams, at speeds much faster than the current aircraft used by the RFDS.
Maroomba has donated space for a specialised patient transfer facility at Perth for exclusive use by the RFDS. www.flyingdoctor.org.au
