The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia is one of Australia's most loved and famous institutions. For 80 years it has provided emergency and primary healthcare, as well as assistance with communication and education to people who live, work and travel in regional and remote Australia. This Little Red Book is a record of this truly unique organisation that owes its success to men and women of extraordinary vision, ingenuity, daring and dedication.
Meet the heroes, feel the passion and come to understand how this organisation not only protects the Australian way of life, but has become an important part of the Australian way in its own right.
