About Worldflight

Worldflight Australia is a virtual round the world flight to raise money for the Australian Royal Flying Doctor Service.

The concept of a virtual, round the world flight for charity was started by a team in the United Kingdom and has spawned an annual event with participants all over the globe. World Flight Australia was started in 2001 and over the years World Flight Australia teams have raised over $220,000 for the RFDS, helping with the costs of avionics and providing funding for Fly Around Clinics in the essential Air Ambulances used to ferry nurses, doctors and patients around rural Australia.

The popularity of conducting a World Flight for charity is growing; over the years teams in Canada, Ireland, Scotland, England, USA and Austria have joined the simulators in Australia. Each team selects their own needy charity, raising funds through donations and corporate sponsorship.

VATPAC Provides ATC within the VATPAC Airspace during Worldflight. Worldflight departs and arrives in Sydney each year usually travelling through several airports within VATPAC Airspace.
