Summit Fleet, proud sponsor of the Outback Air Race 2015

Outback Air Race

Summit Fleet is excited and proud to announce that it is a major sponsor of the Outback Air Race 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 aircrafts with essential medical equipment, vital for treating sick and injured patients.

The event The Outback Air Race will typically comprise a fleet of up to 25 aircraft and 60 people. The race route varies from event to event, and provides an exciting and unique experience for pilots and their friends from throughout Australia and overseas.

Fully endorsed by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), this amazing initiative is organised by experienced pilots, the RFDS and a dedicated team.

The 2015 Steadfast Outback Air Race will be held from 23rd August to 4th September 2015.
