Virtual Flight for Charity

WorldFlight Australia is a virtual round the world flight that has raised over $200,000 for The Australian Royal Flying Doctor Service South Eastern Region. These funds have been directed to specific projects at the RFDS including Fly Around Clinics, Avionics and Navigation Equipment for their Beechcraft King Air aircraft.

With each passing year we have more Fixed Based Simulators joining in the round the world flight, each of them raising money for their own elected charity. Since WorldFlight started in 2000 we have had cockpit simulators from Ireland, Scotland, England, Germany, Austria, Canada and the USA accompany the Australian teams on the fundraising flights.

Our round the world flight in 2013 saw 10 cockpits participate with 6 from Australia and the others from the UK, Germany and the USA. A total of AUD40,000 was raised for various charities around the world with AUD20,000 going to our own charity, the RFDS.

Our Boeing 747-400 full motion cockpit simulator operates throughout the year offering sim rides for a donation to the RFDS, however each year in November 15 pilots will take the simulator on a virtual round the world flight that will see them raising up to $20,000 during the event.

The flight is conducted in an online environment on the VATSIM network and is joined by several other full cockpit sims based in Australia and overseas. Their details can be found in the links below. Virtual Air Traffic Services (ATC) is provided for the flights by VATSIM members around the world and also from the dedicated WorldFlight ATC centre located at Chipping Norton in Sydney Australia. The flight will take seven days to complete and is operated in real time as a regular airline would. One hour turnarounds are scheduled after each sector to allow for crew briefing and cockpit preparation for the next sector. During the seven days the flight will visit 45 airports and cover some 40,000nm.

This event can be followed by viewing the live video feed provided from within the cockpit and to view this you can visit the INTERACT pages of this website. Flight schedules and pilot rosters can be found in the OPERATIONS section as well as the route details and other information relating to the event. There is a DONATE link on each page and your support for the RFDS is always appreciated.

WORLDFLIGHT 2014 will commence in Sydney on Sunday November 2nd and finish 7 days later on Sunday November 9th. As we get closer to the departure date we will provide more details of the route, flight plans and suggested scenery links so that other members of the VATSIM network can join in and fly along with the group. Live video feeds can be found on our INTERACT pages and you can follow the fun on our FaceBook page.

Simulator rides in the Boeing 747-400 cockpit can be arranged but we do ask for a donation to the RFDS (receipt provided for tax purposes). The donation is based on time spent in the cockpit and is;
$150 for an hour
$200 for 2 hours
$350 for 3 hours and over

No experience is necessary as an instructor is with you teaching you how to fly the aircraft and performing many interesting approach and landings.
