Closing the gap to healthcare access for remote and rural queenslanders

About community flights

Community Flights is a not-for-profit registered charity with the mission to "close the gap to healthcare access" for regional and rural Queensland patients.

Community Flights provides free-of-charge aircraft transport for patients and carers to non-emergency medical treatment and services.

Community Flights aircrafts are not equipped for medical emergencies and the pilots and volunteers are not able to provide any medical treatment before, during, or after the flights.

Born from frustration

Mark was hearing more and more from his pharmacy customers of the struggle to find specialist treatment in the area. The most common frustration was the long distance travel for heart, brain and cancer therapy. So he made it his mission to start this charity to give his piloting skills and aircraft for a better purpose.

Each month over 440 patient are in need of transport from Hervey Bay and Bundaberg alone. Mark is now piloting his Hervey Bay based aircraft to take patients to their non-emergency medical appointments and treatment.
