Angel Flight Australia
Angel Flight Australia is a charitable organisation coordinating free, non-emergency flights and ground transportation so people who live in rural and regional Australia can access the specialist medical treatments they need.
Angel Flight was started in April 2003 by businessman and 2005 Queensland Australian of the Year, Bill Bristow. A keen pilot himself, Angel Flight allowed Bill to combine his passions for flying, and helping those in need. In 2009, Bill was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia for his service to rural and remote communities through Angel Flight Australia and as a supporter of other charitable organisations.
