This annual event involves a Qantas jet aircraft taking children and their carers on a 90 minute joy-flight over the Sydney-Newcastle-Wollongong area.
The children are physically or intellectually disadvantaged, suffering life threatening illnesses, come from homeless backgrounds or from circumstances where holidays are not possible.
The Rotary Club of Turramurra organizes the children, Qantas provides the aircraft, their staff (including pilots and crew) volunteer their time, and Qantas Pathfinders attend to the ticketing and ground support. Airport charges are waived by Sydney Airport Corporation Ltd and a fuel supplier generously donates the fuel.
The flight is usually held on a Saturday in November, departing from the Sydney Domestic Terminal. 2020 and 2021 flights were not held due to Covid-19.
Experience the joy of giving children a once in a lifetime opportunity.
