WORLDFLIGHT will commence in Sydney November 4th 2018 (Nov 3 GMT) and finishing on November 10th.

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;
