Aeromedical Simulator Incursion

FLIGHT SIMULATOR AT YOUR SCHOOL!

Our Aeromedical Simulator is available to visit schools in Victoria.


An experienced educator and presenter will bring the Aeromedical Simulator to your school to visit the classes that are studying the "Look Up In The Sky" resource to bring the work of the Royal Flying Doctor Service to life.

The RFDS Aeromedical Simulator is a life sized replica of the fuselage of a flying doctor plane. It is fully equipped with stretchers, communications, oxygen, suction and the other equipment used every day by our heroes - the doctors, nurses and pilots of the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Students will hear stories, land a plane, rescue a patient and climb on board, strap themselves in, and enjoy a unique experience.

 

The staff were exceptionally professional and engaging with the students.  Staff and students loved this experience.

Hughesdale Primary

 

The presentation by Tom was outstanding, as a teacher his delivery was fantastic, his use of strategies to engage all children was evident and he had them captivated! Having the planes 'namesake' Roy was exciting for the kids and the hands on learning materials and teaching resources were fantastic, I could not recommend this incursion highly enough for other school - our students are still discussing some of the statistics and connections they made!

It was an excellent incursion and we were so happy to be selected for the visit. many of our students have not been on a plane before.

 

 

Our students thoroughly enjoyed the visit from Tom. He had a great sense of humour that the kids responded to, and he kept them interested the entire time. It was a fun and informative session. We even have some students who would like to be a Royal Flying Doctor when they grow up! We look forward to another visit next year!

 

Tom is a fantastic presenter. Our sessions were highly engaging and links were made to our school's current Integrated Studies topic which was great. Thanks Tom and the RFDS education program!

East Devonport Primary School - Tasmania

 

The RFDS resources are excellent. They are well set out and easy to follow. Not only are the resources well set out for staff but they are also very enticing for students. All students valued the beautifully presented workbook. The DVD provided an excellent way of introducing the program to students and encouraged engagement. All the RFDS staff were extremely accommodating which made it easy to implement the program. Tom was fantastic at gaining the students' attention and managing any who were challenging. This is a very worthwhile program. It would be great to be able to implement it in the future.

We would highly recommend the program. It was well planned and executed.
