The advent of the Royal Flying Doctor Service in the 1930s was a testimony to Australian innovation and ingenuity. Much as been written about the early history of this iconic organisation, adapting aircraft and pedal radios to meet the needs of people in vast remote areas. In this book, Dr Stephen Langford, the Service's longest serving medico, provides a compelling account of the Service since the late 1970s. Langford's history emphasises the technology and innovation that has enabled the RFDS to remain at the forefront of aeromedical care.
