Port Augusta Airport - Country Airstrips Australia

The Port Augusta Airport in South Australia was awarded the winner of the Australian Rural Airport of the year for Aviation Excellence from the Australian Airports Association, in 2007.

RFDS Central Operations’ state-of-the-art Communications Centre is located at Port Augusta Airport, from which our Tasking Coordinators receive emergency calls, plan and assign all retrieval flights from Adelaide, Alice Springs and Port Augusta, whilst providing after-hours back up for the Broken Hill Base (operated by South Eastern Section).

The Port Augusta Base serves an area of 840,000 square kilometres, providing comprehensive health services to people in the far west and northern regions of South Australia. Services include 24-hour emergency retrievals and telehealth consultations, primary healthcare clinics and interhospital transfers.

In addition to our core team of pilots, flight nurses and doctors, our Aboriginal Health Coordinators, Community Health Nurse, Community Mental Health Nurse, together with our Healthy Living Program Coordinator and Lifestyle Trainers, are based in Port Augusta, enabling them to focus on serving people in isolated communities.
