Royal Flying Doctor Service: Roadstrips in Flight Simulator 2020

Australia

For historical information only, do not use for navigation or aviation purposes!

The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia (RFDS) provides medical assistance by airplane in the remote areas of Australia. In addition to airfields and other landing strips, prepared sections on highways are also used for landing. In many cases, these can also be found and used in Flight Simulator 2020. Besides the straight course of the road, an important distinguishing feature is the marking of the runway thresholds with several longitudinal stripes.
