Mount Isa to Karumba

The crew reach Mount Isa to chat with a pilot from the Royal Flying Doctors Service while also learning about managing fatigue, radio calls and drug and alcohol testing.

In this episode we see the crew make their way from Mt Isa to Karumba while chatting with local pilots and learning along the way.

We chat with local Mark Stuart at Mount Isa Royal Flying Doctors Service on managing fatigue and listening to your radio.

We also look into operating around non-controlled aerodromes, the golden rules of radio calls and answering questions on drug and alcohol testing.

We do bring a human face to the organisation and have a face-to-face sit down talking about their issues with some of the regulations and what's happening with them. We're a small team Australia-wide with a lot of industry experience.
