Flight Nurses Australia was established in 1994 to support men and women working in aviation/transport settings in the Australian region.

The objectives of Flight Nurses Australia are to:

  • Provide a unified voice for flight nurses in the Australian region, promoting their general welfare, educational standards, professional interests and to uphold the status of flight nursing as a professional nursing speciality;
  • Uphold the role of the flight nurses as a valuable member of any aeromedical crew;
  • Facilitate and promote flight nursing knowledge through continuing education by way of newsletters and seminars;
  • Maintain a forum for communication and co-operation amongst flight nurses and other medical and non-medical personnel;
  • Develop national standards for nursing practice for flight nurses in the Australian region and to promote the delivery of quality care to our patients in the aviation/transiport environment;
  • Promote research that relates to the impact of health delivery in the aviation/transport environment;
  • Act as an adivsory body for aeromedical information relating to nursing practice in the aviation/transport environment.
