Mentum Systems’ Principal Solution Architect, Steven Mogg and wife Christine recently completed the 2018 Outback Air Race to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Their team “Two-Up" came fourth in the time trial style race. The race followed a 4,500km route from Brisbane to Broome over a two week period from 19 August 2018. 40 light aircraft took part raising over $500,000 dollars for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Team “Two-up” flew a plane built by Steven in their Canberra Garage over the last 4 years.
The Outback Air Race exists to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service to provide vital medical services to all those living and travelling through the great Australian Outback. Since 1996 competitors and spectators have raised over $2.1 million, with funds from each race going towards outfitting RFDS aircraft with essential medical equipment, vital for treating sick and injured patients.
Be inspired and have a look at Steve’s journal at their team Facebook site: Team TwoUp Facebook page.
Travelling 4,500km from Brisbane to Broome was not quite enough for Team-up – you have to fly back, right? They flew back travelling 15,000km all around Australia. Check out their final route map. In Steve’s words – “We enjoyed meeting some great people and seeing amazing sites from the air and ground. Many of the people we met out there had personal stories of the life saving work the RFDS conducts across the vast majority of Australia”
