Trading Flight For Life - Helping farmers through the drought

By Bush Flyers Down Under together with Pilots Lounge Australia

With most Australians living on the coastal fringes, few see the devastation tearing through our country as a result of the worst drought on record that regions of Australia are currently experiencing. With stock dying and rural families suffering BFDU has teamed with PLA and supported by Ringers from the top end and Farmer from down under to raise funds to help the fantastic team at Drought Angels to do there amazing work supporting farmers in desperate need.

Flying is no cheap hobby and has us as pilots putting our hands deep in our pockets every time we choose to fly. Trading flight for life is all about sacrificing and hour or more of your flying time to go something else, Spend time with your family, take the dog for a walk, go to the beach or see a movie. Then take that money you would have put into the aeroplane and donate it toward this worthy cause and help a farmer put some food on the table, feed there stock or put water in their tanks.

Currently helping control foxes, rabbits, roos, feral cats, dogs, pigs and goats north of Cooma ... they re everywhere, killing lambs, sheep and devouring green shoots before the feed crops get a chance to kick off. I ve never seen so much dust in this part of the country. Silage and hay bales running desperately low
