Meet the heroes

Meet the heroes

It’s one of the most beautiful but dangerous places on earth.


And when Australians call out the flying doctor, they are likely to be British and so is the
pilot, paramedic and crewman.


From shark attacks on the surfing beaches to exploding BBQs in the Sydney suburbs.


These are the Brits who can make the difference between life and death Down Under.


Meet the helicopter heroes and find out about their lives.
