Route

The 2015 Steadfast Outback Air Race will take us "coast to coast" from Esperance in WA to Hamilton Island, QLD, via the Red Center.

For participants, the organising committee takes care of all fuel, communication, accommodation, entertainment and the like enroute, which will be communicated in your information package and at pre-flight meetings.

With race legs of approximately 300MN, racers will have about 2-3 hours flying time per leg, depending of aircraft size and type. Two nights accommodation is booked on all rest days, with overnight stays at all other locations.
