Construction of the new hangar for Royal Flying Doctor Service (Western Operations) is making progress.
In March 2016, the WA Government announced that $3.9 million was to be contributed by Lotterywest to construct the new hangar.
The hangar is needed for maintenance and storage of the three Pilatus PC-24 jets being delivered to RFDS Western Operations.
The first PC-24 arrives in early 2018, the second soon after and the third in 2019.
