AMREF Flying Doctors’ Visitors Centre showcases AMREF’s history and raises awareness and support for the Flying Doctors with members of the public.
Since its opening in 2007 by Dr Tom Rees, the last surviving founder of AMREF Flying Doctors, the Centre has attracted a large number of visitors, including more than 3,500 school children. The children are inspired and encouraged by what has been achieved, and it often encourages many to consider a career in the medical field.
Commencing with a 15 minute DVD, visitors follow the story of AMREF Flying Doctors from its foundation in 1957 to its impressive achievements today. Visitors tour the museum and then go to where the action takes place—the 24 hour Control Centre where dedicated nurses take all of the calls. To finish the tour, visitors go in to the hangar to view the aircraft. Tours must be arranged in advance and run for 45 minutes.
Visitors Centre Opening hours are:
Monday to Friday
