John Flynn


Presbyterian minister who founded the Royal Traveling Doctor Provider, the world’s initial air ambulance. He started his ministerial research in 1909, and he offered in missions in the Australian outback where he set up several bush clinics. He was presented to the chance of using airplanes for medical provider with a pilot, and he helped create what became in 1934 the Australian Aerial Medical Provider. In 1951, he wedded Jean Baird. His mom passed away in childbirth, and he grew up by his family members. His objective was comparable to Gabi Hollows who proved helpful in the rural elements of Australia to greatly help provide medical providers for the natives.
