Locals this weekend can, if they're game enough, get a bird's eye view of the city and help the Royal Flying Doctor Service at the same time.

Skydive OZ is back in town for the 10th anniversary of its 'Outback Touring' which has seen them visit more than 40 different towns in NSW, from Broken Hill to Tenterfield, over the years. 

To celebrate this, Skydive Oz is raising money from the sale of tickets for the RFDS as a way of thanking the towns they have visited.

"We hope to raise at least $1,000 from the tour," said instructor Jules McConnel.

"We chose the RFDS because they do such incredible work for outback NSW."

The Skydive Oz team has 30,000 jumps between them and hope to give people the opportunity to enjoy the freedom of flight without having to travel away from their home town home.

They will be in Broken Hill on June 11 and 12 and are inviting everyone to come along. 

Skydive Oz will also be putting on a barbecue lunch, with the proceeds raised from it going towards the Aero Club. For more information visit www.skydiveoz.com.au.
