Rotary of Crawley (ROC) in partnership with Cobham Aviation Services brings you BlueSky, an environmentally conscious way to explore and discover domestic destinations whilst supporting regional communities. BlueSky is ROC's main fundraising activity with all funds raised going to community service projects, other charities and not-for-profits.
BlueSky encourages regional tourism that supports local industry and builds our connection with this beautiful State, country and people. When putting a trip together, we work closely with the local community to develop your itinerary. This means we are able to offer unique, and often exclusive, experiences to BlueSky passengers that are not only fun, but provide connection and insight into local life, culture and history.
We work hard to support local small businesses through the purchase of the goods and services we need to run our trips and also encourage our passengers to do the same. Where possible, we provide fundraising opportunities for charities and not-for-profitsin the locations we visit (e.g. St John Ambulance volunteers).
All profits raised by BlueSky go towards charity. ROC is BlueSky’s major beneficiary who distribute the funds supporting community projects including youth empowerment, community relief and global health initiatives. Certain BlueSky trips have specific charitable foci such as the BlueSky Broome Pride trip in support of Copeland LGBTI crisis accommodation.
We understands that a strong community is only possible with a strong natural environment; therefore, Environmental sustainability is at the center of every BlueSky project. We offset the carbon emissions resulting from flights by approximately 200%, through the planting of native forests which reduce the impacts of climate change and source sustainable products.
