The Sport Aircraft Association of Australia

The Sport Aircraft Association of Australia Inc. had its beginnings in 1956 when a group of aviation enthusiasts formed an association for people interested in building their own aircraft. This organisation, known as the Ultra Light Aircraft Association of Australia, grew in numbers and expanded its interest to all aspects of powered sport aviation. In the mid 1970s, with the advent of the Ultra light movement, it was decided to restructure and change the name of the association to Sport Aircraft Association of Australia (SAAA). The new name was more representative of the broader range of aviation interests of its members.
