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.
Recreational Aviation Australia
Formerly known as the Australian Ultralight Federation, Recreational Aviation Australia (RAAus.) is the peak body in Australia responsible for administering ultralight, recreational and Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) operations.
We train and certify pilots (almost 10,000 members), flying instructors and maintainers, register a fleet of almost 3,500 aircraft, oversee the operations of 174 Flight Training Schools throughout the country and support almost 50 Aero Clubs.

AOPA Australia exists as a unified voice for pilots and aircraft owners. It uses its voice in a number of ways. By far AOPA Australia’s most important job is advocacy. This is working with all levels of government to ensure pilots and aircraft owners are free to fly without unnecessary restrictions or costs. It does this by developing close working relationships with the various government departments and agencies.

Australian Women’s Pilot Association
On 16 September 1950 a group of thirty five women became charter members of the Australian Women Pilots’ Association at a meeting at Bankstown Airport in Sydney. These women pilots of all ages and experience became the core of a nationwide network which today, like then, aims to assist women to achieve their goals in aviation.
