About Us

The Federation can offer to member Clubs the following:

  • Technical Advisory & Safety Committee
    Committee members make representation on the Federation’s behalf at Ministerial level and at as many industry meetings throughout the year as is practicable. The Federation’s Technical Advisory Committee is chaired by Charles Thompson who coordinates responses to notices and initiates appropriate and directed communications on issues brought to attention by members.
  • Annual Conference
    The Annual Flying Training Conference objective is to provide opportunity for Managers and HOOs of flight training organsaitons to get together with CASA, Air Services, ATSB etc and each other to discuss the Flying Training Industry, changes within General Aviation and network to share information and innovation.
