The Regional Aviation Association of Australia (RAAA) National Convention is highly regarded as a premier annual aviation event and attracts key industry leaders, regional operators, technical experts, manufacturers and suppliers. CASA, the government and other regulatory bodies are well represented and contribute significantly to the program. Importantly, the event is open to members and non-members providing a tremendous benefit to the industry as a whole.

The 2016 RAAA National Convention was held from the 19-21 October 2016 at the Crowne Plaza in the Hunter Valley – a region known for its fine wine, gourmet food and picturesque country side.

Held over three days the RAAA National Convention brought together over 300 participants and included a technical program incorporating workshops, trade show showcasing over 55 exhibitors, social/networking functions and an official dinner.
