The heart of the RAAA is its Members and the diversity of experience they bring to the Association in fulfilling its aim and objectives. Only by working together and talking as one strong voice will we create and maintain change to ensure a sustainable aviation industry for regional and remote communities in Australia. The more communities serviced by aviation the potential for more operators and aircraft requiring services from the industries that support them.
