The aim of the Regional Aviation Association of Australia (RAAA) is to support its members by working with Government, the regulatory authority, and the community to promote a safe and viable regional aviation industry for everyone.
The RAAA is managed by a Board of Directors elected by Members each year at the AGM from Ordinary and Associate Members. Under the RAAA constitution, the board will consist of not more than 12 nor less than 7 Directors.
The RAAA regulary provides information to the general media so that the Australian public as a whole has the ability to keep abreast of news worthy events within the Association or the Associations opinion on particular issues.
TAAAF Aviation Policy
This aviation policy document was launched by the Australian Aviation Associations’ Forum (TAAAF) of which the Regional Aviation Association of Australia (RAAA) is a member on 28 April 2016.
An important role undertaken by the RAAA is responding to discussions papers, regulations and other documents issued by the Goverment, its departments and agencies in relation to issues affecting our members and aviation in regional Australia.
The RAAA provides wide representation for the regional aviation industry by lobbying of Ministers and senior officials, through parliamentary submissions, personal contact and by ongoing, active participation in a number of consultative forums.
Commercial aviation has its humble beginning in 1914 when 3,000 people gathered at the waterside in St Petersburg Florida USA for the flight to Tampa Florida USA. Today the aviation industry itself is a major direct generator of employment and economic activity.
