About the Aviation Association of Western Australia Inc. (AAWA)
There’s an element of excitement associated with aircraft that creates enthusiasm. AAWA members have a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds, but we share a common passion for all things aviation.
Whether you are just getting started in aviation, an aviation photographer, an aviation collector, a pilot, aircraft engineer, or just have planes on the brain, AAWA is the organisation for you. Our Association is about camaraderie, dedication, recording history and sharing our love of aviation with others.
Founded in 2010 in Perth, Western Australia, the Aviation Association of WA Inc (AAWA) is a growing group of aviation enthusiasts who promote and support interest in aviation within Western Australia. It become the largest group of its kind in Western Australia, with around 60 paying members as at late 2017. AAWA is a non-profit, incorporated association, with a democratically-elected committee.
We established AviationWA (www.AviationWA.org.au), the first website dedicated to aviation in Western Australia, which we use to share aviation photos and information. We also have a Facebook group and a YouTube channel.
AAWA has established a broad network of aviation contacts at Perth Airport, Jandakot Airport, Royal Aero Club of WA, Sport Aircraft Builders Club, airlines, aviation training organisations, and other groups and individuals involved with aviation.
AAWA is an active advocate for aviation enthusiasts, providing input on issues such as spectator facilities at airports, airside access and aviation education.
