About the Antiquers:


The Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia is widely recognised as Australia's premier organisation promoting the preservation, restoration and flying of old aeroplanes.  “Old Aeroplanes” includes Antique, Classic and Contemporary aeroplanes, both Civil and Military from the 1920s through to the 1960s.


The AAAA was formed in 1974 by a group of owners and enthusiasts to fill a need for an association to represent the interests of owners of old aeroplanes at a time where aircraft were being exported or forced out of the air by heavy Government charges and regulation.


The most important role of the Association has been to give owners and enthusiasts a unified voice with which to speak to Government instrumentalities. We are the recognised spokespersons for Australia's restorers, maintainers, owners and operators of old aeroplanes.


The AAAA is an incorporated association.  It is run by a committee of members elected at the annual general meeting.  The association has no salaried officials and is completely self-funded, receiving no Government subsidies.
