About SAAA

What We Do

We build, maintain and fly sport aircraft!

SAAA Members operate VH-registered aircraft like any other general aviation aircraft owner and pilot with access to the full range of licences, endorsements and access to airspaces.

The range of aircraft typically operated amongst the SAAA community is phenomenal:

  • Single / Multi-Engine   –   Piston / Jet / TurboProp
  • Fixed Wing / Helicopter / Seaplane   –   MTOWs up to ~2000kg
  • Wing loadings up to ~40 lb/sq ft
  • Cruise TAS up to ~325kts – High Altitude Operations up to ~FL280
  • All classes of airspace   –   VFR / Night VFR / IFR

We like to have fun – fly-ins, events and social activities.

SAAA is a rewarding and exciting place to be!


And we do EVENTS…..

What We Offer

We are a Community

We have:

  • A Network of Chapters
  • Aviators with knowledge, expertise, spirit and the will to help
  • Events, Fly-Ins, Socials and Education
  • A Safety Program
  • A Member Support Program
  • A huge range of Member Benefits and Services


We manage the issuance of Special Certificates of Airworthiness for our Member aircraft, and we can maintain our own aircraft – but CASA retains the responsibilities for aircraft registration, pilot licensing and aviation medical certification.

Whatever your particular interest in aviation, the SAAA provides the opportunity to share the experience with fellow enthusiasts.
