The Royal Aero Club
of the United Kingdom

  • We are the UK representative on the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, which is the World governing body of sport flying, and which controls World and other international Championships and the registration of World Records. It also has a major role in setting technical standards and negotiating with international official bodies. In consultation with our member organisations, we appoint the UK delegates to the various FAI Commissions.
  • We are the UK representative on Europe Air Sports, which is affiliated to the FAI and co-ordinates responses to legislation and regulation affecting recreational flying within the EU and more widely throughout Europe. In consultation with our member organisations, we appoint UK Technical Officers and Working Party Coordinators and Members.
  • We have established the Royal Aero Club Trust, which is a charity to provide resources for youth involvement, education, promotion of air sport, and the conservation of historically important items related to aviation.
