The Fleet Air Arm Association of Australia is a not-for-profit organisation  with the following aims:

  • to unite former and serving Naval Aviation personnel;
  • to maintain the bonds of friendship and esprit de corps in Naval Aviation;
  • to assist with the welfare of former and serving Naval Aviation personnel and their families;
  • to support Australia’s Fleet Air Arm Museum;
  • to foster the preservation of the history of Aviation in the RAN; and
  • to provide a forum for Naval Aviation issues.

Any person who is serving or who has served in the RAN Fleet Air Arm is eligible for membership.  People posted to units in direct support of the Fleet Air Arm will also be considered.  The Association also encourages membership for anyone who has been associated with Naval Aviation in any Commonwealth or allied Navy.  

Also, people who have a direct interest in Naval Aviation but have not served in the FAA can apply to become Associate Members. 

Our organisation has Divisions in all States and Territories except the NT (which is administered by QLD Division), and members are encouraged to join in the activities that interest them.

Members receive the quarterly journal Slipstream which publishes news and recollections of interest.   

The National Executive of the FAAAA undertakes activities such as arranging the national re-unions of Fleet Air Arm personnel, awards and medallions of merit to the top naval aviation achievers and the provision of advice to its members on welfare matters.

Divisional Executives organise re-unions within their area and arrange events such as Anzac Day parades. The Divisions also provide welfare advice to their members.

The FAAAA makes submissions to various committees on matters related to the treatment of ex-servicemen and women as well as contributing to naval aviation discussions.
