Slipstream Archive


Slipstream is the quarterly magazine of the Fleet Air Arm Association of Australia.

The Slipstream Archive Library is now complete.  It contains past copies of all available published magazines in .pdf format, except for the two most recent.  Magazines in the archive are available to read on your screen or download for later perusal should you wish.  

These magazines present a fascinating series of snapshots of the RAN Fleet Air Arm since 1957 and are provided for the enjoyment of any person who has an interest in them.  

The magazines were produced in two main ‘batches’.  The early batch commenced in the 1950s and ran through to September 1963, when production was terminated.  The modern ones commenced with Vol 1-1 in January 1990 and continue to this day. 

Magazines are displayed in their date order, with the earliest at the lower end of the archive and the most recent at the top.  

The four most recent magazines can only be found under the “Members Only” menu at the top of this page. You must be a member of the FAAAA to access them.
