The Aims of the Fleet Air Arm Association are: To assist members in matters relating to welfare. To maintain a close relationship with the Service and to inform the general public of the past traditions and present function of the Fleet Air Arm.

In 1985 three branches, Birmingham, Hanworth and Gosport, met and agreed to form a National Fleet Air Arm Association. The Association now has eighteen branches and a membership of just under a thousand. Branches cover an area from Yorkshire (Leeds) in the North to the Solent (Lee on Solent) in the South, from Great Yarmouth in the East to Bristol and District in the West.

Today, branches support the Fleet Air Arm Memorial Church, the Fleet Air Arm Museum, the Fly Navy Heritage Trust and the Royal Navy Historic Flight at RNAS Yeovilton. The Association was actively involved with raising funds for a Fleet Air Arm Memorials, sited on the Embankment in London, and the National Arboretum, Staffordshire.

Membership is open to all serving and ex-serving ranks who served without dishonour in a recognised Fleet Air Arm Trade for a minimum of six months.

The 2018 FAAA Reunion

The National FAAA Committee & Open Meetings held on the 14th October 2017
Committee Meeting Minutes - 14th October 2017
Open Meeting Minutes - 14th October 2017

Draft Agenda for Hanworth Meeting - 20 January 2018

Dear All

As you are well aware we have always had difficulty getting new blood on the Committee. We have relied on a small number of members fulfilling positions year after year. This e-mail is to ensure you have plenty of notice of Election of Officers which will take place at the AGM in 2018.

The Postal Ballot with nominees will go out in January to be returned to me, or a designated Officer, by the end of March.

The following positions require filling:

Three Committee members, Chairman, Vice Chairman and Treasurer.

Three of the Committee members due for re-election are willing to stand for re-election but this does not mean others cannot put their name forward. Similarly, the Treasurer is standing for re-election.

Please let me have names by 20th January 2018, which is the date of the next National Committee Meeting.

Thank you for your co-operation.
