Types of Membership

Full Member

Membership is open to organisations based in the United Kingdom which are involved in the active preservation of the aviation heritage.

All applicants for membership will be elected as Provisional Members for a probationary period of 12 months from date of acceptance. Acceptance is granted by vote of Council.

During the probationary period, a representative should attend at least one quarterly meeting and make a formal presentation about the history, aims and objectives of their organization. Failure to do so will mean that a new application must be made. A written draft of this presentation may be circulated to member organizations for comment. Applicants may receive requests for additional information.

Upgrading from Provisional to full Member status is granted by vote of Council. A Membership Certificate will be presented.
