The LAA was established just after the end of World War Two with the aim of ensuring that recreational aviation was affordably available to the man in the street. Pre-war it had predominantly been the preserve of the better off.


Nearly seventy years later, the Association remains true to that ethos, demonstrating its commitment to affordability with its Permit to Fly airworthiness regime, and with its work in advocacy ensuring that the needs and freedoms of the recreational pilot are duly considered in a world where it is all too easy for Commercial Air Transport to take the largest slice of the cake.
