Sport Pilot Magazine

RAAus is excited to announce the return of Sport Pilot

Firstly, we’d like to thank our members for their patience as we worked through this difficult and challenging project.

We wanted to make sure that first and foremost we meet the needs and expectations of the majority of our members. By actively talking to members throughout the second half of 2019 and surveying our entire membership in early 2020 we were able to better understand what you wanted.

It is very pleasing to announce that during 2020, Sport Pilot will be back in the hands of every financial RAAus member, every RAAus flight training school and every RAAus club.

Better still, there will be no charge.

In balancing both the financial needs and requirements of RAAus and also listening to our members, Sport Pilot will be delivered free to all financial members three times per year. In addition to the physical magazine being delivered three times per year, regular content will be provided to members through our digital and social media channels.

The physical magazine will contain more content than in previous editions and retain the key content members were most interested in.

Our media partner, PACE Media, will take the lead role in bringing Sport Pilot to life and we look forward to letting members know when they can expect the first edition.
