Apply for Event Support

In an effort to support local, community events, stimulate interest in recreational aviation and the economy associated with it, RAAus has established an event support fund.* 

Affiliated clubs, RAAus Flight Training Schools, airports with recreational activities and related event organisers can apply for event support funding of up to $5,000 per event.**

Funding is available for events held from 1 February to 30 June, 2021. Please allow a minimum of 10 business days prior to your event for RAAus to assess your application.

Complete the application form and email to:

  1. Funds must be used for the purposes stated in the application. RAAus reserves the right to request quotes and/or receipts for any product or service purchased for the event.

  1. RAAus logo and name must be used in the promotion of and at the actual event. RAAus can also provide assistance with the promotion your event via our communication and marketing channels.

  1. Funding can be cash transfer only or a combination of cash transfer and RAAus merchandise (for giveaways) but must not exceed $5,000 in total. RAAus will require an invoice from your organisation once application has been approved and will pay the funding on this invoice into nominated bank account.

  1. RAAus requests photos of the event to be used in our communications and promotional material and this also must include permission by holders of the event and any persons appearing that photos can be used for this purpose, digitally and/or in print. 

  2. Successful applicants can only be awarded a maximum of $5,000 in any given quarter but are allowed to re-apply for funding for a different event in other quarters.

  3. In the instance the event is cancelled & the invoice has been paid, the recipient must return all funds back to RAAus. If the event is still proceeding but changes are made to how the funding is utilised, the recipient must advise RAAus, who will determine if, and in what way, support is still provided.

All applications will be considered however preference will be given to local, community-based events run by organisations with little or no funding that may otherwise be unable to hold their event.
