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 (from a total pool of $60,000).**

The first round of funding is for events held from 1 January to 31 March, 2021 and applications for this round are open 1 to 31 December 2020. 

Complete the application form and email to:

  1. Funds must be used for the purposes stated in the application (an agreement will be drawn up for successful applications detailing use of funds). 

  1. RAAus logo and name must be used wherever possible in the promotion of and at the actual event. 

  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 once application has been approved and will pay the funding on this invoice into nominated bank account.

  1. RAAus requests photos (where possible) of the event to be used in our communications and promotional material which also includes 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 may 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.

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.
