What is the Australian Air League?

The Australian Air League is an Australia wide youth organisation for young people eight years old and over, we are here to best educate and provide additional preparation for the youth to advance later in life.  We  encourage an interest in aviation as a career or as a hobby for the youth. We are entirely self-funded and is staffed by volunteers who give their time generously to achieve its goals.

The aims and objectives of the Australian Air League include:

  • To promote and encourage the development of Aviation in the Youth of Australia
  • To promote good citizenship
  • To promote ingenuity and resourcefulness of its members
  • To develop the physical and mental abilities of its members

The League’s motto “A Vinculo Terrae” translates into “Free from the bonds of the Earth”. This motto contains the very essence of flight into space.

The Australian Air League was formed in 1934, in an era when Australian Aviators such as Sir Charles Kingsford-Smith, Charles Ulm, Bert Hinkler, Sir Ross and Keith Smith and others were household names and heroes. The first Squadron was opened in Manly (NSW) and the Air League quickly spread throughout that state. In early 1939 the first Squadron was opened in Victoria and in 1944 the first Girls Section was formed. Today the Australian Air League is active in NSW, the  ACT, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and is still expanding.

R. Macey
“Thank you guys for a fantastic weekend! I haven’t seen Jaidyn being so active and social before. He’s made new friends and hopefully gained more confidence and self esteem. I too had a great time with T.Allen and T.McGoldrick, you ladies are fabulous and great company! Last but not least the leaders, Peter Allen and J.Davies for being so wonderful and giving up your whole weekend to teach, support and muck around with our children. The kids are lucky to have such awesome role models as yourselves.”

G. Hardesty
“Wow. T.Hardesty had the best time at camp. He hasn’t stopped talking about it since he walked in the door. Thanks for giving the boys such a great weekend”
