The Royal Aero Club of the United Kingdom - Flying

The Royal Aero Club of the United Kingdom (RAeC) is the national co-ordinating body for Air Sport in the United Kingdom.

The Chairman is David Roberts of the British Gliding Association.

Our history and origins date back to 1901, when we were founded as a Club for balloonists. The Club is made up of member organisations and individual members. The Full Members are the national governing bodies of the major individual air sports in the UK, and they each appoint a representative to the Governing Council. Associate and Corporate Member Organisations and Individual Members provide valuable additional support. People who have made significant individual contributions to the Club are awarded the title Companion of the Royal Aero Club.

Our principal role is to co-ordinate, promote and protect all forms of recreational and competitive air sport in the UK, and to represent UK air sport internationally.

Directly and through our member organisations, we represent the interests of many tens of thousands of people who participate in air sport, on a wide range of committees, consultation groups, political contacts, etc.

We are the UK representative on the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, which is the World governing body of sport flying, and which controls World and other international Championships and the registration of World Records.
