New! Wing Tips – The story of the Royal Aero Club of South Australia – Book 2: 1941-1946

SAAM History Group member Mike Milln has just published Book 2 of his Royal Aero Club of South Australia history. (Book 1, covering the 1926-1941 period, was published in 2011.)
Book 2 covers the 40 postwar years until the Club’s failure. This is a warts-and-all story that is sad in some parts and funny in others. But it’s much more than just an aero club history – it also describes the context within which the club operated – the national aero clubs movement and the changing postwar aviation policy and regulatory environments that spelled its downfall. It is a must read for anybody connected with the club and/or interested in the part the aero club movement played in Australia’s aviation development.
