The SAAM History Group
comprises a small number of Museum members with a shared strong interest in researching and writing South Australian aviation history. Their main focus is the research and writing of short profiles on significant South Australian aviators and aviation events for publishing on this site and elsewhere. The History Group also assists visitors to the Museum by researching and providing answers to their questions on aviation history, and assists members who are engaged in the restoration of historic aircraft, by researching such matters as aircraft colours, registrations and liveries to ensure authenticity.
