Celebrating 80 years of the mighty Auster


As we commemorate 80 years of  the venerable Auster, we are keen to see as many of them on the field as possible and we know there's many of you out there! 


To ensure all costs associated with the event are covered, there is a $25 per person Event Registration Fee, this will go towards covering costs associated with the event commemorative plaque, bus hire, toilets, marquees and other facilities required to run the event. The Event Registration Fee will be payable online when you select the REGISTER button above or via the 2019 National Fly-in event page on our website.


On arrival, make your way to the Echuca Aero Club where our volunteers on the Welcome Desk will greet you and provide you with a bus timetable and your souvenir event plaque as well as an opportunity to register your attendance in the event registration book. 

We are encouraging all members to utilise our online systems for membership renewals as this will ensure a smoother and more efficient operation at the National by reducing the workload on the Welcome Desk volunteers. If you haven't renewed your membership online prior to the event, you will be able to renew at the event.

Further information on dinner ticket sales and process is detailed below. You will have already received your membership renewal notice via email and if not the renewal form will be in Rag & Tube which will be in the mail shortly.
