Welcome to the Australian Warbirds Association Ltd.

The Australian Warbirds Association was incorporated in 1989 as a non profit company to bring together aircraft owners, operators, restorers, maintainers, historians and enthusiasts to share their passion for ex-military aviation and to promote and preserve Australia's proud military aviation heritage.

AWAL preserving Australia's proud military aviation heritage

Subsequently, with the advent of Limited Category, AWAL became the industry body to undertake self-administration of the category on behalf of CASA. (If AWAL had not done so, Limited Category would no longer exist). The result is that we Australians have more freedom to fly a greater variety of ex-military aircraft than practically anywhere else in the world.

Structure: AWAL is managed by a board of volunteer directors. The CEO and Director of Self Administration report to the Board.

Services provided by Australian Warbirds Association Ltd:

  • Administers Limited Category aircraft on behalf of CASA.
  • Provides systems of maintenance for various warbird types.
  • Bi-monthly newsletters to keep members informed.
  • Conducts seminars and training days for engineers, owners, and pilots of limited category aircraft
  • Assists Warbird enthusiasts to get close to real Warbirds and their operators.
