SAANZ Chapters

What a Chapter is and how to make contact with aircraft enthusiasts in your area.

Chapter membership information 

Members of a chapter are not required to be SAANZ members, although it is encouraged.

Similarly SAANZ members are not required to join a chapter.

Most chapters have a membership subscription that is independent of the SAA membership subscription.

Chapters are made up of local groups of SAANZ members and aircraft enthusiasts.

Chapters may participate in all Association events and activities.
