Melbourne Meetings

AHSA Inc. holds monthly meetings on the fourth Wednesday of the month, 7.30pm at the RAAF Association, 24 Camberwell Rd, Hawthorn East.

Some members meet casually for dinner from 6.00pm at the Tower Hotel opposite the RAAFA.

During the current COVID-19 restrictions, our monthly meetings are held online via Zoom. Meeting details are sent to members each month.

Speakers on aviation subjects and member nights are programmed throughout the year. Visits to local venues and events of interest are also determined and advised.

The annual John Duigan Memorial Lecture is held in November where a speaker is invited to present on a significant event in Australian aviation history.


The AHSA Inc. is a registered charity, and all donations over $2.00 are tax deductible. The Society is a not-for-profit organisation. Membership fees and donations fund our activities. We are constantly looking to improve and expand the scope of our activities.
