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.

Our meetings are also webcast via Zoom for members who cannot attend in person.

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

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.
