The Aircrew Association Archive Trust dissolved as a charity on 30 June 2020.

Nevertheless, the ACA Archive at the Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington will endure and continues to welcome contributions.

The Archive exists to record memories and memorabilia of military aircrew and to make sure that key material is carefully preserved and available for research and display.

Please think carefully before discarding any relevant material and consider offering it to the Trust.

See the Trust page for details of how to make contact with the ACA Archivist, who will be delighted to assist.

ACA Council Reunion Lunch

Six former ACA Council members along with their ladies attended the annual lunch at the RAF Club on Friday the 4th October 2019.

Sir Chris Coville presided over a splendid meal, wine and a few gin & tonics. The conversation spread over a wide subject matter including the latest RAF news.

John Goodsir and Jack Broughton covered the activities of the A3T, which is likely to cease ops at the end of this financial year in June 2020.

The A3T Trustees, John Goodsir, Graham Pitchfork, Ray Flack and Jack Broughton, have decided to disperse most of  the remaining funds to procure flying experiences for the young in the name of the A3T.

To this end they have sponsored the purchase of 10 flying scholarships from the RAFA at a rate of 2 per annum at a cost of £25,000.  See response letter from RAFA CEO.

In similar fashion John Goodsir has arranged for The Air League to provide glider flying experience seminars (value £15,000) for a range of young people at Lasham Surrey  & Barnsley South Yorkshire.

Those attending wish to extend their best wishes to colleagues from the ACA Council and agreed to meet for a return match in October 2020.
