The Aircrew Association
The Aircrew Association (ACA) was formed in 1977 to foster comradeship amongst those who, having been awarded an official flying badge, qualified to operate military aircraft in the armed services of the UK, its allies and the Commonwealth. Under the central ACA organisation, many branches were established in the UK and overseas where aircrew could meet and enjoy like-minded company. The Intercom house magazine enabled members worldwide to exchange news.
The great majority of members were aircrew from WWII and inevitably time has taken its toll. As a result of declining membership, the central ACA organisation disbanded in Summer 2011, leaving branches to continue independently.
This web site is intended to facilitate continuing inter-branch communication now that Intercom has ceased publication.
Each independent ACA branch is invited to establish and maintain a thread on the forum into which their branch news is posted at regular intervals in place of their previous contributions to Intercom.
If there are any changes to branch points of contact, or if the status of the branch should change, please email the webmaster so that branch details can be kept up to date.
Those wishing to contact a branch of the ACA should do so by email via the contact page. Please notify the webmaster if any such emails fail to get through.
Items of general interest such as national events relevant to ACA branches should be notified by email to the webmaster so that they may be given due prominence on the site.
Intercom published a list of ACA members who had passed on. This web site includes a page HERE to continue this tradition, but will require branches to supply the necessary data by email to the webmaster.
ACA Archive Trust
This web site is sponsored by the ACA Archive Trust, which seeks to preserve key aircrew memorabilia contributed by members and their beneficiaries. Please see the ACA Archive Trust page for details.
ACA Charitable Fund
The Aircrew Association Charitable Fund became a registered charity in 1986, since when it has assisted many people who have been in urgent need of financial assistance. Following disbandment of the central AirCrew Association, the Charitable Fund has become part of SSAFA. See the ACA Charitable Fund page for details.
