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.

Aircrew Association Charitable Fund

Registered Charity No 299080

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.

The aims and objects of the charity are to advance public education and to relieve poverty and hardship particularly among persons who are eligible for full membership of the Aircrew Association and the dependants or relatives of such persons throughout England and Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

With effect from 13th April 2012, by virtue of a scheme made by the Charity Commission with the authority of The Charities Act 2011, the existing trustees were dismissed and SSAFA became the sole trustee. They will continue to administer “The Aircrew Association Charitable Fund” in accordance with its original trust deed which has been amended only to reflect the change in trustees.

All correspondence should now be sent to
