    and gently steady the wing above my head.

As the airspace becomes more and more congested, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) is prosecuting illegal flying activities. SAFA is focussed on safety, the future of our sport and ensuring your freedom to fly continues.

We want to see you soar in this sport and fly high across Australian and overseas skies.
