One of the benefits which membership of the Royal Air Force Flying Clubs Association (RAFFCA) brings to all of us is discounted purchase deals on a range of items from major suppliers.
A wide range of deals has now been available for over a year using the RAFFCA discount for headsets, GPS, kneeboards, radios etc etc. All club members - both military and civil are fully entitles to make use of these discounts. Speak to your club RAFFCA representative for details.
RAFFCA is keen to support Expeditions for member clubs, use of Enhanced Learning Credits for servicemen wishing to learn to fly, and to encourage participation by member clubs in competition flying events such as Air Racing, Precision Flying, Aerobatics and such things as TopNav. Some financial sponsorship may be available for service personnel in reducing the cost of participation in such events.
There are now quite a few flying clubs affiliated to RAFFCA and service members can take advantage of reciprocal membership arrangements to fly at other clubs for temporary period whilst on detachment or a visit.
