 Who Are We

The Airtourer Association is a group of enthusiasts for the Australian designed Airtourer Aircraft. A related but separate organisation is the Airtourer Co-operative which owns the intellectual property of the Airtourer design and is responsible for ongoing airworthiness. The Airtourer Co-operative has the support of the Airtourer Association and is included in the web site. Please explore our site and share our enthusiasm for a great little aeroplane.

The Association was thrilled to meet Henry's daughter Helen and son Richard at the President's Fly-in over the weekend of 19th & 20th September 2015. They were joined by grandson Sebastian who has been a member and supporter of the Association for many years. Seb was joined by his son Marcus and younger brother Albert.

Richard and Helen had flown in Airtourers, including the original wooden Airtourer FMM with their father as children. When the opportunity to experience the Airtourer again was offered they gladly accepted.

Five of the formation endorsed members gathered for the flight to Wagga Wagga flying over the city before a pass over the airport before finally landing. Helen commented that it was the longest she had spent straight and level in an Airtourer. Apparently Henry enjoyed demonstrating the manoeuvrability he designed into the aircraft.
