Association is a non-profit making organisation open to anyone interested in aviation. The
aims of the Association are to get the would be aviator into the air as cheaply as
possible and to promote the design and construction of Ultra-light and Microlight
The LAA works in close harmony with the Civil Aviation Authority providing
unparalleled service to the operators of Special Category Certificates of
Airworthiness aircraft. The LAA has Parliamentary approval to recommend or restrict the issue of such certificates,
a privilege and responsibility of which it is justifiably proud.
The North Western Strut is a regional branch of the Light Aircraft Association and
provides social evenings where the talk is of flying, building and restoring. Guest
speakers appear, films are shown, aeronautical bits and pieces exchanged,
plans and technicalities are discussed. In addition a newsletter of special interest to
members in the Northwest is published every month.
The Strut is organised as a self supporting club within the LAA organisation
and elects its own officers at its AGM each February. A small subscription
is charged to cover the cost of the newsletter, its postage, and other costs
- this is in addition to the cost of membership to the LAA
If you are thinking of building, (or buying), flying and maintaining a simple small
aircraft yourself under the Special Category of C. of A. does it not make sense to make
contact with those of like mind?. You could join with others to run and fly an ultra-light
plane as a group. Again the Strut is there to help. Theres a wealth of knowledge and
experience in our ranks which is yours for the asking. Come and join us, you will be more
The North Western Strut does not give flying instruction for student pilots, but can
supply information about which schools and flying clubs within its general area provide
