The Australian Aerobatic Club (AAC) was formed in 1970. The club was formed to foster interest in the sport by providing opportunities to train and compete. For pilots and non-pilots alike the club also provides opportunities to learn and practice the judging techniques of competition aerobatics. The AAC is responsible for the administration of the sport of aerobatics in Australia. It acts through the Australian Sport Aviation Confederation Incorporated, which is in turn responsible to the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI). The FAI is the international organisation, which is responsible for the regulation of aviation sports worldwide. The governing commission of the FAI, which regulates sport aerobatics, in particular is called the Commission Internationale de Voltige Aerienne or CIVA. Australia sends one delegate with full voting rights to the annual CIVA meeting. The AAC, while responsible for the oversight of State Chapters is also responsible for selecting and supporting the teams that compete overseas at International contests.
