Recreational Aviation Australia (abbreviated to RAA or RAAus), formerly known as the Australian Ultralight Federation (AUF), is the governing body for ultralights in Australia.[3]

RAAus registers ultralight aircraft and issues pilot certificates through 170 approved flight training facilities under a delegation from the nation's aviation regulator, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.[1]

"Accessible, safe aviation for all by being an industry leader in developing sport and recreational aviation for the fun and enjoyment of our members"[4]
