Mike Milln: The Royal Aero Club of SA

Posted on: Mon 28 May 2018

Mike Milln, a volunteer at the South Australian Aviation Museum (SAAM) has written two books about the Royal Aero Club of SA, with profits going to the SAAM.

In the exciting early days of record-breaking flights and the birth of commercial aviation, the Club was at the forefront of Adelaide society.

Mike chats about the early aviation pioneers: the airline builders, the characters, the pageants, the air races and the crashes. Mike’s a great aviation enthusiast whose knowledge of the Royal Aero Club of SA is probably second to none!
