Join us

AEF formed as a federation of member groups and individuals concerned about aviation impacts and we continue to rely on our membership today. We aim to represent the views of those directly affected by airport and airfield operations, overflights and airspace changes as well as those who join AEF simply to support our work and objectives, including on climate change. One of our major strengths is that our work is shaped and reinforced by real-world examples from our members.

2) AEF’s members-only updates and our e-newsletter. These will include alerts of important policy updates or the publication or relevant consultations, and invitations to help inform AEF’s engagement with policy-makers.

3) Attendance at our Annual General Meeting and other seminars and events.
