About SAAM

SAAM is a non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers. Our focus is to record and display the history of aviation in South Australia. We have two large display hangars with more than 20 aircraft displayed along with many other aerospace and aviation related displays. Our maintenance and restoration hangar is often described as 'the best men's shed' in Adelaide. SAAM also has an extensive library collection that is available for use by SAAM members (and bona fide researchers). Our history group conducts research on South Australian aviators and aviation and publish their research on this website and in books. If you would like to join us as a SAAM member, click here for more information.
