The Light Aircraft Association (previously called the Popular Aircraft Association) is the representative body in the United Kingdom for amateur aircraft construction, recreational flying and sport flying. I am trying to compile a list of all the aircraft that have visited their national rallies over the years. Any additional information / corrections would be gratefully received.

Credits - Thanks go to Paul Rushton, Alan Preece, Howard Curtis and the The North Weald Marshalling team and all the staff in Jeff Bell's ATC team for help with the Sywell reports.

Credit also to Aerodata and Planebase aircraft databases, Air-Britain, LASS International, SWAG trip reports and members of the Airfield 2020 email group and the LAA Rallies Past & Present Facebook group
