RAA 2021 Election in Governing Bodies Posted September 11 All candidates are required to disclose any financial interest in aviation on their election statement. I would expect candidates to have some "skin in the game" and as RAA members they should have some aviation experience. I would be suspicious of someone who does not fly wanting to be a Director, also someone who is, say, the Largest Importer of Ultralights might try to use his influence. But at the end of the day they are one voice in 7. The Board need to know a lot about running a business. setting policy and negotiating with Govts.
