International Fellowship of Flying Rotarians
Where Rotarians and aviators come together
“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward,
for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
– LEONARDO DA VINCI
WE ARE A PART OF THE ROTARY FAMILY!
we are people who make a difference
Rotary unites more than a million people
Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
We take action locally and globally
Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions.
No challenge is too big for us
For more than 110 years, we’ve bridged cultures and connected continents to champion peace, fight illiteracy and poverty, promote clean water and sanitation, and fight disease.
WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT AVIATION!
we welcome all with an interest in aviation
We are pilots and non-pilots together
Many of our members are pilots and enjoy flying to IFFR meetings. But we welcome equally non-flying members who enjoy aviation in all its guises. Our members fly planes, gliders, helicopters, balloons – some IFR and some VFR.
We have a wide range of aviation related activities
We hold fly-ins and fly-outs, visits to aviation related organisations, hold talks and discussions about aviation related subjects – and we have a booth at the House of Friendship at the Rotary International convention each year!
IFFR brings aviation and Rotary together
Our object is to promote the objects of Rotary through our shared interest in aviation, fostering high ethical and safety standards in all aspects of aviation.
WE ARE A GLOBAL FELLOWSHIP!
we are the fellowship where INternational means most
We’re one of the oldest and biggest Fellowships
Originally formed in 1965 in Seattle, USA, we now have around 1700 members worldwide: IFFR UK was formed in 1966.
Our members are part of a global family
Membership is open to Rotarians, Rotaractors, Rotary International Alumni and close family relations of Rotary members. Our members belong to sections (such as IFFR UK) in one of three regions (Europe, Americas and Australasia). We have members in nearly 60 countries!
We promote Rotary ideals around the world
With a widespread membership, we are perfectly placed to help further the ideals of Rotary, including international understanding, throughout the world.
