Europe Air Sports (EAS) is the voice of sports and recreational aviation in Europe. Established in 1988 as a non-profit organisation, and since 1994 affiliated to the global Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI), our objective is the long-term promotion and protection of sports and recreational aviation in Europe.

In particular our mission is to represent the interests of pilots and light aircraft owners / operators in civil aviation regulatory developments.
