The Retired Staff Association (RSA) welcomes anyone who has previously left, retired or is intending to retire from the CAA, NATS or HIAL together with their spouses or partners. With almost 5,000 members, the RSA’s main aims are to facilitate communications and social activities between former colleagues and to represent their interests in pensions matters.

Our RSA Facebook group facebook share and Twitter account Twitter enable members to keep in touch
with news and a wide range of topics.

Our Branches around the UK hold regular meetings and organise various events including lectures, lunches, walks and seasonal outings. Each Branch will hold an AGM allowing members to debate and vote on Branch activities and elect a Committee for the following year to manage these activities.

A National AGM is combined with a Gala Weekend and is held each Springtime. This event is held at attractive locations around the UK. Activities include: -

A separate RSA reunion is arranged annually to enable members from across the UK to congregate in a central location in the Autumn to socialise over drinks and a buffet lunch. The RSA also supports and encourages member-based activities e.g., retired member golf societies, aviation or motor enthusiast groups and the like.

The RSA is a member of the Occupational Pensioners Alliance (OPA) lobbying the Government and other Statutory bodies on emerging legislation that could impact on the lives and living standards of all pensioners.

We also maintain close links with the Trustee and Directors of CAAPS (the CAA Pension Scheme - covering both the CAA and NATS Defined Benefit pension schemes). We participate in the selection of Member Nominated Directors to the Board of CAAPS and we provide representation to the NATS Pension Committee.

Annual subscription of the RSA costs only £12- payable directly from your CAAPS pension, standing order or bank transfer – whichever you prefer!
