Welcome to Air-Britain

The world’s leading organisation for aviation enthusiasts!

Since 1948, Air-Britain has been bringing together spotters, historians, aviation writers, pilots and photographers - all having a passion for aircraft and aviation. Air-Britain is an international organisation with 3,000 members - many of them outside the UK. It is a registered charity (the Air-Britain Trust Ltd.) run by a board of volunteers who are elected by the members of the organisation.

We publish two magazines - the monthly Air-Britain News and the quarterly Aviation World. We also produce authoritative books for the spotting community - and historical books on a wide range of aviation topics.

Join us here and find out about the many faces of Air-Britain and how it can bring you into the exciting world of aviation.

AFQR Update April 6th
At the close of business today, all orders received up to April 2nd have been processed and despatched. Note that postal services in some areas are restricted, so your order may take longer to arrive.
Due to a fault with our e-mail system not all order acknowledgements have been sent out, so please do not chase for now.
Also due to an error in the March Air-Britain News, the wrong prices were quoted. All who have sent in post orders with cheques for £9.95 will have their orders returned and asked for cheques for the correct amount - £11.00 for members and £13.50 for non-members.

Remember that although we are getting orders through the our system and out promptly, the Post Office is not functioning properly in all areas, so any delay is quite possibly down to that part of the delivery chain.
