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 2,800 members - many of them outside the UK. It is a registered charity (the Air-Britain Trust Ltd.) run by a board of Trustees 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.

Shipping update - after our own version of a Suez Canal blockage (although our software blockage was before the Ever Given), orders are now flowing again.Over 400 orders were despatched by the team led by John last week and there are over 300 to be processed this week. One of the side-effects of this is that our e-mail system gets overwhelmed and some e-mail confirmations do not go through.
