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. Despite its many activities, Air-Britain is a virtual organisation without the trappings of offices and permanent staff.

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.
