Welcome to Air-Britain
Formed in 1948 - a major Membership based Aviation Organisation with 3,800 members worldwide
The Air-Britain Trust Ltd
The following statement was released by Air-Britain at 18.00 on 25th April, 2015
Air-Britain is pleased to announce a major development in its work as the leading international organisation for aviation historians and enthusiasts. In a significant move, Air-Britain has been granted Charitable Status and will, in future, operate as The Air-Britain Trust Ltd.
Speaking on behalf of the organisation, Chairman, Rod Simpson explained that "for 67 years, Air-Britain has been a guardian of our aviation heritage, bringing together many thousands of aviation historians, worldwide. In recent times, many of these individuals have donated their aviation research records, photographic libraries and other significant historical material on the understanding that Air-Britain will take care of them and in the knowledge that there is limited interest in preserving these valuable archives by other organisations. As a registered charity we will have particular ability to carry out and extend this valuable work and also to expand our publishing and other activities for the benefit of both Air-Britain members and the public generally". Being a Charity will allow Air-Britain to move forward with plans to create a permanent home for its rare historical records and to make them more accessible. In particular, the Air-Britain team is anxious to encourage the wider public into having a better understanding of our heritage of aircraft and aviation. We are particularly keen to encourage younger people to join the aviation enthusiasm and historical research experience our current members enjoy and, hopefully, to join with other Air-Britain members who gain benefit from the organisation's resources, magazines and book publishing.
