Air-Britain Travel organises tours for members and their immediate family from the UK to many areas. Apart from Western Europe and the continental USA, trips have been made to Alaska, Australia and Eastern Europe.
Our tours have the proven ability to get to those aviation locations that others cannot reach. We cater for all tastes, including airliners, Bizjets, military base visits, air shows, factory visits, ramp tours where none have been successful before, gliding championships etc. and all usually in a single trip!
Our tours are top quality, value for money and limited to 30 to allow space to stretch out in the coach, which is owned and operated by an Air-Britain member.
Each tour is described in detail in Aviation World highlighting the incredibly brilliant organisation, unnerving navigation and tentative parking.
Advertised tours always run unlike some other organisations, except in the event of something exceptional happening. We have only cancelled one trip in 28 years and that was scheduled to depart for the USA just four weeks after 9/11.
The camaraderie on these trips is second to none which is why members keep coming back for more.
Unfortunately to travel on these tours you MUST be a member of Air-Britain. What more reason do you require to join?
