The Air League of the UK, formed in 1909, was, and still is designed, to keep the UK at the forefront of aviation – and thus continue to provide thousands of jobs within the UK in the aerospace and airline industries, one of the few valuable manufacturing and service industries left in the UK to-day.
The Air League UK has two main complementary activities :
- to support and lobby for the UK aerospace and aviation industries, in Parliament and the press
- to encourage air mindedness amongst the youth.
To this end, many scholarships, bursaries and awards are presented by the Air League at its Annual Reception in St James’s Palace or Buckingham Palace, hosted and presented by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, its Patron for over sixty years.
