Founded in 1909, the Air League is the UK’s leading aviation, aerospace, and space charity that changes lives. Breaking down the barriers into these industries through its scholarships and outreach programmes
Through its programmes and projects, the Air League increases social mobility, breaks down the perceived barriers and acts as a catalyst to spark the inspiration and realisation that opportunities and possibilities are accessible to anyone.
We’re a diverse and inclusive youth organisation, sponsored by the Royal Air Force, that is keen to embrace opportunities in Air, Space and Cyberspace. We hold national camps as well as focused activities and experiences in flying, gliding, sport, adventurous training, drill, target shooting and cyber skills among others. We also can help you academically with BTECs in Aerospace Studies and Space Studies.
Our Honorary Air Commandant is HRH The Princess of Wales and we want people to become Air Cadets from all backgrounds and abilities.
The BWPA is a membership organisation that exists to support women who fly or who are learning to fly, and to encourage participation in aviation by women who have yet to try it. Members are of all ages, experience and backgrounds but share a common passion.
Your membership supports us in our outreach initiatives, and helps us fund scholarships for female pilots across the country.
Formed in 1955, the BWPA came into being ten years after World War II Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) women pilots had been thanked for their services to their country. This was a time when women were allowed to work, but only in jobs deemed appropriate for the fairer sex, and they were expected to give up work to look after home and husband upon marriage.
One of the biggest problems facing the aviation industry is a lack of diversity. Limited support and systemic barriers make it hard for underrepresented groups to access the exciting opportunities on offer in the Airline Pilot industry.
As the only programme of its kind, this pioneering course brings together pilots from leading airlines, aviation professionals and flight training organisations to help launch BAME people and women into the aviation industry.
The aim of the project is to raise awareness, particularly amongst women and girls but also people from diverse backgrounds, about aviation as a potential career choice. We are keen to encourage and offer opportunities to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Working with schools and aviation organisations our aim is to inspire those we work with to learn to fly and to enthuse them about aviation.
The Historic Aircraft Association (HAA) was founded in 1979 with the aim of furthering the safe flying of historic aircraft in the UK and, later on, supporting the restoration and preservation of these aircraft.
The Association, which currently has over 200 active pilot and engineer members, has made a major contribution to General Aviation, ensuring that British flying heritage is kept alive by promoting the safe flying of valuable, historic and heritage aircraft.
The UK Air Display scene is flourishing, with more air displays taking place in this country every year than in the whole of the rest of Europe put together.
We are a Livery Company of the City of London; a philanthropic membership organisation which represents and protects the interests and welfare of pilots and navigators and strives to encourage and assist all those (from any background) who wish to become a pilot.
We assist those who wish to become pilots through scholarships, mentoring, networking and advice from experienced pilots.
We can help you find the training path that best suits your needs, support you as you fly and work with you to prepare for your career in aviation. Find out how the modular training route can cost you around half what an integrated school will charge.
Your pilot training, your way.
Aerobility is a UK based, registered charity. Founded in 1993, we change lives by providing anyone, with any disability with access to the magic and wonder of flight.
We do this because taking the controls of an aircraft drives a focus on capability and encourages our flyers to ask the question ‘If I can fly an aeroplane, what else can I do?’
This makes everything else in life feel that little bit more achievable, whilst offering the ultimate feeling of freedom and escape from restrictions of disability.
Aerobility represents the needs of those living with disability in to aviation and is recognised as the leading expert in disabled flying.
From humble beginnings back in 1993 to our current fleet of 4 aircraft with a head office at Blackbushe and operations from Tatenhill as well, we support nearly 1,000 disabled people per year with access to the magic and wonder of flight.
Aerobility also provides advice, knowledge and advocacy for disabled people who wish to fly, and is the representative body for disabled aviation within the UK.
