Historic British Aviation Advertisements Archive
         

 

These listings will provide optimised pre-defined searches for companies and products listed in the database.  There are currently over 2,000 companies recorded so expect the listings to be under continuous development. By default searches are from 'Start Year' 1909 to 'End Year 1980*' - This may result in numerous pages of results - to refine your search set new 'Start' and 'End ' years from the first page of results and press Search.
(Please note that post 1970 listings are limited to small number of selected items such as RAF Recruitment) As part of this process the opportunity is also being taken to refine database entries and carry out other housekeeping tasks such as 'typo corrections' and the removal of duplicate entries.

 

Pages Under Development - Updated Daily - Items marked with an asterisk may return too many non relevant
results for general searches (these companies will be sub classifed in due course.) Meanwhile for best results
use specific search terms and bracket by year. eg. Pegasus or De Havilland or Moth (1927-1929)
