Who we are ...

Air NORTH was founded in 1960 by staff members of Newcastle Airport, and today, as then, we aim to record the history of aviation in the North-East and North-West of England.

Our members receive a monthly magazine which is full of information regarding local aviation. The core of the magazine is un-paralleled monthly coverage of Newcastle Airport, adding to a historical archive available nowhere else. The region's smaller airfields and landing strips feature too, with news of local fly-ins and airshows. A comprehensive military section is included, not only recording past events but giving dates of future deployments and airshows, while a major part of the magazine is the publication of members' articles, offering a great read on a diverse range of aviation subjects.

What we offer ...

As well as our monthly magazine, Air NORTH members gain access to daily retrospective Newcastle Airport Movement information on the sister-site maintained by our Editor ( Members also receive a substantial discount on a huge range of books provided by Air Britain.
