The Air League is deeply committed to ensuring the UK’s future success in Aviation and Aerospace.

The Air League is a sector leading aviation and aerospace charity focused on changing lives through aviation. Its core purpose is to inspire young people from all backgrounds into the aviation and aerospace industries to champion the future of the British Aviation and Aerospace sectors.

Each year many hundreds of people from disadvantaged backgrounds benefit from Air League support to help them start a career, builds self-esteem and well-being, make them feel valued and realise what they can achieve.

We break down the perceived barriers to the aviation industry and through our scholarships and outreach programmes create a life-long impact on beneficiaries, many of which stay involved throughout their careers.

The Air League’s work brings strategic benefit to the UK economy. The UK remains a globally significant player in aviation and aerospace, and occupies world leading positions in design, development and manufacture of a wide range of technologies. However, the UK faces global competition for not only procurement contracts, investment in science and technology but for aviators and engineers as well.

Inspiring and enabling the next generation of aviation and aerospace leaders, pioneers and professionals across the full spectrum of disciplines is vital to the future economic success of the UK. The Air League’s work engaging and inspiring young people is therefore vital for the aviation and aerospace sector in the UK by providing the next generation of leaders, pioneers and professionals.
