In 1909, when The Air League was founded, aviation was in its infancy, but the founders had the vision to recognise its potential for civil and military use. The Air League has never lost that vision and is as active as ever in promoting an interest in aviation among young people through the offer of Flying Scholarships and Bursaries; in supporting the development of effective military aviation; in stimulating internationally competitive aircraft manufacturing and air transport industries and in encouraging general aviation in this country. – HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh
