How to Join
What is The Spitfire Society?
The Spitfire Society was founded in March,
1984 by former Spitfire pilot Group Captain David Green. Its
original purpose was to link people throughout the world whose
lives had in some way been concerned with the legendary WW2
fighter. Since achieving the status of a nationally Registered
Charity (299033), the Society has widened its horizons. It now
encourages the interest of the many aviation enthusiasts of all ages who wish to support its aims:
To encourage students of aeronautics,
astronautics, aviation history and associated subjects in their
To research, study and assess the educational
and historical value of information relating to the Spitfire,
its design, development and operations.
To disseminate accurate information of
historical and educational value on aeronautical subjects by
means of presentations, seminars, lectures and the publication
of books and articles.
Or let me put it another way:
Do you like aeroplanes? Yes? Good start. Do you like
Spitfires? Yes? Even better. Can you tell the difference between a MK Vb and a MK Vc
at 200 paces? No? Me neither.
What I'm trying to say is that it doesn't
matter if you're not a walking information database on
Spitfires. If you're enthusiastic about aviation and fancy the
idea of hanging out with Spitfire pilots and like-minded people - then come and join
us - we'd love to hear from you.
