Abstract

THE Society of British Aircraft Constructors was incorporated as a company, limited by guarantee and with no share capital, on March 29, 1916. It is, therefore, junior to the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Royal Aero Club, but senior by two years to the Air Ministry and the Royal Air Force, and the elder of many other official, semi‐official and commercial organizations which the expansion of aviation has brought into being during the past thirty‐five years. The Society is young enough to retain within its counsels today many who were well‐known and active in the industry in the time of formation; old enough to have acquired a body of experience unique in its field and for its records to begin to qualify as history, of which some aspects at least carry interest worthy of the columns of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING.
