Welcome to the Milton Keynes Aviation Society.

We are a friendly group of enthusiasts who meet each month to hear high quality speakers on a variety of aviation topics. Have a look at our Lecture Programme and come along as a visitor for £5 (no charge for members).

We visit RAF/USAF bases, special events, manufacturers, etc. as you can see from our Visits Programme. There is usually no charge for members other than a donation to a charity chosen by our host. Members receive a monthly MKAS Newsletter.

Membership costs £22 per year (Membership Form on the Archives and Documents page).

As the Milton Keynes Branch of Air-Britain our members can buy top class Air-Britain publications at a substantial discount.
