The power to inspire

The Royal International Air Tattoo is more than a world-class celebration of aviation... 

When you attend the show or buy merchandise, you are also directly supporting and inspiring the next generation of aviation enthusiasts.  

The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust benefits from the profits of all sales and has supported a diverse range of initiatives totalling millions of pounds - from engineering and flying scholarships to adventurous training grants.

"I would like to say a huge thank you to the RAF Charitable Trust for this opportunity of a lifetime. For those who have thought about learning to fly, this is, without a doubt, an amazing way to start! Thanks again for the scholarship, the generous supply of study materials, maps, and clothing - and the knowledge of flight that will last a lifetime." 

Hamish Hunter, RAF Benson, Junior Rank's Pilot Scholarship Scheme beneficiary (2020).  

"I would like to say a massive thank you to the RAF Charitable Trust for their funding and to the RAF Flying Clubs' Association for delivering my training.  I've had some of the best times in the skies and I'm only just beginning my journey..."
