Who are TAS ?

The Aviation Society or TAS as it is widely known, is based at Manchester Airport. It is the largest aviation society outside of London with over 1200 members and more than 45 years of unbroken experience. The aim of the Society is to bring together people with the same interest and provide them with the best facilities and information possible.

Manchester Airport, airlines and other aviation related organisations actively support us in the many varied activities that we organise for the Membership.  Our Members receive a monthly magazine with news and features about the Airport and all the events organised by the Society:- from trips to Airports at home and overseas to Behind the Scenes Tours at Airports to Social Evenings with prominent guest speakers from the “World of Aviation”.  TAS will have something for you!

The Society also has a commercial arm (TAS Trading Ltd) which operates The Aviation Shops, provides professional tour guides at the airports Runway Visitor Park and organises events such as the annual Aviation and Transport Festival.

It is the wealth of experience, comprehensive range of activities and close relationship with the airport that make TAS the success that it is today.

Members benefit from this success in many ways. You could too, by joining today… Click on above TAS membership tab for further information and application form.
