Aerophily and Aeropostal History

AIDA, “Italian Association of Aerophilately”, was founded in 1958 by a group of airmail collectors with the aim of increasing and promoting air mail study in all its forms, sectors or specialization. By following in the footsteps of founders, the members who succeeded until today, have never missed to reach the original goals. Organizing of “Day of Aerophilately” and publishing of magazine “AIDA Flash” accompained its journey up to present day.

I Quaderni di A.I.D.A.

The publication of “I Quaderni di AIDA” is about to start a special edition promoted by our Association with intention to propose again in the future but without a defined periodicity. The first issue published a study edited by Emilio Milisenda, on the occasion of the 90th ANNIVERSARY OF THE MEETING OF “GRAF ZEPPELIN” WITH “MALYGHIN”.
This is a report / study of over 60 pages that describes in detail all the aspects connected to this event and which will be distributed for free to our members together with the number 171 of AIDAFlash.
Emilio Milisenda, our member, is already the author of other well-known publications relating to other polar expeditions.
It is possible to read the genesis of this NEW initiative from the words of our President reported below…..
