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.

After the success achieved by the “I Quaderni di AIDA” initiative in 2021, this year too the Association has promoted itself to follow up on this editorial experience.
In fact, the second issue has been released: “ITALO BALBO AND THE TRANSFLIGHT ACROSS THE SOUTHERN ATLANTIC” by Claudio Riccardo Incerti.
With this study, the author has promised to shed light on the historical-philatelic narration, trying to provide an updated version of the countless writings that have dealt with this epic feat over the course of time.
The foreword by our President is available for reading below.
