Sponsorship Appeal

The Guild is actively seeking Sponsorship for its Annual Exhibition held each Summer at the Mall Galleries in central London.

This exhibition's success is recognised throughout the world from the positive publicity campaign, its artist numbers and visitors.

The Guild is the largest and most successful Art Group in Europe with over 500 members. Its senior artists are the world's leading and most readily recognised aviation artists, including Michael Turner FGAvA (President), Gerald Coulson VPGAvA, John Young VPGAvA VPASAA (USA) and David Shepherd CBE VPGAvA.

Valuable publicity can be gained from an association with the Guild's major event. Our links with our sponsors speak for themselves.

Companies, Groups or individuals are sought to assist in supporting our continued expansion and media exposure on a regular basis.

We record the past, present and future in all things related to flying. Join us.
