Airfield Research Group

ARGL was incorporated in 2014 and gained charitable status in the same year with the object ‘To advance the education of the general public by carrying out research into, and maintaining records of, military and civilian airfields and related infrastructure, both current and historic, anywhere in the world’. The charity was created by the amalgamation of its heritage organisations Airfield Research Group and AiX-ARG Archives Ltd. Airfield Research Group, established in 1977, was the main member driven organisation that had established an unparalleled archive of historical records associated with the history and development of airfields. The charity continues proudly to be widely regarded as the UK's foremost authority on the airfield historical record.

With the advent and proliferation of the internet, Airfield Information Exchange was created in 2009 as a forum for the exchange of airfield related information and research. A logical move was to come together with the Airfield Research Group to form a subsidiary, AiX - ARG Archive Ltd and hence the internet forum became the public forum of ARG, eventually culminating in the formation of the charity.
