Although Britain holds a clear lead in European military aircraft and defence systems, there is still a need to ensure that government support, in the light of the so-called 'peace dividend', does not slip below a critical mass.

Air shows, such as this one at Hendon in 1930, were turned into Empire Air Days by the Air League at scores of airfields around the country.
