Our intention for this website, currently under development, is to increase awareness and appreciation of the aircraft designed by F.G. Miles 

and his younger brother George and their impressive contribution to British aviation history.


Details of the aircraft produced, photo galleries, famous owners and pilots, published reference works, ephemera, scale models, artwork and much

more will be added in due course.


If this fascinates you too and you would like to

actively participate in preserving a unique range of

British light aircraft,

please contact the Hon. Gen. Secretary at:

M2Hawk@milesaircraftcollection.co.uk


The next few pages illustrate samples of the type of content we will have.

If you would like to send us copies of similar material to add please send
