The launch of Miles Aircraft - The Post-War Years 1945 to 1948 at the Museum of Berkshire Aviation, Woodley on Saturday 23 July 2016 with visiting aircraft at White Waltham. 'A fantastic day' according to author Peter Amos where the centre of attention was not just the aircraft at White Waltham but the superb ex-F.G. Miles 1935 Rolls Royce Phantom II together with owner Dave Lyons which attended both locations. The hoped for opportunity of photographing the car with an appropriate Miles aircraft to recreate the c.1937 publicity photos of it with Monarch G-AFCR was achieved thanks to Peter Bishop's lovely Whitney Straight. Sincere thanks to all those who helped make it such a memorable occasion.

1947 Messenger 2A c/n 6703 SE-BYY, ex-G-AKAO has been advertised for sale on the website for only €20,000.00 or c.£14,000.00

Currently painted in quasi-RAF colours, it hasn't flown for many years (CofA expired in 1970 and wings were unsympathetically removed to fit into the museum we believe) and would probably be a seriously expensive restoration project.

Our intention for this website 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:

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