Hermann Buttigieg welcomes you to the Aviation in Malta web site.
Having been a colony of Great Britain for 164 years (1800-1964), and serving as a base for Britain's Armed Forces for a further 15, Malta was introduced to the world of aviation from a very early start.
From the construction of the first seaplane base at Kalafrana in 1916 to the ravages of World War Two, the build up for the Suez canal, through four hi-jacks, and on to today's Malta International Air show, Malta has seen almost all the uses an aircraft can be put to.
About this web site

Data in the first column, (usually a date, registration or aircraft type) in bold red text indicates new information. Bold text elsewhere indicates corrected or that additional information has been added since the last update.
