The Royal Aero Club Trust is proud that its Collection includes many unique scrap books and albums of press cuttings that were compiled by or about three hugely influential aviation pioneers.

There are 20 volumes of Frank Hedges Butler Albums, chronicling the development of British aviation from its inception.


The Collection includes three Hon. C S Rolls Albums that were donated by the family after the great man's early death. This evocative material covers all the key events in his life, and show how Rolls' imagination had been captured from childhood by all forms of transportation.


The contribution to aviation made by Claude Grahame-White is fully captured in more than 50 Press Cutting Albums that include the London to Manchester air race of 1910, and his successful American Tour later that same year.
