Digital Aviation Library
HOME CATALOGUE ABOUT


 Catalogue 

The Digital Aviation Library offers historical sources for aviation in electronic form. You will get references, sources and texts in order to advance you own research based on original sources. The Digital Aviation Library will be a guide and guidance for pilots, aviation historians, amateur historians, ethnographers, treasure hunters and for individuals who don't want to leave the academic path. Please remember, we began building this library on www.luftfahrt-bibliothek.de in the German language first. In the recent past we were beginning to build-up the library on www.aviation-library.org in the English language. For this reason, not all resources (PDF, documents, images, books, graphics, etc.) are still available in the English Catalogue.
