The Aeronautical Journal was a major British periodical, published by the Aeronautical Society of Great Britain (later the Royal Aeronautical Society; journal changed name to Journal of the Royal Aeronautical Society).

The AJ regularly published lists of British and American aero patents of interest. The dates given in the Journal are the dates of application.[1]

Printer was: King, Sell, & Railton, Ltd., 12, Gough Square, 4, Bolt Court, and 4, Birchin Lane, E.C.

Many issues are available in Harvard's Widener library: [1]. Peter's using nice bound copies of the 1909-1911 issues from there.


  1. Based a date correspondence with Neilson, 1910, Aeroplane Patents, and its stated rationale about a patent's term beginning with the date of application, that AJ's dates are application dates. (Confirmed by Patent GB-1895-10239 which has a full-text scan on espacenet; date given in AJ is the date of application.)
