The Italo-Finnish Aeronautical Institute is a no-profit cultural organization part of the Civil Aviation Society of Italy and devoted to study historical relations between Italy and Finland in the respective aeronautical fields. The idea to create an international branch of the Civil Aviation Society of Italy, based in Helsinki, is the result of hard work and of a strong dream of spreading, to the future generations of Finland and Italy the historical and industrial relations that made those Aviations the strongest, advanced and most prestigious of the World during the last century and still nowadays.
The Italo-Finnish Aeronautical Institute is a registered organization recognized by the Italian Law, composed mainly by aviation professionals and all those passionate by aviation from the industrial, historical, military and commercial point of view. The Institute is formally associated to the Civil Aviation Society of Italy, a no-profit cultural organization born to enhance the Italian Aeronautical heritage. The Civil Aviation Society of Italy is a Cultural Institution founded in Lido di Camaiore, Italy the November 18th, 2017, that unifies all former and current employees of the Civil Aviation Industry, Airlines, Government, Air Force, students from Aeronautical Schools and, also, simple Aviation fans. We are committed on the historical and scientific research about the evolution of the Aeronautical Industry through cultural events as conferences, round-tables and literary works thanks to the support of the Italian Aeronautical Authorities.
The Civil Aviation Society of Italy, since his creation, was looking for spreading his network of activities through the Transatlantic World by opening an independent national branch. In 2018 the Civil Aviation Society of Italy organized a Scientific Mission “Chione” in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, marking the first step for our way through the North. Since the beginning the National Military and Civil authorities of Greenland and Denmark showed great interest to our Scientific Mission and offered their generous contribution in all our activities. In 2019, after the move of the Society’s President in Finland, the idea of founding our first independent Nordic Branch came into reality, with the creation of the Italo-Finnish Aeronautical Institute.
The Italo-Finnish Aeronautical Institute aims to promote of historical and cultural relations between Italy and Finland from the aeronautical point-of-view, organizing cultural events as conferences, seminars and round-tables constantly creating opportunities and synergies between the two countries. One important mission of our Institute is to involve universities, schools and academies in order to spread between the Scandinavian and Italian young generations the passion for Aviation as well as for the glorious Heroes of the National Aviation of our countries. The Institute organizes those cultural events gathering together important local institutions and Aviation industries thanks to the voluntary and free-basis contribution of Finland and Italian Authorities.
