The American Air Mail Society (AAMS) is the second oldest aerophilatelic society in the world, presently with about 800 members world-wide. It is a non-profit organization, qualified under the provisions of Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code as tax-exempt.
The Society promotes aerophilately through its publications, member auctions and an annual meeting held at major local and national stamp shows. It also holds a major airmail show every four or five years at the American Philatelic Society headquarters in Belefonte, PA.
One most important contribution by the Society has been it's set of the American Air Mail Catalogue which covers all areas of aerophilately. See our Catalogue Page.
