American Air Mail Society Founded 1923

Aerophilately 2022


We are pleased to announce that an all-airmail National Level exhibition is planned to be held at the American Philatelic Center, home of the American Philatelic Society, in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, on October 21-23, 2022. An application has been submitted to CANEJ, the APS Committee responsible for World Series of Philately exhibitions in the United States, to make this a one-time WSP show. All exhibits will have an airmail or aviation scope and purpose.

While exhibiting will be a large part of the show, there will be dealers with all types of philatelic material, seminars and all types of presentations having an aerophilatelic theme, a show banquet with upscale cocktail hour, and much more. With an undertaking this large we will need help from as many of our members possible, who plan to attend, both before or during the show. If you have an area of the show where you would like to help, contact the Chairman of the Organizing Committee.

We are so very appreciative of the financial support that we have already received, with more expected. So far, the following philatelic auction firms have offered their support:

While many details are yet to be developed, we are looking forward to presenting a show at least as wonderful as the past 2007 and 2014 Aerophilately shows. Your help is needed!

More information will be provided as it becomes available.  To offer your help or to seek further information please contact:
