The name Hampshire Aeroplane Club has a history stretching back as far as the 1920's, the orignal flying school played a big part in the development of liesure aviation in the south assisting hundreds in gaining their pilots licence.
The original Hampshire Aeroplane Club changed hands a number of times over the years, starting out its life at Hamble Airfield in 1926 it then moved to Eastliegh Aerodrome (now Southampton Airport) in 1932.
One notable member of HAC during the pre-war years was Reginald J. Mitchell the designer of the Supermarine Spitfire.
Other than the war years 1939-45 HAC remained in operation at Southampton Airport well into the 1960's before finally closing its doors.
