The Aviation Environment Federation (AEF) is the principal UK non-profit making organisation concerned with the environmental effects of aviation. These range from aviation noise issues associated with small airstrips or helipads to the contribution of airline emissions to global warming (the current climate change). The AEF is widely quoted in international media as a source of research and analysis on issues related to aviation and the environment.[1][2][3][4][5]

The AEF was established in 1975 and now has over 120 affiliated members comprising community and environmental groups, local authorities, parish councils, businesses and consultancies.

AEF is a member of AirportWatch, a UK-wide network of conservation and residents’ groups, and GreenSkies, an umbrella organisation comprising all the major European NGOs who hold a stake in aviation policy.
