Is Flight Available to Buy?

No, sorry. The Flight magazine is only available as one of the benefits of membership of the Bird Stamp Society.

A FREE sample copy is available to download on the Flight issues page here.

Can I Contribute An Article to Flight?

The short answer is ‘Yes’, although there are some caveats.

We actively encourage ANYONE to submit material for the Flight magazine. At the moment, most content is contributed by Bird Stamp Society members.

However, non-members may contribute any material, although, sadly, we cannot pay you for publishing your article. We also must state that we welcome articles but reserve the right to publish.

Material the Flight Editor welcomes includes:

  • Articles – including specialist articles on particular species or themes; personal experiences of stamp collecting; general articles on anything to do with collecting bird stamps;
  • Notes – for example your collections; queries you may have on stamps; shows you have attended etc;
  • Information – for example on stamp shows, exhibitions, new issues, and
  • News.

Content can be of any length and produced preferably in Word or submitted as a .pdf document. If you have any questions about this subject, then please contact the Editor at

Can I change the Way I Receive Flight?

Yes, you can change from receiving Flight via email to receiving Flight by hardcopy, in the post, or vice versa.

In both cases, the membership subs will be altered accordingly.

If you wish to change the way you receive Flight, then please contact the membership secretary. Contact details may be found on the Join Us page here
