Bureau of Aeronautics (BuAer) Newsletters

The Bureau of Aeronautics Newsletters and CNO Aviation Weekly Report/Newsletter are the forerunners to the Naval Aviation News magazine. These reports/newsletters begin in 1917 and run through 1942. The Bureau of Aeronautics Newsletter was renamed Naval Aviation News in 1943. These newsletters contain valuable information about the development of early naval aviation, the activities of naval air stations and squadrons, as well as information about the commissioning and assignment of individual personnel. The newsletters for 1917 through 1942 have been scanned as PDF files and are posted below. More scans will be added over time.
