The foundation board regularly had to deal with requests for support and contributions for a wide variety of aviation projects. Many of these requests however could not be considered for reasons of principle. But applications for contributions for Swiss aviation proposals relating to information, aviation history and aerophilately did enjoy the board’s favour. So in addition to the regular financial contributions to the Swiss Aero Club the following campaigns were supported:
