The National Aeroplane Fund was sanctioned by the Aero Club of America in response to perceived military and political disinterest in aeronautics. Established in summer 1915, the group lobbied Congress to increase funding for military aeronautics and independently instituted programs to develop aviation in the National Guard and to form a civilian aviation reserve.
