SPONSOR AN AIRCRAFT

We realize that some of you have favorites. The fixed cost to stage a classic aircraft often exceeds $50,000 per year. And if you actually fly it, the operating cost, particularly for the Rolls Royce Merlin–powered aircraft and jets, can exceed $3,000 per hour. To help defray the expenses of showing and flying your favorite aircraft, perhaps you would like to channel your generosity in that direction. For each gift of $5,000, we will add the name of the donor or designee to the “Flight Crew” for that aircraft. The current crew manifest will be placed on board whenever the aircraft goes “wheels up.” E-mail donate@historicflight.org for more info.

AIRCRAFT

Historic Flight has been approached by generous individuals concerning outright donation of an aircraft, or perhaps its inclusion in a temporary display. These offers joyfully demonstrate a donor’s commitment to aviation heritage. Historic Flight welcomes the opportunity to develop an arrangement beneficial to the donor and consistent with its programs.

AVIATION MEMORABILIA

Similarly, if log books, maintenance manuals, uniforms, tools, flying attire, equipment and aviation books no longer have a place in your home, hangar, or the home or hangar of a relative, they might be of continuing benefit to historians and enthusiasts. Historic Flight offers its library and collection of memorabilia and artifacts in a public reading room and archive.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Your passion and interest are always appreciated! Whether as a tour guide, marshal or administrator, you can play a role that’s as educational and exciting for you as it is for us. To learn more about volunteering at Kilo-7, e-mail volunteer@historicflight.org.

    I am a pilot, just recently finished my Canadian CPL and multi-ifr, I talked to a pilot at the CYXX airshow about a ‘2nd in command’ program, and am wondering where I can get more information about it.

    I would absolutely love to volunteer as a pilot for any of your beautifully kept aircraft. If you have any information or questions please e-mail me, thanks!
