Volunteering forms the backbone of any charitable group or project. We are currently a small team of volunteers working on the aircraft during volunteer working days. Other volunteers are involved with creating and maintaining the website, doing admin and generally helping where help is needed.
If you have a particular skill or service you could bring to the project, and you would like to help, please email us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not have a particular skill but would like to work on the restoration, this would be a great opportunity to acquire experience and learn whilst working. In the current economic climate where young people are struggling to get onto apprenticeships, this project is a chance for would-be engineers or college students who are interested in aviation, engineering or manufacturing.
Volunteering with the Britannia Aircraft Preservation Trust would meet the volunteering requirements of the Duke of Edinburgh awards.
If you are not sure, come and visit us during a volunteer working day to see what we do. Visit our volunteer working days page for upcoming dates.
The Trust has a Health and Safety Statement and requires all volunteers to observe any health and safety requirements when working on the aircraft. If you chose to volunteer with us, this will be discussed with you before you begin work on the aircraft.
The Trust is fully insured under public liability insurance.
