This week the Helicopter Museum was recognised as a ‘Recommended Venue of Education’ by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale.
The Museum is the first in England to receive the award and joins a list of only 17 other venues around the world which are recognised for educating the public in the history and practice of air sport, aeronautics and astronautics.
The award was presented to the museum’s founder, Elfan Ap Rees, in front of the World Speed Record Holder G-LYNX by UK representative of the FAI, David Monks. The rules for all official aviation records are defined by the Fédération Aéronautique International which also ratifies any claims and officially recorded the 400.87KPH speed record set by G-LYNX over 31 years ago.
“The award is testament to the hard work and dedication our team of volunteers has put towards the Museum’s Education Programme,” said the museum’s Manager Lee Mills, “We are delighted to be the first venue in England to be given this recommendation.”
The Helicopter Museum is a registered charity (no 281053) and home to the World’s largest collection of rotorcraft including two of the Queen’s Royal Flight Helicopters.
