The GHC 2nd Hangar Appeal

Second Hangar Artists Impression

The Gliding Heritage Centre 2nd hangar appeal fund has been launched, the target is to raise funds for the construction of a desperately needed second hangar to hold the ever expanding GHC glider collection.

This second hangar will be exactly the same size as the first; 30 metres by 30 metres, the projected cost for this urgently required extension of GHC hangar space is in the order of 150,000.

Thanks to your generosity, we have raised so far 126.832.

Preparing Floor

The last major job of building hangar 2 is the laying of the concrete floor, we are planning to start doing this towards the end of the coming week.

Today, nearly 30 volunteers came out to assist with preparing the first segment for concrete laying.

Firstly, the ground below was given its final levelling before being covered with a thin layer of sand to support and protect the waterproof membrane above.

A grill of reinforcing steel was then placed on top, being held in place with plastic mountings that allow the concrete to flow all around it when poured.

A good team effort.

There are a number of historically important vintage gliders at Lasham that we must exhibit, we cannot do this without a second hangar, we really need your help to enable us to do so.
