Quite A Journey From 2012 To Today

During its 8-year existence The Gliding Heritage Centre has enjoyed very generous backing from its supporters, both financial and through active participation in bringing our major projects to fruition. It all started with the £100k bequeathed by the late Chris Wills, and it is marvellous that the support to finance the development of a truly top-class heritage centre has continued.

We now have two 30m x 30m hangars and as of the 29th of January we announce that our 24m x 12m workshop is fully funded, and construction of the building should start in May.

However, the challenge of improving the GHC to be even better continues. Our next major project is going to be the extension of the second hangar, probably by a further 20m. A rough estimate of the construction cost is £120k. When we have more exact figures, we will update this page and likely introduce a “funding thermometer”.

Looking out over the horizon the vision is to construct a Museum building on the GHC meadow that will host displays and lectures, and also house our archives.

All donations to help us achieve our goals, whether short term or long, are most gratefully received.
