UAViators, People’s Mosquito, Hawker Typhoon RB396 Restoration, Project Phoenix

In this edition I to introduce you to four important aviation related projects run by volunteers who give their time and energy for the benefit of others.

1. With close to 3,000 members in over 120 countries the UAViators Humanitarian UAV Network’s mission is to promote the safe, coordinated and effective use of UAVs for data collection and cargo delivery in a wide range of humanitarian and development settings. They do this by developing and championing international guidelines for the responsible use of UAVs.

They actively promote operational safety and document lessons learned and best practices.

They never self-deploy and only mobilize at the request of established aid and development partners.

Visit UAViators.org to learn more, to register as a pilot, and to engage in discussions.

2. The People’s Mosquito project team has a simple vision: to see the return of the de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito to the skies above Britain.

This not-for-profit restoration project is a registered charity whose aim is to inform and educate the public and future generations on the Mosquito and its place in history.

They will achieve this aim by restoring and returning this important aircraft to the sky, in conjunction with building a valuable web-based Mosquito resource.

Their motto is: ‘To fly; To educate; To remember’. Through flying displays around the country and an ‘open hangar’ policy with an emphasis on education they aim to communicate to future generations the importance to the war effort of the Mosquito during World War Two.

At the same time they will be honouring and remembering those who designed, built, flew and maintained the type in all its roles and locations.

Visit http://www.peoplesmosquito.org.uk for more information, to donate, and to register as a supporter.

3. The Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group has been established for the purpose of preserving and protecting a Napier Sabre powered Hawker Typhoon MkIb aircraft (RB396) and return her to full working order for the benefit of all and to demonstrate and display her to the public. In addition the Preservation Group aims to advance the education of the public in Hawker Typhoon aircraft and their crews for the benefit of British Heritage.

This will be achieved with particular emphasis on remembrance and historical knowledge and in particular the aircraft’s associated provenance and historical context, aviation and engineering heritage, and its operational and maintenance procedures and processes.

The group comprises a core of volunteers fuelled by a growing network of supporters. If you would like to participate visit their website at http://www.hawkertyphoon.com to join the Supporters’ Club, to donate, and to purchase merchandise.

4. Panshanger Community Airfield is the entity behind Project Phoenix, formed by a group of local community experts who are passionate about aviation and bringing Panshanger back to the community asset it was before the airfield’s closure. Project Phoenix has been set up by local people who always held the vision that the aerodrome was a community asset and it is time to give it back to the community so that everyone benefits.

Even though aviation was the main theme Panshanger Aerodrome was a place of unity that brought people together from all walks of life making it a real community hub and it is still missed by many.

If you have skills to offer and would like to join the team then please get in touch with the project organisers at http://www.project-phoenix.org.uk
