Interested in Being a Volunteer?
The Helicopter Museum is supported by the many volunteers spread across the Museum's different areas from Aircraft Conservation, General site maintenance, working in the shop or at our events throughout the year.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, giving their time to help and are essential to the work that we do.

Volunteering will help you to develop new skills and interests plus meet friendly like-minded people.

Our volunteer roles open up opportunities for you to contribute skills, time and enthusiasm to create positive experiences for our visitors.

We are always looking for new volunteers, whether you are able to volunteer often or occasionally, we would love for you to be involved, get in touch.

Aircraft Conservation

Conservation work on the aircraft is carried out entirely by volunteers in their spare time. The work is rewarding and the museum undertakes to provide small and large projects to fit in with the needs of the volunteers.

You do not have to have any background in engineering or aircraft manufacture as all work will be supervised by other team members.

Many of our restoration volunteers have gone on to have careers in helicopter aviation as pilots, instructors and engineers.

How can You help ?

The current major long term project on going in the conservation area is the American built Boeing Vertol H21.
