BAPC Membership

This month the Stirling Aircraft Project visited the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby. This was because the BAPC (British Aviation Preservation Council) was holding a meeting there. The BAPC is an umbrella organisation for the UK Aviation Preservation scene including all the major Museums as well as small organisations.

We gave a presentation on what the Project was doing and hoping to do. This was well received and we were voted in as a member of the BAPC. Our Stirling Flight deck will be given a BAPC number as an unknown airframe which will allow it to be given official status. As well as this, we made some useful contacts from other member organisations who may be able to help us in the future. We also collected the 5 oxygen bottles donated to us.
