Preserving and flying the

nation’s historic naval aircraft

We are the Fly Navy Heritage Trust

What do we do exactly?

The Fly Navy Heritage Trust is the charity behind Navy Wings, working to preserve Britain’s great naval aviation heritage. It relies on public donations to support its work in maintaining, presenting and flying an unrivalled collection of historic naval aircraft.

The Charity’s objectives are:

To EDUCATE members of the public in the history, traditions and exploits of the Fleet Air Arm and the history of Royal Navy aviation generally.

To INSPIRE by promoting and displaying historic aircraft, the efficiency and effectiveness of aviation in the Royal Navy.

To REMEMBER by providing a living memorial and tribute to the men and women who have flown, maintained or contributed in any way to the operation of aircraft in the Fleet.

Raising Funds To Keep Our Historic Aircraft Flying

How are we going to achieve this?

By raising money so that we can maintain and fly our collection of historic aircraft to ensure that as many people as possible experience the unforgettable sight and sound of these nationally important aircraft in the air.

We need to raise a substantial amount of money each year so that we can repair old parts, develop new ones, maintain and preserve our aircraft to the highest standards and make sure that they are fully ready to take part in events across the country.

Our many activities (events, aircraft experiences, lectures, and flying displays) aim to inspire and educate the public about the heroism, innovation and inspiring achievements of the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy. We hope that you will support the continued flying of these glorious old aircraft.
