Volunteering with Navy Wings
There are many ways you can volunteer with Navy Wings and really help to keep the nation’s historic naval aircraft flying.
Navy Wings relies greatly on our fantastic team of volunteers who give their time and a wide range of different skills and capabilities to help with the various activities we undertake to keep our aircraft flying. That can range from assisting at air shows and events, providing technical engineering expertise to assisting with our online merchandise sales and going that extra mile to help raise the funds we need to keep our aircraft flying.
Here are just some of the ways in which you could help:
Event Support – We hold in-house events as well as attend air shows up and down the country during the display season and are always grateful for volunteer help. Possible roles include promoting Navy Wings, helping to sell Navy Wings merchandise, assisting with the logistics and general attendee assistance.
Work with the office team – There are often jobs within the office requiring ad hoc assistance such as IT tasks, the annual stock take and mailouts. We would be delighted to hear from you if you live near RNAS Yeovilton and would like to offer a few hours of your time.
Non-specialist maintenance jobs – There are occasionally one-off tasks in our hangar that allow a dedicated volunteer to work in and around the Navy Wings historic aircraft to provide some general assistance to our engineering team.
Holding an event in your community – If you would like to hold an event in your local area to raise the profile of our historic aircraft and perhaps raise some money, then we would be very happy to support you with advice, literature and merchandise for sale.
In Service Volunteer – If you are currently serving in the Royal Navy and would like to be an ambassador for us, promoting our heritage aircraft and the legacy of the men who flew them, then do get in touch.
Specialist Engineers – We have the privilege to work with specialist volunteer engineers who provide us with their expert knowledge on specific engineering requirements, which is invaluable, particularly following the recent transfer of the Royal Navy Historic aircraft into our ownership.
