About Aviation Heritage

The Aviation Archive project in South Gloucestershire is ably supported by the South Gloucestershire Museums and Heritage Department.

This department, facilitated by South Gloucestershire Council, provides a forum for museums and heritage centres in South Gloucestershire.

It also provides advice and funding to a variety of community led museums, and arranges special events, joint publications and training for its members, who are largely volunteers.

Some of these groups (notably the Bristol Aero Collection and Rolls Royce Heritage Trust) have become part of the Aviation Partnership, which has been of immense help in preparing the stories for this site. It is hoped these will be of interest to site visitors and provide a valuable source of research.
