As the aircraft has now been donated to the group the target for the first phase has been reduced to £50,000 and the deadline has been moved out to 95 days  ;D which will pay for the aircraft parking fee for a year (around £4,000) and start to pay for things like the fabric covering of the flying controls (around £17,000), manpower for the structural repairs (about £70,000) and the cost of the prop overhaul (about £16,000).

The intention will be to keep a rolling fund raising campaign going on just giving along with conventional fund raising such as mail shots, magazine articles and airshow stands selling merchandise.

There will be a conventional bank account set up for those that do not want to give via just giving or text so you will be able to set up a standing order to donate monthly (that will be another one for me to donate to!)

Large numbers of people donating small amounts is the way to go with this.

With the donations over the last few days (thank you all very much) we are now up to 1% of the total...

How about diverting the residual Club funds to either this project or the "Just Jane" project ? far more credible than further donations to the VTTS Trust money pit !!

that is a nice idea but I very much doubt it could be done legally. I believe part of the agreement to wind up the club and integrate was that the funds would be handed over to the Trust. I think it would be a case of forming a new supporters group for the Skymaster and starting from scratch albeit with a bit of accrued experience in fundraising.

Malcolm and I have had a really good meeting yesterday with Allan Vogel, and Henry Hyde (owner) and his wife. We have talked about shows and merchandise and how to move the fundraising forward. We have discussed a name for the group and all sorts of things. However what we need now us as much support as possible and that includes money. You know what we've always asked for is small amounts from lots of people so please if you can, make a donation however small (or large!!) And we can get this aircraft back in the air. The cost is nowhere near that needed for more complex aircraft. The plans are so exciting and include taking her around the world to all the places she used to go to. But she will live here!
Please help this fledgling project. Share the love guys  :-)

Meanwhile please also keep helping 558. She will need our support to carry her into the next phase but there are some really good and exciting projects out there too so we need to spread it about a bit too  ;) :)

Crikey I hope not, I work at North Harbour in Pompey and continuously hear Wokkas and Merlins buzzing around...copter that is, not the RR V12!
