Summary

You will help our visitors gain a greater insight into the aviation firsts and technological innovations of the de Havilland group of companies.

Detailed description

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum’s mission is to preserve and communicate the de Havilland heritage to ensure that current and future generations of all ages appreciate de Havilland’s contribution to innovative British Aviation technology.


Do you like to tell a story? As a Steward, you will work throughout the museum's three hangars and outdoor spaces to share with visitors the many aviation firsts the de Havilland companies achieved. These include record setting flights, race winning aircraft, the Wooden Wonder, the first commercial jet aircraft and many more. You will be joining a larger team of volunteers dedicated to restoring, preserving and presenting de Havilland aircraft and technology. The opportunity to learn new things is endless, after working at the Museum for 18 months, I am learning at least two new things every week.


As a Steward, we are looking for people who can commit to 20 or more hours per month. Our shifts are Tuesday through Sunday and are a maximum of 7 1/2 hours per day and a minimum of 4 hours per day. Volunteers normally work between the hours of 9:45AM and 5:15PM. Many of our volunteers enjoy coming in more often.


If you are interested in this engaging and stimulating role at the Museum, please fill-in the contact details on the GVH website and I'll send you an email link to the de Havilland volunteer application form.


We look forward to welcoming you to our friendly group of around 170+ volunteers.

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum’s volunteers are dedicated to restoring de Havilland aircraft and artefacts.
