Friends of Duxford have raised an amazing £1 million since their foundation in 1999

Through fundraising events, membership drives and tireless hours of voluntary time, commitment and passion, Friends of Duxford have significantly contributed to some of IWM Duxford’s most important exhibitions. From AirSpace to the display of the Wright Flyer fabric, these projects have been made possible by the member and we look forward to their continued support for the next major project, Historic Duxford and the new target of £2 million.

Friends of Duxford is a membership category of the Duxford Aviation Society, registered charity no 285809.
