Hangar, Historical Archive & Event volunteers
Volunteering at the Ulster Aviation Society's heritage collection of aircraft and artefacts can be a very rewarding way to enhance an interest in aviation, as well as an opportunity to develop skills or knowledge, and meet people with similar interests.
With a wide range of backgrounds and capabilities — from BOTH Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland — volunteers can be involved in anything from aircraft restoration and maintenance, creating displays, conducting guided tours helping with office administration, and a host of other things. Our volunteer engine is made up from many different cogs! We also have a new 2021 team involved in cataloguing our extensive currently undocumented huge UAS Archive of photos, documents & assets.
If you think you have something to offer in the many types of work undertaken in the hangar and on the collection, or help at the Outdoor Events (post-Lockdown in 2022) we attend, then why not come along and help out as a UAS Volunteer.
You'll be part of an organisation that was recognised in 2018 with the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service — the MBE and highest honour for UK charities.
How do I volunteer?
New or existing UAS members are always welcome to visit the hangar any Saturday (outside of Covid Lockdowns) from 12noon – 5pm (first Saturday of the month is especially for new volunteers). Other days by arrangement.
