First Corporate Sponsor & Centenary Project press release
Press Release For immediate release
The Spitfire Society announces first corporate sponsor & centenary project for the first flight of the Spitfire - 2036
The Spitfire Society is proud to announce our first corporate sponsor in Spitfire Doors. A Spitfire Door is the perfect fusion of security, substance and style. Each door and frame is meticulously engineered by combining substantial aluminium sections with hi-tech options like automatic locking. Spitfire Doors are widely specified in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, where consumers demand premium technically advanced products, with guaranteed durability. Their annual financial contributions to the Society will allow us to pursue an ambitious programme to mark the first flight of the Spitfire in 2036 and our wider charitable objectives.
The Society is intending to mark the centenary anniversary of the first flight of the Spitfire in 2036, the first stage will involve the creation of a mobile flight simulator of K5054 which will allow the public to experience the world’s most iconic aircraft. The next step will involve the construction of a Supermarine Spitfire Mk26b modified to resemble the Spitfire prototype, which will allow donors to be involved in construction and the public to fly in this dual control aircraft. The ultimate objective will be to build a full scale flying version of the Spitfire K5054 in order to recreate the first flight from Southampton Airport on 5 March 2036. This will be entirely dependent on raising funds above the core funds of the Society.
The Spitfire Society is now seeking the public’s assistance in achieving these objectives under our existing fundraising Spitfire Fund programme. These aims will also integrate with our Society Award scheme to encourage young aeronautical engineers, restoration of ‘Aksel’ Spitfire replica, Battle of Britain anniversary and support of the NHS.
The Society will be collecting funds and holding events across the country. All those who donate will receive a free lapel supporters badge in the spirit of the original campaign and that every good turn requires another. Any contribution large or small will be gratefully received and will help to preserve the legacy of not just an aircraft but all those connected with its legendary achievements.
