The Helicopter Museum
About The The Helicopter Museum
In August 2011 The Helicopter Museum completed a £387,000 project, under a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) programme, to upgrade its conservation and education facilities while introducing new skills training. The four year programme included the thermal insulation of the main hangar, construction and fitting out of a humidity-controlled library and archive centre, a film/lecture theatre, the introduction of a new interactive area and the provision of additional film screen displays. In September the museum received a unusual donation by UK house builder, Barratt Developments PLC, which in the past featured helicopters in its television advertising to sell new homes nationwide. The first UK house builder to use TV advertising, Barratt Homes commissioned the commercials in the 1970s, initially using a Bell JetRanger and later an Agusta A109A. The company also used a helicopter sculpture at some of their development sites in the South West of England and it is this sculpture, essentially a full-size skeletal JetRanger, which has been kindly donated to The Museum following completion of a housing development in the village of Paulton, in Somerset. *Image is not necessarily one of the museum.
