A central part of the history of modern hang gliding is made up of the achievements of pilots who flew their machines ever higher and further. By keeping their gliders actively flying and re-stageing notable events the museum hopes to honour both the pioneers and later heroes. Hang gliders from our museum have already been used for filming and we are planning many more for projects for the future, to view either PAST MUSEUM PROJECTS or FUTURE MUSEUM PROJECTS click on above.
The Museum has grown from a base formed by Jason Board's collection of hang gliders. From experience it has been learned that the hang glider does not lend itself readily to static exhibition. Only when the wind fills the sail and during flight does it 'live'. A combination of the fact that hang gliders can be stored in a relatively small space and that the Internet web site can give universal access make it possible to organise the collection in an efficient way.
