We are deeply grateful to all our alumni and friends for their support for the National Flying Laboratory Centre (NFLC).

All gifts of every size make a huge difference! By supporting this campaign, you will be helping to ensure that the NFLC remains as a unique resource for aerospace teaching and research in the years ahead.

All supporters will be recognised in our annual list of donors unless you have indicated that you wish to remain anonymous. We also look forward to keeping you informed of our progress through regular updates and to welcoming you back to campus for a range of events.

Join the 340 Club

The 340 Club recognises those supporters who are able to commit a minimum of £340 per year for a three year period. Your gift may be given as a one-off contribution of £1,020, an annual contribution of £340, or if you would prefer to make your gift through regular instalments, this works out at £28 per month.

Why join the 340 Club?

Quite simply, impact! A gift at this level will make an important contribution towards the necessary modifications to the Saab 340B aircraft and will also support the ongoing maintenance and surrounding infrastructure related to the NFLC.


As a member of the 340 Club you will be part of a special group of alumni and friends who are committed to supporting the NFLC on an on-going basis. To say thank you, and to recognise your support, you will receive an exclusive range of benefits including:

  • Invitations to special donor recognition events.
  • Opportunities to meet world-leading Cranfield faculty experts.
  • Visiting Cranfield campus? We can arrange a private tour.
  • Opportunities to engage with the University on a more strategic level.
  • Your name will appear alongside other 340 Club supporters on our donor board within the NFLC, if you wish.
