How would you like to honour the past, write a piece of the future and gift the next generation of aviation leaders following in your contrails?

Imagine the feeling, the soaring sense of pride, of seeing the National Flying Laboratory Centre’s (NFLC’s) Flying Classroom flying at Farnborough and thinking “I sponsor a part on that aircraft.”

Sponsoring a part is much more than a donation towards the NFLC Flying Classroom campaign. It’s a fantastic way to help students achieve their dream of becoming an aerospace engineer or leader of the future.

Would you like to join us by sponsoring a part on the new Saab 340B and give the next generation of high flyers the gift of the wide open skies?

Sponsoring a part is a great way of being part of the NFLC, forever!

To sponsor a part simply browse through the opportunities listed below, ranging from £25 up to £1,500.

Once you’ve made your decision click through to our online gift form and select the part you want to sponsor from the dropdown list.

You can also sponsor a part by post by completing the section on the donation form.

If you have any questions, or would like further information about the NFLC campaign, please email giving@cranfield.ac.uk.

Thank you for your support!
