Stop press !

Following a extraordinary general meeting.
A decision has been made for The Buccaneer Aviation Group's new home.

Although very excited, we have a few final points to clarify before we announce the location. But we can assure you our jets will continue to be able to move under their own power !

We will be launching a crowd fund very soon with some excellent rewards to enable us to fund the costs of moving the jets.

Watch this space !

The Buccaneer Aviation Group is very pleased to announce that our new home will be

Cotswold Airport Kemble


As many of you will know, Kemble has been home to some of the Buccaneers before, following retirement from the Royal Air Force. And we look forward to making some more Rolls Royce Spey noise there for you all to hear !

Following consultation with Cox automotive at Bruntingthorpe a timeline is in place that will see us vacated and in residence at Kemble before September 30th.

In the next few hours and days you will see that we have been busy preparing for this and will be launching a crowdfunding scheme with some exciting rewards for our supporters to help us achieve our goal and allow the aircraft to continue to move under their power.

Transport quotes are already being received and we really do need your help !

The Buccaneer Aviation Group will be able to continue to hold taxi days and other events at Kemble to fund our continuing existence and we have also agreed to provide active care for the Canberra PR9S, Hunter T7 and Gnat already in residence.

We are extremely pleased to have found a new home where we can continue to keep the history alive, and thank you in advance for any help given.

We will of course keep you updated as the move progresses and hope to see you all at Cotswold airport

Further to our previous post about our new home at Kemble, please see below for the link to our crowdfunding page. As you can see it is not a small amount of money we require but we believe together we can make this happen.

Look forward to seeing you all at Kemble very soon!

Please share far and wide!
