Australian Aerospace is a proud and active member of the communities it works in. The company works closely a number of charities and community groups with a focus on aviation and support for those in need.
Day of Difference has delivered over $2.5 million worth of life- saving equipment, services and research to Australian hospitals. The organisation has also employed a range of therapists to support children in their recovery journey offering alternative coping strategies for upcoming procedures as well as increasing mobility and managing trauma.
Day of Difference is embarking upon a groundbreaking new program; to identify and then address the challenges faced by these families on their journey from the moment their child is critically injured to understanding and accepting the new and very different life they will be required to live when they return home with their child.
Australian Aerospace has supported Day of Difference since 2008.
Australian Aerospace is proud to be the naming rights sponsor of the Defence Charity Ball, in support of Legacy.
The Defence Charity Ball raises funds to support Legacy in their charity work providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the incapacitation or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service.
The charity cares for 100,000 widows and 1,900 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.
Australian Aerospace continues its long-standing support of the Caribou aircraft in Australia. The company provided Caribou maintenance from 1964 to the fleet's retirement with the RAAF in 2009. HARS maintains two Caribous in pristine flying display and Australian Aerospace is pleased to continue its relationship with the Grande Dame of the Sky.
The Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) is a not for profit organisation, specialising in the restoration, preservation, maintenance, operation and display of heritage aircraft. Since 1979 they have amassed a collection of flying aircraft which is the envy of the world. Ranging from the iconic Lockheed Constellation airliner now through to the Caribous, the fleet will be joined shortly by an F-111 bomber for static display.
Based at the Illawarra Regional Airport, near Wollongong NSW, the collection is open throughout the year and volunteers are always on hand to show the museum to the public.
