Do you like to tell a story? As a Steward, you will work throughout the museum's three hangars and outdoor spaces to share with visitors the many aviation firsts the de Havilland companies achieved. These include record setting flights, race winning aircraft, the Wooden Wonder, the first commercial jet aircraft and many more. You will be joining a larger team of volunteers dedicated to restoring, preserving and presenting de Havilland aircraft and technology. The opportunity to learn new things is endless, after working at the Museum for 18 months, I am learning at least two new things every week.
