Who we Are

The ShuttlQueen's Award for Voluntary Serviceeworth Veteran Aeroplane Society is a Charity (no. 800095) made up of thousands of members in many countries, of all ages and from all walks of life. We support the Shuttleworth Collection, a collection of vintage aeroplanes and vehicles located on the edge of Old Warden village in rural Bedfordshire, England.

The SVAS are involved in all aspects of running the Collection from cleaning gutters to sitting on the management board.

The SVAS raises and donates to the Collection around £100,000 a year, which has enabled the acquisition of the Lysander, Chipmunk, Provost, Super Cub, Hillman Minx and the annual purchase of all aircraft spares.

In 2014 we were awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service for “Educating the public in the science, practice and history of aviation and motoring by supporting the charitable work of the Shuttleworth Collection”.
