Rushmoor Borough Council
We are indebted to the consistent and enthusiastic support provided by our local authority Rushmoor Borough Council to Farnborough Air Sciences Trust, the museum and its projects. In recognition of the important part S F Cody and his achievements played in the history of Aldershot, Farnborough and the North Camp area we wish to thank RBC formally for a much appreciated grant towards the construction of the Cody Flyer replica.
We are pleased to announce our first major sponsor from the aerospace sector. Lockheed Martin is one of the worlds largest and most innovative aerospace companies with over “1,000 facilities in 500 cities and 46 states throughout the US” and “Internationally, business locations in 75 nations and territories”. We are particularly pleased that a US based company has chosen to support the Cody Flyer Project recognising the special relationship that exists between the US and UK aviation industries to this day. Their support further cements this relationship and recognises the considerable achievement of their countryman Samuel F Cody, 100 years ago.
