Flyers take flight with Aerospace Bristol

Bristol Flyers is delighted to announce a new partnership with Aerospace Bristol for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.

Based in Filton, the Aerospace Bristol museum houses a varied collection of exhibits - from World War One biplanes to more modern aircraft, helicopters, engines, missiles, and even a space rocket. There are interactive exhibits for all ages to enjoy and the star attraction is Concorde Alpha Foxtrot, the last Concorde to be built and the last to fly.

Situated on the historic Filton Airfield, the exhibition is housed in a Grade II listed WWI hangar and the purpose-built Concorde Hangar, where Concorde is stunningly displayed, complete with an incredible audio-visual show projected on to the side of the supersonic jet.

As a supporting partner, Aerospace Bristol will become the club’s official ‘take-off’ partner and will be working with the Flyers to give fans the chance to visit the city’s newest family attraction, based a short distance away from the SGS College Arena.

Commenting on the new partnership, Bristol Flyers Commercial Manager Steve Devereux said: "Aerospace Bristol, like Bristol Flyers, celebrates Bristol’s aviation heritage and the museum is a great addition to the city. We are really pleased to be partnering with another Bristol-based family-friendly attraction’.

Adam Jones, Marketing Manager for Aerospace Bristol added: "Aerospace Bristol is delighted to partner with Bristol Flyers. Bristolians are rightly very proud of our city's rich aviation heritage and we hope that this partnership will encourage people to experience both kinds of Bristol Flyer: the Bristol aircraft on show at Aerospace Bristol and our top-flight basketball team."
