Bader Braves Young Aviators Day Schedule 2018

The Douglas Bader Foundation is delighted to be offering 10 Bader Braves Young Aviators Days at locations across the UK  this year.

While we welcome donations from families towards costs, these days are completely free for our Braves and will include lunch. This may be a packed lunch provided by the DBF; refreshments provided by some participating airfields or even occasionally a fight-for-the-last-sausage barbecue depending on the venue! 

You will see from the Programme that all our old favourite venues are there and we are, as always, extremely grateful to all the Flying Clubs and Airfields involved for welcoming us back again. Without their support and the generosity of their pilots and helpers, these wonderful and hugely popular days simply wouldn’t be possible and we thank them all.
