Scouts Takeover Day 2019
This June the Museum team and the Royal Air Force will deliver a great day’s activities to young Scouts from the region to attain a special RAF Air Researcher Activity Badge. The Museum is proud to be selected by the RAF as their preferred aviation venue in the North of England.
During the day, Scouts will get the opportunity to earn this special badge after completing a series of fun aviation and aircraft-related activities.
Across the grounds of the Museum, our guiding team together with RAF representatives will deliver talks and activities linked to particular aircraft as well as tours of the Museum’s aircraft collection.
The Museum’s learning team has planned each activity session for the scouts which will take place within our spacious memorial aircraft Hangar under the watchful eye of our Halifax bomber Friday the 13th.
Following last August’s very successful first Scouts Takeover Day, Sqn Ldr Paul Harrap of The Royal Air Force commented, “We are absolutely delighted to be working in partnership with the Yorkshire Air Museum and the Scouts. This event was a huge success and saw 130 scouts all achieve their RAF 100 Sponsored Air Researcher Badge, this a fantastic achievement in one day. The venue was outstanding and a huge thank you to all the staff and volunteers who supported the event. We are very excited to be working with the museum in the near future.”
A total of 200 places for scouts preferably based in Northern England are available for this year’s event.
