Atlantic Air Adventures Shannon reaches out for Funding

The dedicated team at Atlantic Air Adventures has worked hard to build a small, but eclectic aviation museum.  Sadly, they have said that it is not sustainable. Unless Shannon Aviation Museum can develop, increase facility standards, maintain and restore the exhibits and attract more visitors as a tourist attraction in its own right, its future is in doubt. They have sought to raise the funds to progress with their banks, but unfortunately they are fully committed with ongoing repayments for the aircraft exhibits purchased in 2012 and 2013.

So they are reaching out to the aviation community for help. They have welcomed over 30,000 people to date to the museum, and have nearly 5,000 Facebook likes, 700 Linkedin contacts, 400 Twitter followers and over 8,500 email addresses on their contact list covering ten years. Help make Shannon Aviation Museum sustainable for the future. If you like what they do, click on the link, and be part of their epic story! See details of their plans below, if you want to donate, please visit the ifundraise website by clicking here.
