TAVAS Appeal

Appeal to raise money for a film about Australian airmen

The following is an appeal by Andrew Carter, founder and owner of TAVAS, who fly WW1 types in Australia:

"As you may know, I have been developing the only flying museum of WW1 aircraft in this country, to educate people about the significant part Australia played in the air war, and those personalities that then went on to define aviation in Australia after the war - during what is the only centenary of WW1 we will experience in our lifetimes.

No other individual, museum, state or federal run body or organisation is doing this. I have at my own expense. Everything I have has been put into this, as is most of my salary each year.

Due to how unique this museum is, how much we have accomplished in such a short time and how much national and international attention we have attracted, we have been approached by 2 separate documentary teams wanting to showcase what we do, what we want to achieve and filming these unique aircraft where they belong – in the air. I have chosen one, a husband and wife team with a solid track record behind them.

We need to fund the initial production costs including air to air footage with a helicopter fitted with a state of the art half million dollar camera.

They have a site set up, that I would like you to look at please and please send the link on to everyone you know – not just to aviation type people. This is a commemoration of little known Australians in WW1 and appeals to people of all ages and interests.


If I can just get a few thousand people making even a small contribution to this, we can make it happen.

By clicking on the ‘Back it’ button, people can make a fully tax deductible donation. However by clicking on one of the perks, they can get something for their donation – up to and including a flight in a WW1 aircraft.

If you know of anyone within a business or large organisation, that you think may be interested in sponsoring the museum or the documentary and be tied in with the ANZAC spirit in a unique way, please let them (and me) know.

Any assistance you are able to provide, will be greatly appreciated."
