• The recipients of this aid must be non-profit entities with tax residence in Spain and a collection of at least 4 historic aircraft

• These grants, which are being offered for the third year, will be awarded to four entities as follows: 97,000 euros for the applicant with the highest score; 54,000, 12,000 and 5,000 euros for others

The ENAIRE Foundation presents its third annual call for grants to preserve Spain’s historical aeronautical heritage.

The recipients of this aid must be non-profit entities with tax residence in Spain that have a collection of at least four life-size historic aircraft.

The aircraft can be in use, on the ground, undergoing repairs or overhauls, or static aircraft on display. They must also be on display to the public for outreach or information purposes, both in person and through a website, as set out in the rules published in the Official State Gazette (BOE).

Through these nationwide grants, the ENAIRE Foundation seeks to support the preservation of Spain’s aeronautical heritage and help disseminate aeronautical culture by assisting in the conservation of historic, life-size aircraft, whether operational or not, for the public’s enjoyment and knowledge.

The total amount of this third package is 168,000 euros distributed in four grants: the first, worth 97,000 euros, for the recipient with the highest score; and the remaining three, worth 50,000, 10,000 and 5,000 euros, for the second-, third- and fourth-place recipients, respectively.

For more than 25 years, the ENAIRE Foundation has focused much of its efforts on keeping Spain’s historical aeronautical heritage alive, by collaborating with various entities in keeping with its founding objectives.
Applications must be submitted electronically by 8 April via the platform in the ENAIRE Foundation website.

The work of the ENAIRE Foundation

The ENAIRE Foundation is a cultural organisation linked to ENAIRE. Its objectives include the fostering of aeronautical culture and the preservation, expansion and spreading of ENAIRE’s artistic heritage. This heritage consists of a notable collection of Spanish and Ibero-American art, spanning from the second half of the twentieth century to the present day, and encompassing more than a thousand works of all types.

In addition, since last July, the ENAIRE Foundation has had a permanent venue for the ENAIRE Collection of Contemporary Art at the Naves de Gamazo in Santander.
