For the third time, the ENAIRE Foundation has presented the grants it awards annually to preserve Spain’s historical aeronautical heritage. The grants in this 2023 edition were awarded, based on the scores received by each applicant, to the following four entities and for the following amounts:

  • Fundación Infante de Orleans: 97,000 euros
  • Fundación Parc Aeronàutic de Catalunya: 54,000 euros
  • Fundación Aérea de la Comunidad Valenciana: 12,000 euros
  • Fundación Aeronáutica Antonio Quintana: 5,000 euros

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 rules for these grants state that the recipients must be non-profit entities with a 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.

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 ofContemporary Art at the Naves de Gamazo in Santander.
