Supporting the RAF Museum in Centenary Year
We are proud to be the founding member of the Royal Air Force (RAF) Museum’s corporate membership programme and an RAF Centenary partner. At the heart of this partnership is the RAF Museum reopening and the national celebrations of 100 years since the RAF’s formation.
What is the RAF Museum?
The London-based museum exists to ensure that the RAF’s story endures and enriches future generations. Having just been reopened by HRH the Earl of Wessex, the museum features three new permanent exhibitions as well as a freshly landscaped heritage airfield.
The first exhibition is called The First 100 Years of the RAF. It will outline the history from the RAF’s creation in 1918 as the world’s first independent air force. The second exhibition – The Age of Uncertainty – will reflect on the RAF’s development in the latter part of the 20th century, both at war and when maintaining peace. The third exhibition, titled Now and The Future, will explore future air power innovations.
Alongside the new exhibitions, the RAF Museum also offers new ways to explore the RAF’s past, present, and future, through expanded education programmes and volunteering opportunities.
2018: The RAF Centenary
The reopening of the RAF Museum will form part of the air force’s centenary year, marking 100 years since King George V authorized the creation of a new branch of the British military.

Protecting aviation heritage
As a leading global supplier of fuel and services to the aviation industry, World Fuel Services has a long and proud history within the aviation space. The RAF Museum is a vital entity, not only for the armed forces but also for the broader aviation industry.
For us, to support the RAF Museum in exploring the past, present, and future of military flight in the UK has been an unmissable opportunity – particularly as many of our colleagues have in the past been part of the RAF.
How has World Fuel Services been involved to date?
As the founding member of the RAF Museum’s corporate membership programme and an RAF museum centenary partner, World Fuel Services has directly supported the renovation of the London attraction. Its team was proud to attend the festivities, including a sponsor’s event and corporate evening dinner event for key partners and associates.
Looking to the future
As ongoing partners to the RAF Museum, World Fuel Services will be behind the scenes supporting the vital work being done, not only to record and share the story of the RAF as an organization, but also of the people and places that have played their part in its achievements.
