About us - The history of the B.F.H.
Although not founded till 1994, the origins of our club go back to the year 1981. At that time two of our foundation members photographed at Schleissheim Airfield in detail the historic maintenance hangar (Flugwerft Schleissheim) dating from 1918 and the old terminal (Flugplatzwache) dating from 1912. In the years to follow, the efforts to preserve these buildings were the centre of the activities. With the opening of the museum Flugwerft Schleissheim, a department of the Deutsches Museum in September 1992, these activities came to an end.
On this background, in April 1994, it was due time to leave old habits and founding the Bayerische Flugzeug Historiker e.V. (Bavarian Aviation Historians) as an organizational platform that on one hand brings forward the development of the museum airfield and on the other hand documentates the whole Bavarian aviation history in an appropriate way, for further generations.

Project based working
Our work is very much based on projects, that means in our club exist several workgroups who mainly work on selected themes of Bavarian aviation history.
Make aviation history accessible for public
Aviation history shall not stay expert knowledge for insiders. It shall become more and more accessible for the interested public. Therefore we invite regularly to public to our own events and participe on various events with our information booth, e.g. in the museum Flugwerft Schleissheim, on air shows and model exhibitions. 
The exact dates can be found in our date book for events and the announcements of the daily press.
