CAMDEN AERODROME HISTORY HUT
|visits since 21 January 2010|
Camden Aerodrome History Hut Association INC (CAHHA) was formed in early 2008 and has taken a lease on the last of the old WWII Barrack Huts at Camden Aerodrome which is a heritage listed building.
The Association has received financial assistance from the RSL, and local council along in addition to State and Federal Grants to finance the restoration of the building and fitting it out to turn it into a small Museum. The Association is very privileged to have the Macarthur Onslow family, the original owners of the aerodrome, in the Association and giving the group keen support.
The Association intends to encourage scale modellers to contribute models of historically relevant aircraft. It is their intention to encourage youths to take an interest in aviation by developing a programme to use aviation history research, art and modelling as part of a skills acquisition programme for the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Situated on the Camden Aerodrome, they have the flying training facilities of the Air Scouts, the Air League and the NSW Wing of the Australian Air Force Cadets on site. The latter along with an Army Cadet Unit occupy what is still officially called RAAF CAMDEN.
The Association also has the support and involvement of members of the No. 22 City of Sydney Squadron Association and No. 78 Fighter Squadron which was originally formed at Camden flying Kittyhawks during WWII.
The Camden Aerodrome History Hut Association INC would welcome the donation of any relative memorabilia or tales and history of occupants of the Camden Aerodrome.
