The KF Centre for Excellence
MEET THE LEGENDS
The Hawker Tempest MK II – MW376
The biggest piston-powered fighter of its day, the Hawker Tempest MKII was built for incredible near-jet speed. While it didn’t roll off the factory floor until the close of the Second World War, it captured the wonder and fascination of generations to come. Through a ground-breaking restoration by KF Aerospace, MW 376 will be preparing to take to the skies in its RAF colours.
VR796 The De Havilland Mosquito
A British designed twin-engine, two-seat, mid-wing bomber, the de Havilland Mosquito or “Mossie” made its debut with the Royal Air Force in 1941. Featuring an unusual wooden frame, it was used extensively as an Allied night-fighter against the German Luftwaffe and quickly became one of the fastest operational aircraft in the world.
TECHNOLOGY MEETS TRADITION
With stunning curves, awe-inspiring views and incomparable attention to detail, the KF Centre for Excellence is a magnificent feat of engineering and design – the perfect vessel to deliver an immersive aviation experience.
Shaped like the fuselage and wings of an aircraft, the centre sprawls 60,000 sq. ft.
KF Centre for Excellence is estimated to reduce carbon by 1,753 metric tonnes.
Folding glass hangar doors make a 115’ clear span to allow aircraft such as the Convair CV580 and the DC-3 to enter the hangars.
