The association Ailes Anciennes Toulouse has existed for more than 40 years (created in 1980) and has always had the vocation to preserve the aeronautical heritage, whether local, national or international. Over the years, we have gathered more than 110 aircraft and many museum pieces (helicopter rotors, engines, blades, dashboards, instruments, documentation, etc.).

The destination of this collection has always been to provide the creation and supply of a large aeronautical museum in Toulouse/Blagnac. It opened its doors in 2014 and 23 of our devices are on display at the Aeroscopia Museum.

The challenges of financing
Obviously, the recovery and restoration of such machines has a cost: you have to pay for materials, paint, tools, hangar and transport when it comes to recovery. To finance all this, the association proposes the visit of the collection but this is not always enough.
A structure for collecting donations: the endowment fund
In 2010, the association benefited from an evolution of the legislation concerning patronage. The law now authorizes the creation of a new type of structure: the endowment fund. This is how our fund was born : Ailes Anciennes Toulouse Dotation

An endowment fund is a not-for-profit organization created by one or more natural or legal persons for a fixed or indeterminate period. The endowment fund carries out a work or mission of general interest or assists another non-profit organization in carrying out a work or mission of general interest by granting it funding.

The interest of the structure is obvious to donors: in fact, they can deduct from their taxes 66% of the value of the gift (60% for companies). So, when you make a donation of €100, you can deduct €66 from your taxes and it will only cost you €34!

Several projects already funded through the endowment fund
