Make a donation to help protect the heritage of Boeing 747-438

The people from the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) are seeking public donations for the restoration of Boeing 747-438, OJA, “The City of Canberra”. Described as being a much-loved aircraft, it’s a piece of aviation history that was maintained and operated by Qantas, and is currently on display at the HARS museum.

The team at HARS are encouraging donations in order to maintain and preserve its appearance. The donations will go towards the repainting and sheltering of the aircraft in order to protect its heritage.

HARS is made up of volunteer aviation professionals and enthusiasts who have premises at Shellharbour Regional Airport (YSHL), Albion Park. The volunteers at HARS are mostly made up of active and retired aircraft engineers with a dedication and love of aircraft and its rich history.

The Australian and International Pilots Association (AIPA) 2023 Annual Dinner

We proudly sponsored the AIPA’s Annual Dinner for 2023, which was held on Friday 24th of March. It’s an annual event that celebrates the careers of recently retired colleagues in the aviation industry. It was also an opportunity to farewell those who didn’t have the opportunity in the previous years due to the pandemic.

For the last 42 years AIPA has represented the interests of pilots and currently represents over 2,500 pilots.

Qudos Bank had the honour of celebrating and hearing the stories of 28 pilots’ extraordinary careers after retiring in 2022. The event was a memorable occasion, dedicated to celebrating long-standing service in aviation.

Supporting AIPA is one of the ways Qudos Bank honours our history with Qantas.
