The Vertical Flight Heritage Sites Program is intended to recognize and help preserve locations with the most noteworthy and significant contributions made in both the theory and practice of helicopter and other VTOL aircraft technology. Weston-super-Mare Airport in North Somerset, England was one of the 2018 Vertical Flight Heritage Sites. The Weston-super-Mare airport has been involved with helicopters since Bristol Aeroplane Company chief helicopter designer Raoul Hafner began working there in 1945. Alan Norris (center) of the Helicopter Museum at Weston-super-Mare Airport represented the historic site.
