The aim of the partnership is to strengthen cooperation between MASHC and the Royal Air Force Museum in order to enhance each organisation's programmes and provide an opportunity for staff and collections development.
 
Both Museums value their shared interests and goals and will continue to build on the relationship already established, developing this partnership in order to achieve the best outcomes for visitors. MASHC and the Royal Air Force Museum will actively seek opportunities to share collections where practicable and will consider Special Partnership Loan Terms where possible.
 
Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre Chairman Ron Morris said: This is a great step forward for MASHC to be aligned in a partnership with the Royal Air Force Museum. The opportunity to be able to share collections and gain experience from this partnership will greatly enhance the quality of experience visitors to our museum will get. The impact of Montrose Air Station in the development of the RFC and RAF and the place it holds in aviation history is significant and relationships like this with the Royal Air Force Museum only strengthens our ability to draw visitors to Montrose to learn about the history and legacy of the RAF in Scotland.          

RAF Museum CEO Maggie Appleton says: We are delighted to be strengthening our ties with Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre. At the RAF Museum it is our duty to share the RAF’s stories with the world through our archives, collections and exhibits. Further to that, we also see it as our responsibility to work with other organisations to both learn from them and share our own experience of running a Museum and engaging with audiences. We look forward to this deepening of our relationship with our friends at MASHC.
