The Manx Aviation Preservation Society (MAPS) was formed in 1994 and became a registered charity in 2001. Its main objective is the operation of the Manx Aviation and Military Museum.
Many of the Society's members volunteer their time to help with the operation of the museum, from staffing the reception and shop area to carrying out maintenance and development.
The Society's interests extend beyond civil and military aviation to include all the military history of the Island and its people in the twentieth and 21st centuries.
