The Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS)

LHS is proud to be associated with the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS). HARS arranges annual fly-pasts of its historical aircraft for the Stanwell Park Schools Kites Day and the Stanwell Park Festival of Flight.

LHS mounted a display of Hargrave models at ‘Wings Over Illawarra’ at HARS, Albion Park, in 2011.

HARS and LHS are working together to develop more working Hargrave models, including a replica of the original Radial Rotary Engine of 1889.
