About Us

During March 2018 Provost Preservation was formed with the aim of preserving an important part of British aviation history. We’ve been lucky enough to acquire three examples of the aircraft and the dream is to have at least two of them grace the skies once again. The Percival P.56 Provost is a British basic trainer that was developed for the Royal Air Force in the 1950s as a replacement for the Percival Prentice. It was a low-wing monoplane with a fixed, tailwheelundercarriage and like the Prentice had a side-by-side seating arrangement. Eventually the famous Jet Provost was developed from the Percival Provost, and became a pivotal aircraft for the Royal Air Force and numerous airforces alike.
With the experience and knowledge from a number of people and companies in the aviation industry, Provost Preservation hopes to keep these aircraft and their spirit alive for future generations to enjoy and learn from.
Alan house has been an essential piece of this journey and we are forever grateful to him and his team for all their help and ongoing support with the Provost.
Currently Percival Provost T.1 XF597 (G-BKFW) is undergoing a full restoration back to airworthiness with Vintage Fabrics at Audley End. We hope that In the future XF836 (G-AWRY) will be given the same professional treatment and return to the skies where she belongs.
Through this website you can follow the progress of the restorations, keep up to date with upcoming events,  news, and what’s going on in the workshops. There are many ways of getting involved with Provost Preservation such as, joining our supporters club, browsing our shop or simply donating to help keep our aircraft flying.
A big thank you to all who have been involved in making this dream a reality and we are looking forward to the future.
