Sky Watch operates entirely on charitable donations and any funds raised will be used towards partially providing the fuel necessary to fly our aircraft, vital equipment (including cameras, navigation and safety equipment) and towards the purchase of necessary insurance relating to CAP activities. As an average guide, £100 will cover between 2 and 3 hours of searching by one of our aircraft - which compares favourably with several thousand pounds an hour required by a search helicopter (As our only costs are fuel some of our smaller light aircraft can operate for an hour on the cost of a commercial helicopter for a minute!).
Donations can be made as either a single event or by regular standing order. In either case please complete our general contact form (click here) giving us your details and our General Secretary will contact you to take the process forward.
