The Warbird Coffee Company has a clear objective. That is, to give back to those who work so hard preserving our aviation heritage from The Second World War. These aircraft are unique reminders of a time when young men and women would place themselves at the mercy of the enemy and all too often made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom.
The Warbird Coffee Company acknowledges the countless hours that go into maintaining the aircraft in an airworthy condition and we do this through partnerships with the owners and operators. Every time a partnered product is purchased from The Warbird Coffee Company, you will be directly contributing to that aircrafts upkeep and running costs, or helping fund the restoration of it. In doing so it is hoped we can all continue to enjoy these magnificent Warbirds for generations to come.
The aircraft we're striving to support
THE HAWKER TYPHOON PRESERVATION GROUP
The Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group (HTPG) are in the process of restoring to flight an iconic British Warbird. Hawker Typhoon Mk1b. RB396, when restored will be the only airworthy example of it’s type in the world and will be a fitting tribute to the aircrew that flew this incredible aircraft. To help HTPG reach their required goal of £5 million to fund the restoration, The Warbird Coffee Company have created ‘Tiffy Tea’.
T-6 HARVARD LTD
T6 Harvard Ltd own and operate AJ841, a T6 Harvard with the distinctive and very popular ‘Wacky Wabbit’ nose art. T6 Harvard Aviation offer Warbird flights as well as a range of aircrew training packages for conversion on to tail draggers. ‘Wacky Wabbit Coffee’ has been created to support AJ841 so that it can continue to act as a vital part of the Warbird community.

THE PEOPLES MOSQUITO
Our “Intruder” coffee is a collaboration with our friends at “The Peoples Mosquito”, a team dedicated to getting a “wooden wonder” back into UK Skies. Based around the remains of RL249, a Mosquito NF.36, this unique project has a tough task ahead, in building the aircrafts famous timber airframe entirely from scratch using original methods.
In creating our collaboration with the TPM team, we here at Warbird Coffee are proud to be helping another Mosquito to return to where it belongs.
The restoration of the C-47A Skytrain, known as Night Fright, is a unique and exciting project to bring back to flight an aircraft with a distinctive history. As part of the 436th Troop Carrier Group flying from RAF Membury in England, the aircraft was involved in dropping Paratroopers or towing Gliders in the final four major Airborne Operations of WWII.
Perhaps most uniquely, this aircraft will be based at its former wartime airfield of Membury, perhaps the only flightworthy warbird on the planet to do so.
