The South African Airways Museum Society is a non-profit volunteer organisation and was founded in 1986 by individuals within South African Airways and interested outside parties with the aim of preserving the history of South African Airways as well as that of general civil aviation in South Africa. This was sparked off by the purchase by South African Airways of the famous Junkers Ju 52/3m aircraft. Members of the South African Airways Museum Society were instrumental in restoring that aircraft, and have ever since been proactive in preserving the colourful history of South African Airways.

The Museum Society is based at the Transvaal Aviation Club at Rand Airport in Germiston. Historic items such as photographs, aircraft instruments, timetables and fascinating artefacts are on display in the society's display hall.

Over the years, the Museum has amassed a wonderful collection of aviation related books, technical manuals, historical documents, photographs, magazines and historic film and video footage which are now housed in our library. The material in the library is available for research purposes.

The static display aircraft are used to their fullest extent for aviation awareness programmes as well as for fund raising for the society. The aircraft are available for small corporate related functions such as board meetings and conferences, product launches, award ceremonies, even weddings. The aircraft park boasts two Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet aircraft as well as other older aircraft from a bygone era which will be of interest to young and old alike.

The museum facility is open to the public, and the society regularly participates in open days to encourage particularly the younger generation of South Africans to take an interest in aviation as a potential career.
