The Museum’s collections span across the entire history of aviation. From Sir George Cayley’s Glider and Wright Flyer, all the way to supersonic jets.
Our collections are far more than simply aircraft exhibits. We also house a vast collection of archive material, documentation and important information that tells the stories of the people who were alive in these periods. From early 2021 onwards, we aim to digitise significant areas of our archive collections to help visitors and people online across the globe with the following objectives:
To honour the memories of those who fought in the air in wartime and who often did noty live to see the final peace.
To educate visitors both here at the museum and online to learn more about the history of aviation, of the human contributions and sacrifices
To inspire younger generations to have a desire to learn more and perhaps pursue a career in aviation, technology or diplomacy.
