Welcome to the oldest aviation museum in the UK dedicated to the preservation and display of de Havilland Aircraft. The de Havilland Aircraft Company played an important role in the history of aircraft development in 20th century Britain. The de Havilland company created world beating aeronautical innovations including many iconic aircraft such as the de Havilland Mosquito – “The Wooden Wonder”, the Comet – the world’s first jet airliner, the Tiger Moth – the “backbone “of the RAF’s training aircraft in WWII and the Airspeed Horsa Glider – used extensively by our airborne troops in 1944 during D-Day, Arnhem and the Rhine crossing.

We are a “working museum” where we actively restore de Havilland Aircraft so you are likely to see our volunteers at work, who are always willing to answer your questions.

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum is mostly staffed by unpaid volunteers who perform a wide range of tasks according to their skills.


Finance Director Wanted

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum is seeking to recruit a Volunteer Finance Director and Trustee to perform, direct and oversee all of the financial activities, to include the payment of all bills, reconciliation of receipts and banking and preparation of current financial reports and forecasts for future business growth.

This is a pivotal role for the Museum and the Financial Director will be instrumental in developing the Museum’s evolution. The role will provide an exciting platform for the right candidate to work with the Chairman and Trustees to aid the Museum’s growth through the production of budgets , financial reports and other accounting procedures.

We need your support in our quest to build a new hangar.

Many of our aircraft are on display outside and exposed to the weather including the last example of the Comet 1A-the world’s first Jet Airliner. To ensure their survival we need to protect these aircraft and the construction of a new large hangar is essential if we are to continue the restoration process.

The Museum has been granted planning permission to build a large Hangar that will replace a smaller building and it will enable us to protect more of our aircraft that are currently displayed outside. We have applied to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant of £1.5Million-the hangar will cost over £2.2million.

We have already used our own funds to prepare the foundations.

However we need your help to raise a further £700,000 that will enable the museum to secure funding which will enable complete the hangar.
