Welcome

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.


De Havilland Aircraft Museum Cockpit Experience Event

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum will be launch our first  Cockpit Experience Events during the summer.
Mike Garrick-a retired  US Navy Commander with many years’ experience of piloting multi-engine aircraft will be hosting the first event on Saturday 10th June 2017 from 11am-1pm.

It’s your chance to get a personal insight into the development of de Havilland aircraft cockpits from the 1930’s Puss Moth to the 1960’s Trident Airliner.
Cost is the usual Museum admission charge plus a £25 New Hangar donation.
Please mail our AeroShop Manager to reserve your place –aeroshop@dehavillandmuseum.co.uk

The event is limited to  3 visitors at each event.


New Hangar CrowdFunder Campaign

We’ve just started a CrowdFunder Campaign for our New Hangar project:

http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/new-hangar-for-the-de-havilland-aircraft-museum

Please support us with a donation and we would be grateful if you could pass this mail onto friends/family/workmates/suppliers as that’s how Crowdfunding works.


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.
