BOOK A TOUR

Book Your Tour at the UAS

Please book your tour in advance through E-mail. Walk-ins are not permitted.

Volunteer Tour Guides generously offer their time to show you around and tell you stories about the aircraft collection. To guarantee a Guide for your visit, please book your tour slot in advance via E-mail.

Tours are ideal for families or small groups up to 10 people. For larger groups of 11 to 40 people, please contact us for special arrangements.

Hangar Tours are FREE OF CHARGE, yes FREE, however the UAS relies on Donations to support our 100% Volunteer-run charity.

We're now No.1 for ‘Top Attraction in Lisburn’ and No.4 Museum in NI on TRIP ADVISOR. 

SAFETY WARNING — BEFORE BOOKING

 

If you have young children UNDER 8yo they *MUST* be closely supervised by you at all times, for their own safety and others! It is not a playground!
Our hangars and exhibits are
not suitable at all for very young children.

 

We reserve the Right to ask anyone to Leave.

HOW TO BOOK A TOUR

Tours are available every day at 11am and 2pm, lasting around 2 hours.

 

Extra tour slots are offered on Saturdays.

Please do NOT just arrive out of the blue. You will be turned away! You MUST book first please as the hangars are not always open.

 

To book your tour, E-mail us with your preferred date(s), number of visitors coming, and Mobile / Cell number.

WHAT HAPPENS THEN?

Once you have e-mailed your Booking Request, our Visit Co-Ordinators, Ricci Coulter or David Reilly will confirm your tour or suggest alternative dates if your first choice is unavailable.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

A family visit (10 people max.) is FREE OF CHARGE, yes FREE, however the UAS survives on both donations and our volunteers' own time and energy.

Larger Group Visits (11-40+) are £POA.

 

We hope our passion for aviation inspires you. After your Tour, consider making a donation to show your appreciation.

DO YOU ACCEPT CREDIT OR DEBIT CARDS?

We accept all major credit and debit cards, including Contactless payments, ApplePay, GooglePay, and AMEX

I WANT TO BRING A LARGER GROUP TO THE HANGARS

With advanced pre-booking we are again, happy to accept bookings from larger groups (of 11 and not to exceed 40 people maximum) including schools, which has a booking fee — £POA.

You will need to apply for this via our interactive PDF Group Booking Form.

 

If you have further questions before booking, you can also E-MAIL us first.

Important Notes to the Public hoping to visit us:

  • All Booking Requests should be made prior to visit date.
     

  • Please note that family visits are only usually available between March and October. We are closed to any visitors between November~February due to winter conditions (as the hangars are extremely "baltic" cold during winter months).

  • Members are welcome all year round (especially Wednesdays and Saturdays). Membership costs just £26 a year for a family membership.

  • Members may also arrange to bring their family too (by prior appointment). See above.

  • If you're not yet a member, you can JOIN the UAS for just £26 per year.
