We are now

OPEN for Visits

We're open again for the 2022 season, which we hope will be our busiest season ever post-Covid.

 

Visits to the hangars by non-members of the public are organised by PRIOR arrangement ONLY.

 

We prefer family visits (1-2 car loads of 6-8 people approx.), but are now also accepting Larger Group visits (up to 40 people) again via our Group Booking Form (see section below).

HOW TO BOOK A TOUR FOR YOUR FAMILY / FRIENDS

All applications must be made at least 2 weeks prior to the visit date. Normally we would prefer to bring in a Volunteer Tour Guide to make your visit and tour more interesting.

 

A Volunteer – on their own time – would specifically drive to the hangars to meet you if you create a booking, so please understand that from the outset.

Anyone wishing to visit with family or friends, should make a booking via E-MAIL HERE.

 

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

There are currently 4 tour slots available daily (7 days) at 10.30am/11am and 2pm/2.30pm, and will last approximately 2 hours usually.

 

An E-mailed pre-booking MUST be made for all visits and we need the following:

 Date & Time Slot preferred

Number of Family members that will be visiting with you

your Car registration

your Contact Mobile Number

HOW MUCH DOES A FAMILY VISIT COST?

*Your family visit is FREE OF CHARGE, yes FREE, however the UAS survives on both donations and our volunteers' own time and energy.

 

We hope you are inspired by what you see and experience and feel the aviation passion of volunteers. It is up to you how much you feel it was worth after the personal tour is over but we are very appreciative and welcome a donation afterwards.

You can leave a Secure Donation here via PAYPAL. Then simply type in the amount you wish to donate and leave us a Note to tell us you are, so we know who has donated. Many thanks in advance.

WHAT HAPPENS THEN?

Once you have e-mailed your Booking (the only way we will accept Bookings currently), we will contact you to confirm (either via E-mail or Mobile) your Booking, or if your preferred date & time are not available; we'll then ask you to select another convenient date & time instead.

A Volunteer Tour Guide will then be arranged to coincide with your visit.

We look forward to welcoming you to our hangars and Heritage collection.

 

I WANT TO BRING A LARGER GROUP?

With advanced pre-booking we are again, happy to accept bookings from larger groups including schools.

However, 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.
