  • A good hour will do the whole thing. Its not a great place but no means bad. Great for kids to see helicopters close up, could do with a cash injection to make it more appealing with a few attractions maybe. It is what it is.
  • Love this place. Had the potential to be very boring, but was a great day out with the kids. Been back again since, and the only disappointing thing was that the cafe is temporarily relocated whilst they redevelop that area, so no cooked food for now. Best budget I ever ate last time we went!
  • Lovely wee museum. Packed full of some wonderful examples of Rotorcraft over the years. The newly done up control tower exhibit on the history of the airfield is great too! The volunteers in the museum are so helpful and friendly and happy to chat. The museum has free parking, a cafe, a gift shop and toilets. They do flights as well which I didn't do but this would be worth booking!
  • Amazing place to visit for the full history of Helicopter flight - there truly is something for everyone here. Leisure flights are available, as well as more information about every aspect of helicopter flight that you could ever imagine - from aerodynamics to engines, through to war stories and civilian flight information! The aircraft contained are extremely well maintained and displayed fantastically. You will not be disappointed!
  • For aircraft enthusiasts. Educational for family and kids as they can get close to the helicopters. Engine's are well displayed with detail about the helicopters aviation history.
