Please note that we are currently closed to visitors whilst the museum is rebuilt. Unfortunately due to the slow progress of the building work we are unsure what a realistic date for the re-opening is likely to be.

Our current thinking is that it's most likely to be next year. The date will be published here as soon as it's known.


It is with great pleasure that Gatwick Aviation Museum announces that with immediate effect it has appointed Ashley Colella as it's full time museum manager. Ashley is no stranger to the museum having been a volunteer and member of the engineering team for about five years. He will be responsible for the day to day running of the new museum and implementing the strategic objectives as defined by the trustees.

Ashley can be contacted by using the methods shown at the bottom of the page.

Once the new museum is up and running a new telephone number will come into force.

This Aviation Museum has a unique collection of British aircraft from the "golden age" of British aircraft manufacture. From the end of WWII until the 1970's British aircraft designers produced some of the most innovative and advanced aircraft of the day. From post war to cold war, this museum clearly shows that timeline in aviation terms.

In this collection there are examples from the major manufacturers of this period.

Amongst the list are classic names, Avro, Hawker, Gloster, de Havilland, English Electric, Blackburn, Percival.


As mentioned above, the museum is now closed, when we will re-open the museum will be housed in a new building.

The museum site is behind the builders fence and no access (except for regular condition checks on the airframes by museum staff) is allowed. As this implies we cannot accomodate ANY access to the airframes for non museum staff, although this is very frustrating for both us and the many requests we've received for access, there is little we can do about it until the site is returned to our control by the construction company. Construction commenced on the 6th of July. See the news section for more information.

When we do re-open we will need volunteers to operate the museum, probably initially 5 days a week. If you can spare us time to run the museum on any days Wednesdays to Sundays inclusive we would be very happy to hear from you. Please contact the museum with your details and we will talk to you about manning the museum when it re-opens.

Thank you.
