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.


Planning consent for the replacement of our old chicken sheds with a new modern construction was granted by Mole Valley District Council on the 3rd of December 2014. Subject to a legal agreement being agreed and put into place, work should begin in January 2015.

Please note the museum is now closed until 2015 when we will re-open the museum housed in a new building.

Details of opening times and dates will be published on this site as soon as the information is available.

When we 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 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.

We, at the museum, would like to say a big thank you to all of those people who have visited us during the past year and to thank all of the many people who have supported us with their kind remarks and encouragement, thank you.

From: The trustees and all of the volunteers at Gatwick Aviation Museum
