Jet Day Saturday 4th October
Three of our beauties will be whistling for their supper on Saturday 4th October when they fire up to prove that, vintage or not, they can still move like airborne greyhounds.
The Vampire T55 and the Jet Provost T3 will provide classic support for the Meteor T7, the world's oldest flyable jet. It's a rare opportunity to see aviation history in full flight, while Minnie, our 525hp mobile water cannon makes lots of noise and localised monsoons on the ground. ...more>
A Minor Celebration
We're looking forward to welcoming the Cornwall Morris Minor Club for their annual rally on 21st September. Come along and see what makes them Britain's favourite affordable classic.
Want to bring your Moggie?
The Club is still accepting bookings for Morris Minor owners who'd like to bring their treasure along. You can book in on the Cornwall Morris Minor Club Website.
There are few things as fragile - or as expensive to repair - as an old aircraft. We have a talented and dedicated team of volunteers and technicians who work tirelessly to restore as many as possible of our charges to airworthiness, and then to keep the rigours of time at bay to keep them flying.

This beautiful and rare Miles Gemini twin arrived recently at our restoration centre in Coventry to begin a two-year project to return her to the sky. It's an expensive undertaking for us, but the aircraft was in danger of being lost and so it was our duty to rescue and preserve it.
