Baginton Air Pageant

The initial details for the Baginton Air Pageant are up on the website! As we don't have the space for a full-on air show attracting 20,000 or so people, we're aiming for low-key, themed days like this. A couple of thousand people,...

We're Caretakers for Future Generations

There are very few things more expensive and demanding than old aircraft. They're cranky, temperamental old beasts that like plenty of attention. We're lucky to have an incredibly dedicated and expert team, so they're never starved of the specialist care they need. But it's never enough.

We're a registered charity. We continue to exist thanks to the fantastic support we receive from people like you. People who feel that live, working, historic aircraft should be preserved for future generations to study, admire and love. If you can help us in some small way, either with money or by giving us some of your valuable time, then you'll be helping to preserve Britain's world-leading aviation heritage for generations to come.

Become a Member

The Classic Air Force membership is a great way to be directly involved with us and our aeroplanes. And your subscriptions will directly support the collection and its efforts. Membership starts from as little as £1 a week.

Make a Donation

A small donation will go a long way, especially if you're a UK taxpayer, because then we'll be able to claim Gift Aid on your contribution. So if you donate £10, we actually receive £12.50.


Sponsor Us

Classic Air Force is a high-visibility, high-interest museum with great potential for a sponsor. We're always open to new ideas for sponsoring events, education programmes or displays. So give us a call with your thoughts.

Fly With Us

When you join us for a pleasure flight in one of our classic aircraft you're supporting us at the same time as enjoying an unforgettable experience.  Of course you're welcome on your own or with a friend, but we're always happy to put together group flights for clubs or parties.  If you'd like to book a group of ten or more, please contact us for special group rates.
