Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre

Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre

The Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre is a fantastic experience for all in the family to experience the excitement of aviation
Come and meet our team. Climb aboard, learn about, enjoy and experience aviation history, up close and personal! CAHC celebrates and presents Britain’s aviation heritage from the age when it proudly lead the World.
The Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre is like no other aircraft museum. Set amongst the massive, looming silhouettes of a complex of ex-RAF HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) buildings, our intention is to encourage you to get into as many amazing aircraft as possible, experience what is was like to fly these incredible fighters, bombers, trainers and in-flight refuelling tankers – anyone and everyone, young or less–young, all-day, every day!
But we’ve only been here since 2015! The Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre was originally created to save a collection of historic aircraft that were facing an uncertain fate following the closure of an ambitious, but short-lived project to bring a substantial aviation museum to Cornwall.
A small group of local enthusiasts created a new organisation to take on responsibility for the endangered airframes, rent exciting ex-RAF premises. Supported by a tireless team of volunteer helpers, they set up a new museum with a fresh approach – get the visitors involved, let them get ‘up close and personal’ with the aeroplanes, tell them the stories and the background of these exciting machines. The volunteer guides have become the heart and soul of the centre, many are ex-service personnel and love to advise and inform, explaining the history and exciting tales of the aircraft.
