Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre
Jet fighters, bombers, giant in-flight refuelers — and only ten minutes from Newquay! Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre is a fantastic opportunity for all the family to experience the excitement of aviation
Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre is a fantastic opportunity for all the family to experience the excitement of aviation. CAHC celebrates and presents Britain’s aviation heritage from the age when it proudly lead the World.
Set amongst the massive, looming silhouettes of a complex of ex-RAF HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) buildings that were designated as a forward operating base for the Buccaneer Maritime Strike force.
Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre puts you straight into the atmosphere of 1950s, 60s and 70s military flying.
Looking is good, listening is great, but touching is better! Most of our aircraft are accessible, inside and out, so that you can have a guided tour (of the big ones) or sit in the pilot’s seat of the fighters, and imagine what it might be like to fly in those amazing aircraft.
They have indoor and outdoor exhibits – so visit us whatever the weather.
A lovely 1950s diner style café. Picnic areas. Gift shop stocked with interesting souvenirs.
