Pay a flying visit

For excitement for all the family in a unique setting, where better to visit than the Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre?

There, you’ll have the chance to explore an amazing collection of jet fighters, bombers, in-flight refuelling tankers and other aircraft, all set in and around a fully functional Cold-War hardened aircraft shelter, right alongside Newquay Airport’s active main runway.

Climb into the Hawker Hunter GA11 transonic jet fighter (COVID-19 measures permitting), then try out the hi-fidelity simulator and fly the same aircraft out of Newquay Airport and around Cornwall!

Tour the aerospace equipment and clothing exhibits and the incredible collection of 1,500 aircraft models, before picking up a memento at the excellent gift shop and grabbing a bite from the handy café.

With something unforgettable for everybody to enjoy, fully compliant with the government’s COVID-19 regulations, The Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre is a must-visit for any family this summer.
