Berkshire's dynamic contribution to aviation history is graphically re-captured at the museum. Run as a charitable trust, the museum is at the historic site of Woodley Airfield, near Reading, U.K. - once the centre of a thriving aircraft industry. Miles and Handley Page aircraft built at Woodley are being re-constructed and exhibited along with fascinating pictorial records and priceless archives.

As well as the Fairey Jet Gyrodyne, Herald, Gannet, Miles Magister, Miles Student and Westland Scout there are many smaller models, photographs and documents to look at and a mini-link trainer for children to experience. The aircraft that are under restoration are not hidden away and on Wednesdays you can see people working on them - and they'll probably be only too happy to explain what they're doing if you ask nicely!

The museum welcomes group visits and runs an active educational programme for schools, linked to National Curriculum requirements, demonstrating the development of aviation techniques. Schools and other groups can be catered for outside normal opening hours, phone 0118 944 8089 for details.
