Airfield Viewing Area

Airfield Viewing Area

In addition to the exhibitions, Hall 2 also has public viewing areas of the air station where depending on operational demands you may see naval aircraft going through their rigorous training procedures.

The Fleet Air Arm Museum looks out onto Europe's busiest military Air Station RNAS Yeovilton.

More than 100 rotary aircraft operate from here.


RNAS Yeovilton is the home base for the Royal Navy's Wildcat, RN Commando Force of Wildcat, Merlin Helicopters and the RN Grob Tutor basis trainers. It is also home of the Wildcat helicopters of 1 Regiment Army Air Corps that is based here.

You might also see the Swordfish and Sea Fury aircraft of the Royal Navy Historic Flight arriving or departing for one of its display season air shows.
