The Aeropark is happy to host group visits which are pre-arranged and usually planned outside public opening times. These may be educational projects by schools or activities by organisations such as cadets, scouts and guides. The invitation is also open to aviation societies, business associations and professional and social organisations. A small fee is charged per person – currently £5 per adult (over 16) and £3 per child.
BOOKING A VISIT
The visits are conducted by AVA members who are all volunteers and have a wide range of aviation experience and knowledge. Depending upon the requirements and objective of the group's visit, we will try to match the volunteers to meet the aspirations of our visitors.
For visits including children, we have a quiz based on the aircraft at the Aeropark. There is also a Word Grid containing the names of many of the exhibits. These can be used during or after the visit to the Aeropark.
During the guided tour, groups will be allowed onto one or two of our big aircraft including the VC10 and the Nimrod. The tour takes about an hour.
Group visits are usually held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings between March and October..
You can enquire about a booking by emailing the Visits Coordinator on the link below. Please include the name of your school/group in the header field of the email. We would also like to have an idea about numbers of both pupils/youngsters and adults.
The Aeropark has a function room which can be hired for use including meetings, presentations, parties etc. It is capable of seating up to 40 people. The room includes presentation and audio/visual equipment.
