Aviation Day

  • Date September 16, 2018
  • Time 10:00a.m. - 5:00p.m.
  • Suitable for Everyone

Touchdown at Brooklands Museum for a kerosene-fuelled day of aviation antics and activities.

The Museum’s aircraft and cockpits will be open for visitors to explore, and our live aircraft will be wheeled out onto the restored Finishing Straight for engine runs. There will be plenty of aviation-themed family activities throughout the day, including our popular Pedal Planes for under 5s and an aviation-themed workshop in the Shell pagoda.

Don't miss seeing Concorde's nose droop at around 3:00pm. There will be a raffle during the day to win the opportunity to lower the nose of Concorde. Raffle tickets can be purchased in strips of 5 for £5 and will be available on the day from the Museum Shop, outside Concorde and Reception.

The day will start with visiting light aircraft and Helicopter fly-ins to the grass airfield at Mercedes-Benz World, aircraft already confirmed include 8 Tiger Moths from the 'Diamond Nine Display Team' and a Jet Ranger Helicopter. On the ground, there will even be a chance to see and hear some of the early aircraft in action, as we fire up the engines of the Demoiselle, White Monoplane and Vickers Vimy*.

* Fly-ins and aero-engine runs subject to operational and weather conditions on the day
