Army Air Discovery Day

This Army Air experience combines modern rotary aviation with heaps of Army flying history too! On your Army Air discovery day you’ll be taking to the skies in a Bell JetRanger helicopter and then enjoying full access to the Museum of Army Flying where a cream is included too.Taking off from Thruxton Aerodrome your helicopter buzz flight will whisk you the short distance south towards Middle Wallop. The aim of the flight is to give you a good look at the Army Aviation Centre from the air. The garrison is nestled around a picturesque aerodrome which is the largest grass airfield in the UK. It’s here that Army Air Corps personnel are trained in air and ground crew roles.As well as being an active training base the site is also home to the Museum of Army Flying. After seeing the site from the air you will be able to take yourself to Middle Wallop to spend time exploring this rather compelling visitor centre as entrance is included with this Army Discovery package. You will be led on a journey of army aviation through the years from The Royal Engineers The Royal Flying Corps Air Observation Post Squadrons and Glider Pilot Regiment to the current Air Army Corps that has been in existence since 1957.It houses upwards of 40 fixed and rotary aircraft on display plus lots of other fascinating articles and items of Army Air memorabilia for you to discover during the day. There’s also plenty of space around the Museum of Army Flying for aircraft so you might well sport Army Air Corps liveried Alouettes Squirrels and Scout choppers.And to round off your brilliant Army Air experience you’ll head to the museum’s Apache cafe where you’ll be served a delicious cream tea overlooking the apron. We think that’s a rather nice way to conclude a day filled with everything aviation that covers fixed wing and rotary civil and military.
