Planning Permission Granted for New Building (Full Story)

We are pleased to announce that we have been granted planning permission for a new, multi function building which will replace our Friendship Tea Room.

This new building will provide educational facilities and a modern meeting room. We will also be able to improve our visitor facilities with new toilets and expand our archive store.

Construction is planned over the winter of 2019/20 and we will give further updates on this exciting project in the next few weeks.

Piper Aztec G-AYMO (Full Story)

Since its arrival at the Museum from Wellesbourne Mountfield some years back, our Piper Aztec has been receiving some attention to restore it to display condition.

Under the supervision of our Keeper of Exhibits, Matthew Taylor and Stephen Taylor, many missing parts have been traced and fitted and the aircraft now looks much better than when we purchased it.

Piper Aztecs were once a common sight flying from Norwich Airport for both commercial and private operators, so we are pleased to display G-AYMO as a representative example of the type.

New Arrival (Full Story)

Today saw the arrival of a new aircraft exhibit, F27 G-BCDN that was recently used in the locally based KLM UK engineering school.

This friendship is currently in an AirUK colour scheme but was with Air Anglia, previously. The aircraft consists of the main fuselage and wings up to and including the engine mounts.

A rewarding, successful but long day for all those people involved with the move. But a great addition to the museum.

Thank you.

We are still open (Full Story)

We are pleased to confirm that the City of Norwich Aviation Museum is open as normal.  All our aircraft that needed to be moved for the expansion and adjustment of our grounds due to the constuction of the Norwich Northern Distibutor Road were towed to their new positions in the spring and careful planning of this work enabled us to remain open as normal.

You can see how the movement of our aircraft happened here;

We are ready for your visit. The new layout  of the site gives new opportunities to view and photograph our aircraft in their new positions. We now have a much larger site and if you have not made a visit to us in the last year, much has changed and there is more to see.  We are also making improvements to our car park and entrance and a new display buidling has recently arrived. As a registed charity, you suport is vital to our future developments . We have kept our admission prices at their 2015 llevel  and we often have special offer vouchers to make a visit to us even more attractive.
