Discover Europe's largest collection of Royal Naval aircraft at Fleet Air Arm Museum - an award-winning naval aviation museum located in Yeovilton, Ilchester. The all-weather attraction is the perfect place for all the family with immersive experiences like the Search and Rescue Sea King Helicopter walk through, the Aircraft Carrier Experience and a walkthrough of the iconic Concorde 002.


Fleet Air Arm Museum is home to over 102 aircraft, covering over 100 years of Royal Navy history.

Explore each hall to get an insight into the past and see the fascinating development of naval aircraft from the delicate early bi planes to the superfast modern marvels.

Since opening in 1964, Fleet Air Arm Museum has grown its collection of Royal Navy aircraft to 102. The museum features large exhibition halls containing dozens of aircraft which tell the story of naval aviation from pioneering manned kites and aircraft of the early 20th century, through to fighter aircraft of WW2, and the fast jets and helicopters of the modern era.

The extensive mix of aircraft makes Fleet Air Arm Museum's collection the largest collection of historic naval aircraft in Europe. From hall 1 and the development of Royal Navy air power and technology, to the epic Concorde 002 in hall 4 explore and learn about the theory of flight.

The centrepiece of the ‘Leading edge’ flight technology hall is the world-famous Concorde 002, the first British Concorde to fly in 1969.

Britain’s aircraft industry has always been at the forefront of aviation technology and innovation and Hall 4 also showcases historic and significant examples like the world airspeed record breaking Fairey Delta 2 from 1956, and the Handley- Page 115 Concorde development test aircraft.
