Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre in Newquay

Visit us at the aviation centre, taking a stroll through the Hardened Aircraft Shelter. Sit inside the Hawker Harrier jet, along with several other classics. The Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre is a fantastic experience for all in the family to experience the excitement of aviation. CAHC celebrates and presents Britain’s aviation heritage from the age when it proudly lead the World. Set amongst the massive, looming silhouettes of a complex of ex-RAF HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) buildings. They were designated as a forward operating base for the Buccaneer Maritime Strike force. They were later used by various aircraft on exercise such as Typhoons, Jaguars, F16s and finally, in 2008, the last two types to use the HAS site were Harriers and Tornados. CAHC puts you straight into the atmosphere of 1950s, 60s and 70s military flying – and then we offer you a Cornish cream tea and a chance to stock up on gifts and momentos for yourself and for those who can only wish they were here.
