Scouts looking at outside aircraftThe Museum runs a series of days which will cover the requirements of various stages of the Air Activities Badges. We can cover all of stage 1 (aimed at Beavers), stage 2 (aimed at Beavers or Cubs), most of Stage 3 (aimed at Cubs or Scouts) and large parts of stages 4-6 (aimed at Scouts or Explorers).

Attendees will learn about many aspects of aviation and gain access to several areas normally off limits to visitors. Museum staff will lead activities based on 30 minute slots, those taking part will move around those activities in groups of 7-12. Please note that places are limited and pre-booking is essential.

Please note the following

  • The normal booking will be from Scout Groups with 7 or more participants, whilst it is sometimes possible to accept individual applications this can not be guaranteed

  • The museum has very few CRB checked staff so it is important that each group present has a CRB adult

  • Participants will need to bring a packed lunch. Hot and cold drinks as well as cake, biscuits and sweets are available in the NAAFI.

  • There is no cost for this activity, but the museum depends on donations in order to continue its work.

  • The museum has a souvenir shop which has items with a wide range of prices.

  • The museum is limited as to how many participants it can take on any day, so please be fairly accurate with your estimates so that we can accommodate as many as possible.

  • It may be necessary to create groups of Beavers/Cubs/Scouts from more than one Scout Group.

  • At the end of the day Beavers and Cubs will have qualified for the respective badge, the museum do not supply the badges (if you bring them we are happy to present them if you like).

  • These events are usually heavily booked and we have to turn people away so please be accurate with your numbers to avoid others missing out.

  • Each group can only take part in one stage on the day.
