We combined a visit to the Army Flying Museum with a short tour of the facilities at the HAAF – and many thanks to the HAAF team for accommodating our small team at such short notice. We had already seen some of the HAAF aircraft ground running on the dispersal and taxiing past from the museum so we were very keen to see the aircraft up close. The host team at the HAAF were brilliant and we were delighted to be able to also get in some of the aircraft – the children were beyond excited. What a memorable day – Thank you HAAF team.

We visited the Flight in the winter months so knew we would receive a guided tour but anticipated limited flight activity. Imagine our surprise to be allowed to observe two ground runs on the dispersal. First was the Beaver – what a fantastic noise, even through the ear defenders. How lovely to see this old lady of the skies fire up and breathe deeply on the tarmac. Then the Sioux helicopter – a little reluctant to get all 6 cylinders firing at first but then a wonderful sight, sound and smell. What a privilege to be hosted so well and carefully like this. Thank you.

My family arranged for my visit to the flight as a surprise and I can say that this exceeded my expectations in every way. It was like stepping back in time to when I was a young pilot – the smells and sights were pure nostalgia. The flight in the Scout was everything I could have hoped for. Paul was a wonderful host and made me feel very safe and welcome. His routine brought wonderful memories flooding back from my time in aviation. I was struck by the wide variety of aircraft including helicopters, all maintained by a very merry band of volunteers. What a day! Thank you.
