Welcome to the

Navy Wings collection

This is our collection of nationally important and historic naval aircraft

The Navy Wings collection represents the history of naval flying from 1909 through to the Fleet Air Arm of today.

As the aim of Navy Wings is to inspire future generations by bringing together the aircraft, people and story of flying from ships, the Trustees have decided to draw in owners of other flying (currently or planned) naval heritage aircraft in order to illustrate this more comprehensively.  Our aim is to build a complete collection of representative naval aircraft to cover the entire period of naval aviation from its inception in 1909, to the present day.

The aircraft are split between the Core Collection (owned and operated by Fly Navy Heritage Trust) and the Associate Collection (Owned and Operated by private individuals). This exciting collection already includes iconic associate aircraft such as the Bristol Scout, the AVRO 504 and the Westland Wasp helicopter alongside our Swordfish, Sea Fury and Sea Vixen.

Our Supporters will then be able to see at first hand the story of maritime aviation, which significantly, has now started to include the rotary wing story.
