Welcome to the Martlesham Heath Aviation Society website.

Our aim is to preserve the heritage and aviation history of Martlesham Heath. Our Society and it's associated museum celebrates the rich and varied history of Martlesham Heath as a centre for aircraft testing, development and operations from 1916 through to it's closure in 1963.

We look to remember those who lived and gave their lives in the Royal Flying Corps, Royal Air Force and United States Army Air Force whilst stationed at Martlesham.

We also run a programme of monthly talks and can provide guided visits. We're always looking for new members, volunteers and supporters.

Please come and visit us or get in contact!

MHAS recognise the contribution of many people and organisations in building and maintaining the Society.  Special thanks to those who allow us to use photographs including Richard E Flagg @UK Airfields, Ross Whitaker and Little Friends.
