Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre is on the site of Britain’s first operational military airfield which was established by the Royal Flying Corps in February 1913. Alongside a number of airplane exhibits the Heritage Centre aims to show the human side of the Air Stations history with a collection of contemporary photographs, artefacts and memorabilia. These not only tell of the history of the airfield but also the story of the men and women who served there and those who lived in the area. The Heritage Centre ensures that future generations will remember their service.
The Heritage Centre is organised and operated entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers who are passionate about restoration of aircraft and the history of the people who lived and worked at the Air Station. With a commitment to bringing local history to life, the Heritage Centre allows visitors to become ‘hands-on’ with many opportunities to try on uniforms and touch the many exhibits.
Alongside the exhibits the Heritage Centre organises a number of events throughout the year including the extremely popular Family Open Weekend.
