Although a little bit off the beaten track, this attraction is well worth visiting if you have even the slightest interest in the development of military flying and aviation in general. The exhibits are extensive and well laid out, depicting the growth of Army aviation from its balloon observer corps origins through to the development of the RAF. It covers the period from the early 1900's to the current day, and there are static exhibits of aircraft and helicopters. As well as these, you can try your hand at "shooting" a tank busting rocket and a rifle (simulations of course!!). Good toilet facilities and there is a restaurant which serves thing like panini, sandwiches and baked potatoes - there is a viewing platform from which you can see helicopters taking off and landing. Facility incorporates a shop. Free wi-fi. Highly recommended for a visit, but I suggest you leave several hours to do it justice.
