The Army Flying Museum is located beside the Army Air Corps Centre in Middle Wallop, close to Andover in Hampshire.

The museum is about the history of flying in the British Army, from the Balloon sections of the Royal Engineers, through the establishment of the Royal Flying Corps in 1912 and Air Observation Post (AOP)Squadrons. It brings the story up to date with the establishment of the Army Air Corps in 1957, from the merger of the Glider Pilot Regiment and the AOP Squadrons.

History
The collection was started in 1946 at RAF Andover but later moved to Middle Wallop and first opened to the public in 1974.

In 1984, the Museum moved from a location 'behind the wire' to a new, purpose-build hangar which is located on the edge of an active airfield. The Museum has since been extended twice more and now comprises two large aircraft halls (the Prince Michael of Kent Hall and the Hayward Hall) a learning centre, a 1940s house display, a play park and conference facilities.

The collection covers the five main branches of Army Aviation: Royal Engineers (1878-1912), The Royal Flying Corps (1912-1918), Air Observation Post Squadrons (1941-1957), the Glider Pilot Regiment (1942-1957) and the current Army Air Corps (1957-to date).

Over 40 aircraft can be seen in the Museum, and the collection also contains smaller items such as uniforms, medals and equipment which we use to tell inspiring stories about the people involved in Army aviation.
