Visited today with my girlfriend and two year old son. He had a great time, we've visited other aircraft museums but he enjoyed this the most. Being able to climb into nearly everything was great. We were there for two hours and he didn't want...More

I went with my husband to see this amazing collection of aeroplanes, all made possible by enthusiasts who renovate and man the museum. The experienced volunteers take so much trouble to explain things and make everything interesting you couldn't help but enjoy yourself. Good fun...More

I’m in no way an aircraft fanatic, but this is a great little museum giving an exceptional opportunity to get hands-on. Being able to climb into the cockpits of so many aircraft had this 56 year old running round like a child.

B. D. A. C is well worth a visit. Very reasonably priced and you get to sit in lots of different cockpits. Modellers will have a field day too. Best collection I've ever seen. Will be back very soon

We had several fantastic hours looking around the collection of aircraft and unlike most other aviation museums, you can sit in most cockpits. There are a lot of vintage jet cockpits and and some more complete aircraft, with a hangar of airworthy aircraft. The staff...More

Took our 11 year old son. He absolutely loved it. Got to sit in all the planes/helicopters. Got to watch the planes and helicopters take off too which was great. (Take cash for refreshments)
