Operating aircraft to ships on an unforgiving ocean is, by its nature, far more hazardous than landing at an aerodrome. Since 1948, in peace and in conflict, the Fleet Air Arm has provided air combat power to Navy at sea.
Dedicated to all those who through duty and sacrifice served their nation as members of the Fleet Air Arm, the Museum seeks to tell their story through sharing our unique collection of aircraft, artefacts and memorabilia.
Today, the RAN Fleet Air Arm Museum is one of the largest regional aviation museums in NSW, containing over 30 aircraft and numerous aviation artefacts tell the story of Australian Naval Aviation and the development of the Royal Australian Navy’s Fleet Air Arm.
It houses innovative displays of military aircraft, engines, weapons, uniforms and equipment. This is a ‘must-see’ for anyone remotely interested in flight. It is located adjacent to HMAS Albatross, Australia’s home of naval aviation.
