A charitable society that is a diverse group of enthusiasts, working on a voluntary basis to further public education in the history of aviation.


We are also winners of the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.

What aircraft do we have?

Our heritage collection currently includes 35+ aircraft, ranging from vintage WWII fighters through Cold War-era fast jets, Shorts-designed & built aircraft, civilian aircraft, plus military helicopters, engines, artefacts and rare aviation reference materials, all with strong links to aviation within the island of Ireland.

Where are we located?

Our aircraft are housed within an ex-WWII hangar at Maze Long Kesh, outside Lisburn (on the site of the old prison).

Can you join the Aviation Society?

Yes. Enjoy exclusive Membership Benefits when you join the Ulster Aviation Society. Download our Membership Form here, or if you visit our hangar, one of our Hangar Volunteers can help you join as well.

Can you visit the Hangar to see our Aircraft?

Yes. All public visits are organised by prior arrangement.  We cater for group visits, school trips (children’s groups should be around 30 max.) and tour groups.

We are only open from March ~ October. It's too cold in the hangar during the Northern Ireland Winter for visitors, so it's hangar volunteers only during this "Baltic" period of the year. Layers, hats, scarves and gloves required!

We're now No.1 for 'Things To Do In Lisburn'
