What is Navy Wings?

Britain’s great naval aviation heritage is one of the most remarkable stories of the past hundred years. It is a story of epic achievement, heroic and daring actions and world leading technological advancement that radically shaped history.

Funded entirely by public donations, Navy Wings brings the excitement and discovery of this story to life restoring, maintaining and flying a collection of historic aircraft which display to over three million people annually at air shows and events up and down the country.



Our flying aircraft are a golden thread from the Royal Naval Air Service of World War I, through to the Fleet Air Arm of today. They include both piston and jet powered aircraft, seaplanes and helicopters, they are a national asset of incomparable value.


Navy Wings is unique in creating a collective of flying vintage aircraft to bring the story of naval aviation to life. Our historic aircraft provide a tribute of remembrance to the fortitude and sacrifice of all who served in the Royal Naval Air Service and Fleet Air Arm.

About Us

Launched by the Fly Navy Heritage Trust, Navy Wings creates a collective partnership with other naval aircraft owners to actively promote the nation’s naval aviation heritage and reinforce the charity’s objectives to educate, inspire and remember.
