East Midllands Aeropark – Castle Donington

Welcome to The Aeropark

The Aeropark is both an aviation museum and a viewing area where you can study the preserved planes of yesteryear or watch the modern airliners of today taking-off and landing at a growing international passenger and cargo airport.

Within the Aeropark there are two viewing mounds which are just 170 metres north of the main east/west runway of the airport (Runway 09 Threshold). The mound which is at the eastern end of the Aeropark is the height of the airport perimeter fence which means that you can get and an unrestricted view across the airport perfect for taking photographs.

The Aeropark has a collection of 18 complete airframes on external display within the park with another 5 aircraft under complete restoration and 4 aircraft sections.

Inside the hanger, there are a number of aircraft engines including a Rolls Royce Spey, Bristol Hercules and Gyron Junior, along with a Link Simulator and numerous other aircraft components, photographs etc.

To see our exhibits and find out more about them come and visit the Aeropark, our volunteers will be happy to talk to you about any of the exhibits, just ask.
