Martlesham Heath Aviation Society

Martlesham Heath airfield was commissioned on 16 January 1917 as a Royal Flying Corps airfield and closed in April 1963. During that time it became the "Aeroplane & Armaments Experimental Establishment" testing both military and civilian aeroplanes. During the Second World War it was a joint RAF and USAAF airfield. The Martlesham Heath Aviation Society was formed in 1982 and has dedicated itself to recording and retaining the history of this once famous airfield in a Second World War Control Tower.

Martlesham Heath Aviation Society is open every Sunday afternoon between April and October inclusive.
