Highland Aviation Museum, Inverness, lies within Dalcross Industrial Estate, adjacent to the western perimeter of Inverness Airport.

The museum was established in 2005, and is staffed primarily by an enthusiastic team of owners and volunteers.[1]

The collection is located only a few minutes walk from the terminal building of Inverness Airport, and comprises an outdoor exhibition of aircraft including an airport fire tender; and an indoor exhibition of aviation history in the highlands together with a jet age section.

In the outdoor exhibition is a collection of complete aircraft and cockpits. A number of the cockpits are open to visitors, and can be sat in. The collection includes the following aircraft, among others:

  • Blackburn Buccaneer S1 XK532
  • Panavia Tornado GR1
  • Hawker Hunter F1 WT660
  • Vickers Valiant B1 (Cockpit)
  • Jet Provostdddddd T3 & T4 (Cockpit)
  • HP Herald 214 (Forward Fuselage)

Indoors, the aviation history section reflects on the first flight in the Highlands in 1912 and aviation pioneer Captain Fred Fresson. It also looks at RAF aircrew, and the history of RAF Dalcross, a World War II establishment which formed the basis for Inverness Airport. Next door to the aviation history section is the jet age section, which features information displays, models, and artefacts.
