The West Norfolk Aviation Society is a group of aviation enthusiasts which holds monthly meetings at Methwold Social Club in West Norfolk, to share an interest in aviation and related topics.The Society was formed in 1991 by students at the end of an adult education course on airfield history, held at Methwold High School. Then began a programme of monthly meetings. The members come from a wide range of backgrounds: military and civilian aircrew, engineers, technicians, model makers, photographers, students and interested amateurs. Anyone with an interest in aviation is always made welcome. Every new member adds to our fund of knowledge and interest. The only qualification you need is an interest in aviation related matters, at any level.  

What do we do? 
 
Well, during our first year nearly a quarter of a century ago, members visited the Newark Air Museum, the Mosquito Museum at Salisbury Hall and the Aces High Museum at North Weald.
We have relished a nostalgic flight over the Midlands, in a Douglas Dakota. More recently, members have been gliding in Suffolk, inspected the Canberra hangar at Marham, investigated Bruntingthorpes' historic aircraft collection and toured Marshall's of Cambridge. Our away visits are generally made during the summer months.

Our early speakers included Derek Edwards, who gave us a presentation based on aerial photography in Norfolk, and Squadron Leader Crowley who spoke on the first Gulf War. Members have also enjoyed talks from the late Wing Commander Wallis, our former President and world authority on Auto Gyros. 
Others have spoken on Human Powered Flight, Foot Launched Aircraft, Air Accident Investigation and the Russian Air Force. A more up-to-date list of past events and future meetings are on the Calendar page of this website. 

Furthermore, if you have an aviation topic on which you might like to give a presentation, please tell us. Expenses are repaid or we can make a donation to a favourite charity.
Since the summer of 2016, we meet on the first Tuesday or Thursday of each month at:

Mundford Bowls Club, West Hall Road, Mundford, Thetford, Norfolk                   IP26 5DR
