East Midlands

At East Midlands Airport we have a fantastic new education centre called "Aerozone"and there is also our aviation park "Aeropark".

Aeropark - Aviation Viewing Area

East Midlands Airport is fortunate to have an excellent Aeropark next to the Airport. Run entirely by volunteers, the Aeropark is both an aviation museum and a viewing area. Visitors can view historic aircraft and watch modern jets taking off and landing at East Midlands Airport. The viewing mound is just 170 metres high on the northern side of the main east/west runway at the Airport.

School parties are welcome but must book in advance with the Aeropark Volunteers Association. Please contact us by email or phone to book this.


School groups are given a full guided tour by the Aeropark
£2.00 per supervising teacher
£1.00 per child.

Aerozone  - Education Centre

The Aerozone really is where education takes off. It makes learning real and brings the world of work to life.The Aerozone opened in spring 2010 and is East Midlands Airport’s inspirational education centre. Offering both pre-developed and bespoke opportunities for students of all ages, you get to learn about how an airport works, whilst experiencing the sights and sounds of this inspirational workplace.

The Aerozone offers opportunities for groups from school classes, to extra-curricular groups and community groups, ranging from Rotary to youth groups to youth groups, Brownies and Scouts. Each and every package is built with your group’s needs in mind; giving you ‘behind the scenes’ possibilities which have never been offered before.

The Aerozone has been developed with support from East Midlands Development Agency, through the Catapulting Kids further scheme.
