Exploring through this particular section of our book will alert you that Snowdonia, without doubt, has its fair share of tourist attractions to go beyond the expectations of tourists of any age, to embrace and relish to their heart's content. For any one of you, with even the slightest love for all things flying, then a trip to Snowdonia, certainly would not be complete without learning what the Airworld Aviation Museum has to offer. Prepare yourselves for an unforgettable visit to the magical and wonderful place, that has the backdrop of a fully functional airfield. This makes the all-round experience an even more exciting and realistic one! Observing and admiring the design and functions of these amazing planes taking off and landing, could have definitely entertained me for hours on end. To my astonishment, I learnt that this museum in particular, provides their tourists with the opportunity to sit in a cockpit of one of their exhibitions. This unique
experience makes Airworld so different to any other aircraft museum because you feel as if YOU are the pilot making all those difficult decisions faced by today's modern day pilots. A visit here is an absolute must!
Airworld Aviation Museum
Airworld Aviation Museum is based at the former RAF Station Llandwrog, which is now Caernarfon Airport, on the beautiful seafront at Dinas Dinlle. The museum tells a fascinating tale with real planes, models, displays and a mini cinema, screening 20 minute shows. This museum is unique, in that visitors are welcome to sit in the cockpits of early post war jet fighters, and training aircraft, and experience the real thing. Parental supervision required! We also have an interesting airport shop, selling aviation memorabilia. On the same complex, is the airport reception (where you can book pleasure flights over Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula) a modern café and runway viewing area, where you can enjoy watching planes, microlights and helicopters take off and land.
