South Wales Aviation Museum

During the past few months, I have been helping Gary Spoors set up his new engine shop facilities on the former site of RAF St Athans in South Wales. Gary is a very keen custodian of many former military aircraft.
The South Wales Aviation Museum was set up to preserve the rich Aviation History in South Wales and to inspire the next generation of aviators and engineers. The museum was a vision of Gary Spoors and John Sparks and was created through the dedication of our amazing volunteers.
SWAM is a not for profit organisation and registered charity completely self-funded. 100% of the proceeds go to the upkeep and running of the museum and gift shop.
They encourage visitors to interact with the aircraft and exhibits which enables them to have a fully immersive experience. They have a selection of cockpits open for you to be able to take a closer look at.
The Museum also contains a vast array of aircraft on display as well as exhibition rooms, a gift shop and an onsite cafe. SWAM also has a conference room and bar which is available for hire
SWAM also hold regular organised visits from schools, cub groups, beavers groups and clubs.
If you would like to organise a group visit you can contact them by email at or give them a call on 01446 789787
