As you would be aware the Australian government, like other governments around the world, is having to adjust a range of plans and commitments as we work to contribute to the whole of government response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). To that end, Defence has taken the decision to temporarily close our Air Force Heritage Centres, which includes RAAF AAHC, as of 15 Mar 2020. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Our people

The RAAF Base Amberley Aviation Heritage Centre reflects the enthusiasm and dedication that our team of men and women Reservists and volunteers have for military aviation history and particularly that history in south-east Queensland.

Every member of our team is involved in the research, restoration and display of the aircraft and items that make up our collection. When you visit our Centre, the same enthusiastic people will tell you about each display and the story behind it and we hope that these stories get passed on from generation to generation to preserve our military aviation history.

Please meet some of those people!
