Situated on the edge of Snowdonia, Caernarfon Air World was created in 1940 as RAF Llandwrog, and it was here that the first RAF Mountain Rescue Team was formed.

In the great hanger at Caernarfon Air World, you can see planes and helicopters in landscaped settings, aircraft engines, ejector seats and a huge collection of over four hundred model aircraft.

If you enjoy the history and nostalgia associated with planes and flying, this is the place for you and it is "Hands On"  You can sit in the cockpits take the controls in the Varsity Trainer and wonder round the full sized planes.

 Air Caernarfon Ltd. There are also exhibitions featuring Local Aviation History, the story of the Dambusters, Welsh Flying V.C.'s, the first RAF Mountain Rescue Service, fascinating wartime newspapers. There is a new section on the Fleet Air Arm and a cinema where you can watch aviation films, plus a well stocked museum gift shop. For small children there is a excellent adventure playground built around a Dragonfly helicopter.
