About the Museum

The Benalla Aviation Museum is bringing to life one of the important histories surrounding the training of RAAF Pilots during the World War 2 conflict, stationed at the Benalla Airfield and operated as 11 EFTS Squadron.

The Benalla Aviation Museum has as its major goal to have Aircraft directly associated with RAAF training aircraft of yesteryear, and currently operates, in conjunction with Mark Carr of Adventure Flights Benalla, two ex-RAAF training aircraft; a de Haviland Moth Minor and a CAC Winjeel.

We are seeking to expand our memorabilia and static aircraft displays and are seeking the support of people to volunteer their time and skill to man the museum during opening hours and take part in our various restoration and other projects.

Amongst our many projects, we are currently rebuilding a de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth which will require tens of thousands of dollars to bring it into flight status, an exciting venture.

We have also recently rebuilt a de Havilland DH.100 Vampire Jet for static display.

Opening Hours

The museum is open on Wednesdays and Sundays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Other inspection times can be arranged for groups by phoning 0429 629 415.
