13th Annual Cockpitfest

16th & 17th June 2012

Newark Air Museum are proud to invite you to Cockpitfest.  Everybody loves getting close to aircraft - and what better way than an annual meet of aircraft cockpits, instrument panels and their collectors in the friendly and informal setting of Newark Air Museum.


Recent successes have proven the attraction of the event, with attendances growing steadily from year to year. All cockpit, panel and equipment owners/restorers are most welcome to exhibit. Diversity is what we seek and the attendance of new exhibitors is particularly welcome.

Location and admission

Centrally located just off the A1 at Newark, Nottinghamshire, UK, the Newark Air Museum has a renowned collection of airframes and other exhibits. As if the visiting cockpits weren't enough, the museum always plan to open up some of its aircraft to public inspection at different times during the Cockpitfest weekend too.


Regular admission charges to the museum apply during Cockpitfest. There is disabled access, a great cafe and plenty of car parking. It should be noted by visitors that, as many cockpits travel a long way to attend the event, it should be expected that some will begin to leave from 2.00pm onwards on Sunday. Early viewing is therefore recommended to avoid disappointment.
