East Midlands Aeropark


East Midlands Aeropark is situated on the North side of East Midlands Airport and is well signposted from the motorway sevice station M1 J23a and Airport entrance. Located next to the runway with landscaped grounds the Aeropark affords good views over the cargo area and runway. Operated by the Aeropark Volunteers Association (AVA) the exhibits are well presented and good for photographs.

There is free parking available however if travelling by by public transport both SkyLink Derby and Skylink Nottingham both stop at the Aeropark entrance.
