The Midland Air Museum http://www.midlandairmuseum.co.uk/about.php is a small aircraft museum run by enthusiasts on the perimeter of Coventry Airport, where BATC will have exclusive use of the lecture room seating 60+ people and a small hanger where the demo area, test and fix it area, members bring and buy and a few trade stands will be held. There is plenty of car parking and access in to the site will be available for any special interest vehicles.

The venue is centrally located with good transport links and close to the M1, M6, M42, M40 and M69 giving easy access from most areas of the country and there are a number of competitively priced hotels nearby.
