The building in which the museum calls home had its origins in the founding of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP). Built in 1941, it was the drill hall for #37 Service Flight Training School. The drill hall was one of 7,000 buildings built in support of the BCATP. Left vacant and unused for a time post war, the building eventually became home to Bullock Helicopters. Bullock Helicopters performed oil exploration, search and rescue, and transport for seismic crews and their equipment. Other companies also hung their shingles above the door, the last of which was Kenting Helicopters. Upon their departure in 1985 they offered Museum founder Bill Watts the use of the hangar for the museum.
