In view of Government guidelines on reducing the spread of Coronavirus, the SOFFAAM Council has decided to cancel forthcoming talks.  The status of talks is under constant review and will be re-instated as soon as possible.  When we can re-start the talks programme, this will publicised here on our website, also on that of the Museum.

If you have bought a ticket on-line, the Fleet Air Arm Museum will be refunding those payments.

Enquiries about talks can be made to 07768 562976

Society of Friends of the Fleet Air Arm Museum

The Society of Friends of the Fleet Air Arm Museum (SoFFAAM) was formed in 1979. A thriving and active organisation, its object is the education of the public by promotion, support, assistance and improvement of the museum through the activities of a group of members. It aims to achieve this object by a lively programme of events, including talks and excursions. Some details of these events can be seen in this website.

View our introductory video here:

The Society draws its membership from a broad cross-section of society (by no means all from a military background) at home and abroad. Membership at present exceeds 1,000 and continues to expand. The membership fee has been held at £12 per year for several years and the Society’s Council has no plans to raise this in the near future. Members are invited to contribute to our lively Journal “Jabberwock” (provided free of charge to all members).

Members who wish to receive reprints of individual articles from the Jabberwock archive (which includes every copy from the earliest days) should contact the Editor (see the contacts page for details). For individual articles, this service is at present free. We have a long-term aim to provide a comprehensive index for the archive, although achievement of this aim will depend partly on the level of demand.

SoFFAAM is a Registered Charity, No. 280725.

FAA Museum entry is available via the FAAM portal below

Entry to the the Fleet Air Arm Museum is available to SoFFAAM Members who MUST book a ticket/time slot using the special FAAM portal


Usual membership concessions are suspended in the short term. If a member brings guests, they will have to purchase standard entry tickets from the Museum website

This will hopefully be reviewed in the near future but please bear with the Museum staff as they give back the valuable benefit of Museum entry to SoFFAAM members
