Society of Friends 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.
