Rochester Airport, Maidstone Road, Chatham, Kent.  ME5 9SD

Entrance is via the airport main gates that are between the Medway Innovation Centre and the Holiday Inn .

Please Read.

  • The workshop is located in the grounds of Rochester Airport.  It is an operational airport which has 24 hour 7 days security and 24 hour aircraft movements.  Active areas have to be crossed to reach the workshop - always obey the traffic lights.

  • Rochester Airport has CCTV which is recorded as well as monitored  on site.

  • Police and prison dogs regularly use the site for training purposes.  (We wish not for them to be distracted.)

  • Regional Special Branch Police officers and Customs and Immigration Services monitor the airport both on site and remotely with CCTV. 

  • MAPSL is not a museum but an active workshop with limited space.  Always keep within the parked areas and do not touch anything without permission. 

Access:  Come through the gates and traffic lights, turn right in front of the Control Tower and then left to reach the car parking area.  The Main Workshop is the building with the blue doors, but go along the narrow passage to the right and enter by the side entrance.
