MISSION STATEMENT
NO. 1 BRITISH FLYING TRAINING SCHOOL MUSEUM, INC, Located at TERRELL, TEXAS

To celebrate at the site of the FIRST ROYAL AIR FORCE FLYING TRAINING SCHOOL in the UNITED STATES the history and importance of the BRITISH COMMONWEALTH and AMERICAN cooperation in war and peace.

During World War II thousands of British pilots learned to fly at six civilian training schools in the United States. The first and largest of the schools was in Terrell, Texas. After the United States entered the war, American Aviation Cadets also trained at the school. More than 2,000 Royal Air Force and American Army Air Force pilots earned their wings over North Texas between 1941 and 1945. Terrell’s citizens welcomed the student pilots to their community and many life-long bonds were forged.

The museum celebrates this little known chapter of World War II history. The collection includes hundreds of historical items: log books, training materials, WW II memorabilia and uniforms.The museum’s archives contain the most extensive record of the No. 1 British Flying Training School that exists.

Visit the No 1 British Flying Training School Museum's Website to learn more.

Admission to the Museum is free; however, donations are greatly appreciated as it helps the musuem continue providing services that support their cause and continue to honor those that served. Donations can be made directly to iGive.Com
