2 The idea for this slideshow is based on the map on the left produced by the Fly Navy Heritage Trust. One hundred years of Royal Naval Air Stations. Maps used in our production are prior to the 1974 boundary changes. While every care has been taken in the preparation of this slideshow, accuracy cannot be guaranteed.

3 Royal Naval Air Stations Over The Past 100 Years The Admiralty ordered its first airship on 7 May 1909 and it is from this single standing point that naval aviation progressed so rapidly. The first four naval pilots learned to fly on the Isle of Sheppey in 1911, home of the first Royal Naval Air Station at Eastchurch. Once their wings had been awarded, naval pilots put their new skills to use very quickly. The Fleet experienced its first take offs and landings to mention just one aspect of aerial warfare and by the end of World War 1 in 1918 the Royal Naval Air Service could boast 67,000 officers and men, 2949 aircraft, 103 airships and 126 coastal stations. Many of these coastal or naval air stations along with those that came into being during World War 2 still exist today, a few still in use by the Royal Navy. Others have become civil airports or have been taken over by the RAF and Army whilst some have, sadly, fallen into disuse and either left to fall down or have become industrial estates, business parks, leisure facilities or supermarkets; one has even become a reservoir. The Fly Navy Heritage Trust has identified and is keen to identify even more of these former sites and to formally designate them as Naval Aviation Heritage Sites. Gill Charles 2010

Additional Information… Under the Government of Ireland Act 1920, "Home Rule" institutions were created in two divisions of Ireland, 26 counties forming Southern Ireland and six counties forming Northern Ireland. This partition was copper fastened by the 1922 Anglo-Irish Treaty, under which Ireland left the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland rejoining two days later. Southern Ireland, which had never functioned as a separate entity, became the Irish Free State, now the Republic of Ireland.

13 Royal Naval Air Stations throughout the rest of the world. Researched and compiled by Gill Charles. Mobile Naval Operating Air Bases, MONABs, were a series of mobile, self-contained units able to repair, and prepare for service, aircraft, engines, and components as required for ships of the British Pacific Fleet. Each were initially assembled at the MONAB HQ at HMS Flycatcher (Ludham then Middle Wallop). In total 10 MONABS were established and one Transportable Aircraft Maintenance Yard (TAMY)
