The History & Heritage

Rolls-Royce is one of the most famous names in engineering throughout the world. From the early 1930s to 2008 Rolls-Royce conducted flight tests and engine development at Hucknall Aerodrome; including the world’s first vertical take-off and landing flight, which led to the technological development of the Harrier jump jet.

Aerodrome re-opened as RAF Hucknall, a light bomber base.
Rolls-Royce shared occupation with the RAF and established engine development and test flying facilies.
