The Heritage Centre & Aerospace Museum at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Bangalore, is located on Airport Road, 8 km. from M. G .Road and only 1.5 km. from Airport. It is a rare display of sorts, first of its kind and unique in its nature. A visit to the Heritage centre is a most spectacular feast for the eyes, unseen anywhere in the country. HAL has given Bangalore an unique status City of Aeronautics.
A trip to Bangalore will be incomplete without a visit to the Heritage Centre. A visit to the Heritage Centre takes you into a new world of Aerospace and speaks volumes about the technological growth of our nation. One will be taken to dizzy heights by looking at the magnificent aircraft on static display at the Museum. The growth of HAL from Nineteen Forties is shown chronologically by a wonderful photo exhibition. The photographs are of very rare collection and nostalgic.
An audio visual at the lounge shows you HAL’s contribution in our country’s Aerospace programs. An exciting experience of flying can be had in the modern flight simulators at the centre. A panoramic view of the landing and take off of various aircraft at HAL Bangalore Airport can be had from the ATC Tower mockup located at the roof top. The view of the runway from the Heritage Centre ATC, has a wide angle effect and shows the entire stretch of runway. (This is better than what one can view from the Bangalore Airport gallery). This is a place to visit for one and all. A visit once to the Heritage Centre will tempt one to visit again.
