Aviation Shops In London

Sun Sep 13, 2009 4:35 pm

Hi there,

next month of October I will stay three days in London and want to know some stores and adresses of aviation in the city.

Will be grateful to know something from the Brit members at A.Net or others.

Thanks in advance,

Gerard

What exactly are you looking for? Transair has a shop in london, but it caters mainly for pilots.

Hi there,

thanks for the answers. I'm searching for a shop specialized in civil aviation with plane models and civil plane books for sale.

If it's possible in the main city of London or near, easy to reach by public transport. I don't want to lease a car during my stay there.

Regards,

Gerard

Try the below, Folyles, in Central London. It is not a specialist shop but has a big aviation section and also large sections on anything else. A really good store. The big store is on Charing Cross Road near Tottenham Court Road Underground station.
