Rich in aeronautical history
Once decaying, the Hullavington campus has been meticulously restored to celebrate its aviation history. It’s also the completion of a journey for building contractors Kier, who are redeveloping the site they first built more than 80 years ago – to start a new journey for Dyson.
Home to the Whittle gas-turbine engine
One of the many components stowed here from 1939 was the iconic Whittle gas-turbine engine, which helped change the very nature of aviation. Just as the engine was used to teach aircrew, today a restored Whittle engine is regularly powered up to inspire Dyson engineers at our Malmesbury campus.
A teaching airfield
Formerly a Ministry of Defence airfield, this vast site was built in 1937 primarily for training aircrew and flight instructors, as well as a base for 1,000 aircraft.
