Post war HMS Daedalus continued to play an important role, seeing the new jet fighters as well as the helicopter arrive in the late 1940s and early 1950s. In 1962 the joint Service Hovercraft Unit was formed with the aim of testing hovercraft in an operational military environment. She was finally paid off from the Royal Navy on 29 March 1996.
The Daedalus Virtual Aviation Museum Collection includes the following post war Fleet Air Arm aircraft types which were stationed at Lee-on-Solent, 1945-1996.
