Culdrose Air Day.

Culdrose History
The origins of RNAS Culdrose can be traced back to 1942 when Admiralty surveyors arrived to begin preliminary surveys of 750 acres of land south of the town of Helston. Five years later, under the command of Captain G C Dickins, RN, Culdrose was commissioned as HMS Seahawk.

With a life expectancy of about ten years, the air station, originally designed as a wartime airfield, had three runways, could accommodate nine squadrons and had a complement of about 1500 personnel. Initially planned as a Naval Fighter School, it rapidly developed other roles including the trials of the Navy's first jets, training of Airborne Early Warning crews and as a home base for the Front Line carrier based aircraft. Although over the years the emphasis has changed from fixed wing fighter aircraft to rotary wing, today, the role of the air station remains largely the same.

Today, RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall is one of Europe's largest helicopter bases. The helicopters and their highly trained crews are deployed to ships all over the world to support the Royal Navy in its global operations. Helicopter roles include Anti-Submarine Warfare, Anti-Surface Warfare and Airborne Surveillance and Control.

Also, a Squadron of Search & Rescue helicopters is on constant standby 365-days a year to react to emergencies throughout the Southwest region.
