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.
RNAS Culdrose Air Day will be held on 31st July 2014.
Air Day will be action-packed from start to finish. As fast jets and military aircraft zoom across the skies, budding aviators and those who once dreamt of flying can experience at first-hand life inside one of Europe’s largest helicopter bases.
Air Day is the only day of the year when the public can step into the world of Culdrose and experience the sights, sounds and smells of a working military Naval Air Station.
Famed for heroic rescues, and with frontline helicopter Squadrons supporting the Navy across the globe, Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose is home to a variety of military aircraft including Merlin and Sea King helicopters, Hawk Jets, and the King Air 350 Avengers.
