Exeter Air Cadets Fly From RNAS Culdrose.

Fifteen Air Cadets and two volunteer staff members from 13 (City of Exeter) Squadron enjoyed a fantastic day trip to Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose in Cornwall, Europe’s busiest military helicopter base.

The cadets first visited the Air Traffic Control section. Despite initial bad weather with fog and low visibility, they were all able to take part in a fantastic flight in an 814 (The Flying Tigers) Naval Air Squadron Merlin HM2 helicopter when the weather eventually cleared.

Those that wished to do so were winched from the aircraft. The day was completed with a tour of 736 Naval Air Squadron,which operates the legacy Hawk T1 in the aggressor role.

What a great experience and brilliant day out!
