Commando Helicopter Force Landowners' Day
Published: 02 Oct 2023
Grateful thanks to Landowners.
Landowners Day is an entry in the Commando Helicopter Force’s annual calendar when the Force says ‘thank you’ to landowners in the area and region.
The majority of remote helicopter landing sites within the Yeovilton air operating area belong to private landowners who, on a good will basis permit our helicopters to land on or work and train at low level over their land. These sites are hugely valued and vital to the training carried out by theCommando Helicopter Force to help it deliver its operational capability. Maintaining and further developing flying skills and readiness for operations is a demanding and exacting task.
Achieving high capability and high readiness levels means that the Commando Helicopter Force can deploy its helicopters and crews swiftly to any area of operations worldwide at extremely short notice, and once deployed to undertake operational missions immediately. Whilst training for conflict the crews of the Commando Helicopter Force train equally for peace, such as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations.
