Culdrose Air day
Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose has been given the official ‘go ahead’ to hold an Air Day in 2014. The Cornwall based Air Station is pleased to announce that this year’s event will be held on Thursday 31st July.
The event, which has become a firm favourite on the Cornish Event Calendar, enables the general public to experience the sights and sounds of one of Europe’s largest helicopter bases, whilst seeing a fantastic Air Display in the skies. It’s the only day of the year when the public can ‘experience the world of Culdrose’ and see what happens behind the security gates.
The Commanding Officer of Culdrose, Captain Mark Garratt said: “Now that we have been given the official go ahead to hold an Air Day, my team are already starting to book aircraft for the Air Display and are working hard to make it a day to remember. This year should be a really special event, with some very special visitors.”
He added: ”Often our Air Day is the only opportunity for non-military personnel to come inside the gates of Culdrose and see what a Naval Air Station is really like. The public will be able to meet those who serving on frontline Squadrons, learn about our outstanding training facilities, jump inside one of our aircraft and learn about the Operations that we have been involved in recently.”
Tickets for the event will be on sale after Easter. More information about the event and a list of display aircraft will be available soon at www.culdroseairday.com
