Culdrose Air Day
Culdrose Day is held on 29th July each year at the Royal Naval Air Station in Culdrose, which is situated in the outskirts of Helston in the west of Cornwall. This is the only day when the Naval Air Station opens its doors to civilians. The illustrious history of Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose includes the courageous exploits of its men in the Boscastle floods. Twelve squadrons with about 100 aircraft including the new Merlin helicopters, Sea Kings and Hawk jets are currently stationed at the RNAS.
The spectacular visual treat features a five-hour flying display by the latest military aircraft and fast jets. It can be a great family outing with a chance to get insights into day-to-day life of the Aircrew at the Air Station. You can get a first-hand feel of the futuristic controls by actually entering the cockpit of the state-of-the art aircraft and helicopters. Visitors are able to meet personnel who have been part of frontline squadrons all over the world. Besides the air shows, the family has a lot to choose from, informative and interactive exhibitions to motorcycle stunt shows. To top it all, you can satisfy your gastronomic urges by visiting a wide range of food and beverage outlets which are available for the day at the RNAS.
