Love Popping Past Here
Sep 2021
Always pop in here when driving past and sometimes take lunch here too. Would definitely recommend as there is always something going on here.

Shame the cafe and toilets have gone, it could be so much better if they were still available. So take your own food etc!

Pretty naf for photography as you're shooting through a mash fence all the time unless you can get some shots of them coming in/out before they dip behind the fence. Still miss the cafe' that used to be there, the coffee cap't you warm while waiting for the next lot to come in.

Lots of planes and helicopters
Oct 2020
If you like planes and helicopters this is well worth a stop. There were constant rounds of helicopters and a several planes taking off. No toilets, which was a bit of a shame but it is free to park and watch

Good for first time viewers who enjoy aviation
Jul 2020
Well there is flying and if you've not seen fast jets or helicopters close up then it's worth an hour or so of your time. The forces are among many establishments to encounter down sizing and here is no exception - activity is poorer than it used to be!

In general there is a morning period of activity and an afternoon one, lunchtime is lunchtime for everyone!

The parking / viewing area is not the biggest I've been to so expect tight parking on a bright sunny day.

Not much more to say other than no WC's or rubbish bins.

RNAS Viewings- Maybe
Sep 2019 • Family
We headed to the RNAS Culdrose Airfield Viewing Area as both myself and my son love aircraft. We were lucky to see a Merlin helicopter hovering for quite a while and on another occasion saw two fighter planes take off as we were driving past. Timing and luck is what you need and recommend you take your binoculars!

Great to watch planes
Aug 2019 • Couples
You can see lots of military planes from here, and watch whats going on around the airfield, so if it's a cold day or it's raining, it's the place to go

Unlucky with timing!
Jul 2019
The people in the pitch next to us said they saw loads of helicopters and aircraft taking off in the 20 minutes they were there, but sadly we must have gone at the wrong time, as we didn't see any!

Nothing To See
Jul 2019
It’s an absolute waste of time, you can sit there for hours and not see a thing, a waste of time and fuel getting there, you would do better to go to an actual air show
