“Best helicopter viewing area in UK.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

You are likely to see Sea Kings,Merlins and fixed wing aeroplanes like Hawks and Jetstreams.There are also some harriers that are being mothballed.The coach tours have stopped and the Merlin cafe' has closed permamnently.

“A Great Use of our Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Mary conducted a first-class tour of the RNAS Culdrose Airfield. She is knowledgeable and amusing and is a great spokesperson for the mission and staff there. This is a unique opportunity to see some real heroes at work.
