No.1 Flying Training School, based at RAF Shawbury, will be conducting essential night flying training from Monday 11th January 2021 for approximately 4 weeks. Crews will operate from RAF Shawbury throughout Low Flying Area 9, covering Shropshire and the borders of adjacent counties.

No.1 Flying Training School trains and prepares the next generation of helicopter aircrew ready for frontline service in the Royal Navy, Army and the Royal Air Force. Night flying is an essential skill needed for front-line operations, enabling Aircrew to operate in the dark.

Crews will be training using Night Vision Devices, like those used on operations in hostile environments and for supporting emergencies, such as the Whaley Bridge Dam collapse last year and more recently the COVID-19 Pandemic.
