Squirrel HT1

The Squirrel HT1 is used by the Defence Helicopter Flying School at RAF Shawbury for Single Engine Basic & Advanced Rotary Wing training for Royal Air Force, Royal Navy & Army Air Corps pilots. The Squirrel helicopter, manufactured by Eurocopter, became operational in 1997, and since that date the helicopters have amassed over 100,000 hours flying time between them. The introduction of the new UK MFTS fleet means that the Squirrel HT1 will be retired from RAF service soon, so make the most of seeing the helicopter on static display!
