Bespoke new facilities for helicopter hero’s

The new facilities will replace hangars and squadron office blocks no longer fit for purpose some of which have already been demolished to make way for the new development.

Graham Martin, the DE Project Manager, said:

"We are delighted that the construction phase is now underway. This project has gone through a thorough planning and development phase with much care and attention taken to develop a layout which satisfies both the complex requirements of the end-user, and also budgetary and operational constraints."

Construction work on the first new building began in August 2009. It is due to be completed in November this year and will be the new home to 771 Squadron.
