Aircrewman Training

Aircrewman are currently only selected from within the RN and RM cadres. Grading takes place at RNAS Yeovilton and Culdrose with successful ASW Crewmen completing ground training and a basic acoustics course before going to the Merlin OCU.

Commando Aircrewmen currently carry out some light fixed wing familiarisation flying before going to 705 Sqn at DHFS to do an intensive navigation course on the Squirrel. Successful students move on to a secondary roles and simulator package at either RNAS Culdrose or Yeovilton. On completion they commence Sea King Commando OCU with their Pilot counterparts.
