705 Squadron

705 Squadron is the Single-Engine Advanced Training squadron of the DHFS based at RAF Shawbury in Shropshire . The DHFS provides basic helicopter training for pilots of the three Services and Foreign and Commonwealth countries.

The School also provides advanced, multi-engine training and other special courses for the three Services. The concept of a DHFS was born during the Defence Cost Study of 1994. This led to the selection of a single site for basic helicopter training using contractor-owned aircraft and a proportion of civilian flying instructors. 705 Squadron teaches instrument flying, navigation, night flying and search and rescue techniques.
