RNAS Culdrose receives flight safety award
RNAS Culdrose, near Helston, has won a coveted award in recognition of its work to promote flight safety.
The Bambara Flight Safety Trophy is presented each year to the ship, squadron or unit which does the most to promote and endorse safety in the world of naval aviation.
The award comes after a year of considerable disruption for Culdrose. Despite playing a key role in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations and the 2012 Olympics, more than two thirds of the runway surfaces and supporting infrastructure at the air base underwent major refurbishment in 2012.
Commanding Officer Captain Willie Entwistle accepted the trophy on behalf of RNAS Culdrose.

He said: "Flight safety is everybody's business at Culdrose, so this award is a reflection of how well all personnel have done at the Air Station in this regard this year.
"Whether aviator, engineer, support staff, service person, civil servant or contractor, the whole Culdrose team should be proud of their achievement."
The trophy was presented by Rear Admiral Russ Harding OBE, Rear Admiral Fleet Air Arm and Assistant Chief of Naval Staff (Aviation & Carriers).
He said: "It gives me great pleasure to award the Bambara Flight Safety Trophy for 2012 to RNAS Culdrose.
"Embracing all tenets of flight safety, the station has been forward leaning in the education of not only its military personnel, but the large numbers of civilian contractors.
"Complete engagement across the board resulted in comprehensive flight safety awareness amongst the workforce which enabled the station to maintain its operational commitments and support all Culdrose based units."
