Flying training in the Snowdonia Rotary - Mountain Flying Training Area (MFTA)

The Defence Helicopter Flying School (DHFS) is a tri-service unit based at RAF Shawbury, with each service has a 'shadow' squadron allocated, 60(R) Squadron RAF, 705 Naval Air Squadron and 660 Squadron Army Air Corps. Most of their activity is centred around their home base in Shropshire, however they can be occasionally seen flying further west to use the MFTA in Snowdonia.
