Bristow Hosts Air Scouts At Newquay


Over 250 Air Scouts enjoyed a trip to Bristow’s search and rescue helicopter (SAR) base in Newquay as part of the organization’s 75-year anniversary celebrations.


Bristow Hosts Air Scouts At Newquay


Bristow, December 01, 2016 - Air Scouts from all over the country recently enjoyed a trip to Bristow’s search and rescue helicopter (SAR) base in Newquay as part of the organization’s 75-year anniversary celebrations.

The base hosted roughly 250 Air Scouts from all around the country and their leaders over two days while they enjoyed a five day camp in Cornwall to mark the occasion.

Mark Coupland, Bristow’s chief pilot of Newquay SAR said: “We were delighted to hear that the highlight for many was the trip to our base, which included a guided tour of our helicopters. The scouts were given the opportunity to sit in the cockpit while our pilots explained the different functions and equipment of the helicopter.

“It was a hectic couple of days which we gladly accommodated at the last minute to help the organization after their plans with another company changed. It’s an honour to be able to encourage the enthusiasm in aviation that was so well demonstrated by these scouts.”

As well as the adventurous activities the scouts normally enjoy in camp, they also took part in a number of other aviation-based activities, including parascending, a visit to an aviation museum, flight simulators, model aircraft flying, a tour of Newquay Airport and a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) session delivered by the RAF. The troop also enjoyed the Cornish scenery with a trip to Newquay beach.

Felicity Crook, Assistant Scout Leader, 6th Gosport Air Scouts said: “It was an amazing visit and our young people enjoyed it very much. We would like to say thank you to Shiner, Ginge and the team for making us feel so welcome.”

Air Scouts began in 1941 during the Second World War as a provision for young people too young for the Air Training Corps. But air activities formed part of the scouting program long before then. There are 6,000 Air Scouts in England.
