    History of this Location

    The heliport itself was opened when the Britannia Helicopter Flight moved here from RNEC Manadon, with a Dragonfly in 1962, to service the nearby Britannia Royal Naval College. A Wasp replaced the Dragonfly in 1967 and by 1981 a new Control Tower had been built. The Flight was disbanded in 1982 and the hangar which was constructed before 1963 had been removed by 1999. Only the Control Tower now remains (2010) on the edge of the Leisure Centre car park.
