AIRCRAFT: THE WINGS OF THE ROYAL NAVY

Royal Navy and Royal Marine aircraft

Many Royal Navy and Royal Marine operations need support from the skies, and that’s when the Fleet Air Arm comes to the fore. This specialist aerial wing flies some of the world’s most advanced aircraft – in the most challenging of circumstances.

Fixed wing

Modern training craft from cost-effective tutor planes to Hawk MkI Jets to simulate ship attacks and air interceptions.

Helicopters

The helicopter is an integral part of operations, moving troops, protecting the fleet and even transporting vehicles and ships.

Historic

Respecting the brave bi-planes that protected our convoys, sunk 300,000 tonnes of shipping, and destroyed 20 U-Boats in WWII.
