1 FTS Tactical Exercise Returns to The Army Aviation Centre, Middle Wallop

Ascent Flight Training Ltd is delighted to report the return of the Rotary Wing Tactical Exercise syllabus undertaken at the Army Aviation Centre, Middle Wallop in Hampshire. Ascent is proud to deliver flying training to the UK MOD through the United Kingdom Military Flying Training System. The Enterprise delivers basic and advanced rotary training at RAF Shawbury, with maritime focused training delivered at RAF Valley.  

The training takes place in close proximity to the Salisbury Plain Training Area (SPTA). Deploying to and operating from a Forward Operating Base develops trainees tactical, mission command and captaincy abilities. Access to SPTA (the largest land training area in Europe) provides a unique opportunity to develop and stretch trainees under controlled training conditions, preparing them for their Operational Conversion Units.
