Now operated by Bristow Helicopters Limited on behalf of HM Coastguard, we’ve all seen the rescue helicopter at one time or another above the Solent, well this is a chance to visit the base from which the new Leonardo AW189 helicopter operates and learn more about the valuable service they provide.
The visit is free of charge, however we will have a collection, the proceeds of which will go to a charity nominated by the Unit.
