Helicopter and Aircraft Noise

Any member of the public who wishes to make a complaint about helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft activity within Low Flying Area 9 should contact the Corporate Engagement Relations Office between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, on 01939 251510

When night flying is in progress you should contact Station Operations 01939 250351 (Ext 7227).

RAF Shawbury Visit Enquiries

We arrange a number of group visits to RAF Shawbury, lasting about three hours, for organisations such as Parish Councils, Young Farmers, Rotary and Probus Clubs, Women's Institutes, Aircrew Associations, and other professional and veterans groups. The number of visits per year is limited so please email or telephone early to avoid disappointment! Visitors are given a briefing on the station's roles before being shown some of the Air Traffic Control and helicopter training facilities and the Aircraft Maintenance and Storage Unit.

Speaking Engagements.

If you would like a member of staff from the CERO Office to come and give a presentation (day or evening) to your group or club, please telephone or email to discuss dates and details. The standard presentation "RAF Shawbury - Past and Present" lasts about 45 minutes.
