25 Flight Army Air Corps

In August 2011 the British Army Training Support Unit Belize (BATSUB) completed the drawdown and reduced its support to the Field Army. 25 Flight Army Air Corps (25 Flt AAC) relocated to Middle Wallop, Hampshire, ending the permanent air support that British Armed Forces had provided to the Government of Belize since 1972.

The Flight’s main role was to support Land Forces in the UK, tasking included, Mission Support Training for pre deployment on operations for the Joint Helicopter Command (JHC) and the Infantry Battlegroups, providing a much needed lift capability. The Flight was also instrumental in giving support to Operation OLYMPICS under the Strategic Joint Command.

25 Flt AAC relocated to Kenya in March 2013, as part of the Joint Helicopter Force (Kenya) (JHF(K)) operating three Bell 212 aircraft. They will be responsible for providing 24/7 medical evacuation and range clearances for British Army Battlegroups conducting pre-deployment training in British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK).
