The Defence Helicopter Flying School is where military helicopter pilots and crewmen for all of the UK's armed forces are trained. In this the first of 3 episodes on the Defence Helicopter Flying School I'm talking to the Commandant, Group Captain Jock Brown, who gives me an overview of the unit which is based at RAF Shawbury. Also in this episode I interview the squadron leaders of the 2 squadrons that teach single engine helicopter flying, both basic and advanced, here at the DHFS.
