The team ensures that RAF and Army Air Corps helicopters as well as those of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm are kept in working order for their vital mission.

A five-strong team from 1710 Naval Air Squadron – who were known as the Mobile Aircraft Support Unit, or MASU, when they began in Helmand back in 2006 – are based at Camp Bastion, the hub of the British effort in the country.
