Hi-viz for horses and riders
11th September 2021

RAF Shawbury has now received new stock of hi viz kit, in support of the Be Seen, Be Safer horse rider safety campaign. RAF Shawbury launched its Be Seen, Be Safer horse rider awareness campaign, in association with The British Horse Society in April 2015.  So far, the base has distributed a huge amount of free high visibility clothing to riders within Low Flying Area 9, which includes Shropshire and the borders of adjacent counties.

The aim of the campaign is to promote the wearing of high visibility clothing by riders so that they are more visible and can therefore be seen earlier by our helicopter aircrew. In addition, helicopter aircrew, based at RAF Shawbury, are trained to spot riders earlier and then take action to minimise disturbance whenever possible. 

If you would like a free set of hi viz (tabard, hatband and quarter -sheet) please visit their website: Flying Info | RAF Shawbury | Royal Air Force (mod.uk)
