•ToPioneer new routes and experiences in Nepal, including attempting British first ascents of mountains above 5500m.


The HV18 journey began in December 2016 when the application process opened. There was no requirement to have any mountaineering experience to apply –anyone with an appetite for the outdoors and learning new skills was welcome! Officer Cadet Bex Capewell-Salisbury is one of the University Air Squadron applicants and says “I applied for this expedition because Ilove climbing and mountaineering but Inever had the opportunity to be involved in something this big before”. With over 250 people applying for 80 places, the selection process has been achallenge! An ambitious programme of training has brought applicants together over 18 months to train all over the UK, from initial selection training in Wales, summer training in the English Lake District, and winter training across Scotland. Not confining themselves to the UK, alpine training events have also taken place as far afield as the Swiss Alps.


Deputy Expedition Leader Flt Lt Chris Fawcett said “This is abig commitment for those hoping to be successful on selection. Not just for those applying, but for their family who have been amazing by supporting them in their endeavours every step of the way”.


Final training preparations will culminate with apre-deployment training week, where successful team members will learn about remote and high altitude first aid, team-building and use of specialist equipment. All applicants, regardless of if they’re selected for the final expedition, will be part of the HV18 journey and gain valuable experience and qualifications.
