Sixteen Sea King helicopters were decommissioned in 2016. This included two Sea King HU Mk 5 helicopters which were retired from Ministry of Defence service and placed in the disposal reserve, until being regenerated for lease to a company, HeliOperations Ltd, for training purposes. This lease ended in September 2018.
