Station Name: RAF Linton-on-Ouse

One of the busiest training airfields in the RAF, Linton-on-Ouse has been used as a Bomber, Transport and Fighter airfield in its long and interesting history since it opened in 1937. Since 1957 the main role of the Station has been pilot training, initially with the Jet Provost, but now with the Tucano T1. No 1 Flying Training School operates no fewer than 78 Tucano T1s at Linton-on-Ouse, providing basic flying instruction. Some aircraft are in the markings of Nos 72 (Reserve) and 207 (Reserve) Squadrons. Also flying at Linton is No 642 Volunteer Gliding School, equipped with Vigilant T1s.
