Decoration: 25m Range

The 25m Range

RAF Brize Norton is home to 5800 active Service Personnel, approximately a fifth of the regular Royal Air Force.

All serving personnel are part of the structure who provide the capability needed to ensure; the security and defence of the United Kingdom and its territories and to support the Government’s foreign policy objectives, particularly in promoting international peace and security.

In order to maintain a fit, qualified and capable workforce, there are mandated training packages that all personnel have to complete annually, including qualifying to fire small arms. To meet this commitment, the 25 metre range at RAF Brize Norton can have up to 25 people per day (week days) firing on it to qualify.

RAF Brize Norton has been working very hard to reduce the amount of times the range is utilised in order to ensure the impact of our training is minimised, particularly at night and over the weekends.
