RAF Halton is home to an active military grass airfield where flying has taken place continually since September 1913. The airfield originally supported RAF technical training with aircraft types ranging from the bi-plane era to modern jet powered aircraft. In 1993 the No 1 School of Technical Training moved to RAF Cosford. Service-sponsored powered flying has continued uninterrupted since 1925 and 1930 for gliding.
