Welcome to RAF Northolt

Station Commander - Group Captain Andy Bacon ADC MA BSc RAF

A very warm welcome to the Royal Air Force Northolt Website.

If you happen to be posted here may I wish you an enjoyable tour at this busy but friendly Station set close to London but with extremely good links to the surrounding countryside. As an operational aerodrome since 1915, the Station enjoys close ties to the local community including some very good schools. The nearby town of Ruislip is blessed with a variety of good quality family-run shops. There are so many things to do in and around the area you and your family will be spoilt for choice.
If you are a visitor to our site, I hope you enjoy taking a look around and learn a little of what, how and why we do what we do! After all, we are part of 'your' Royal Air Force.
