The Royal Air Force School of Physical Training prepares physically agile Royal Air Force Physical Training Instructors who will train Armed forces personnel to contribute to, and to support, the United Kingdom's Defence effort. In that sense, the School's motto 'Viribus Audax' which means 'Bold in Strength' is particularly appropriate. I encourage you to visit our Website - we are working to make it better and we are responsive to suggestions on how to improve it further.
