Welcome to RAF Valley
Welcome to the RAF Valley Website.
For those of you who are posted here, may I wish you a most enjoyable tour at this busy Station- situated at the heart of Anglesey and close to Snowdonia National Park.
If you are a visitor to our site, please have a look around, see what we do and how we have fit into the North Wales community since the 1930s. You can investigate further on our varied social media sites.
The aim of this Station is clear:
- To train future fast jet aircrew.
- To train search and rescue pilots and crew.
- To save lives through Search and Rescue Operations.
The majority of sorties flown from RAF Valley are Hawk TMk2 operations executed by the newly re-born IV(R) Squadron and 208 Squadron.
The Station is proud to support operational Search and Rescue (SAR) operations with C Flight of 22 Squadron and SAR Training carried out by the SAR Training Unit (SARTU), flying Griffin and Augusta AW139 Helicopters.
In the fulfillment of this task, we are by far the busiest Station in the Royal Air Force.
