Why Are We Here?
Welcome to RAF Valley
The Station Commander: Group Captain Nick Tucker-Lowe DSO MA MCMI RAF
The aim of this Station is:
- To train future fast jet aircrew
- To train Search and Rescue pilots and crew
- To save lives through the RAF Valley Mountain Rescue Team
The majority of sorties flown from RAF Valley are Hawk TMk2 operations executed by IV(R) Squadron.
The Station is proud to support Search and Rescue (SAR) training carried out by 202(R) Sqn, flying the Griffin and Augusta AW139 Helicopters.
In the fulfillment of this task, we are by far the busiest Station in the Royal Air Force
