Royal Air Force Wittering is one of the oldest flying stations in the Royal Air Force, and has played a prominent part in military operations and in the development of air power since 1916; it continues to do so today.
The Station is home to around 1500 RAF, Royal Navy, Army, Ministry of Defence and industry personnel. It has responsibility for a diverse range of operational units, mainly those which make up the RAF’s expeditionary engineering and logistics force. In addition, RAF Wittering supports a number of lodger units and their civilian and military personnel.
RAF Wittering continues to provide an area air traffic control service within its Military Aerodrome Traffic Zone and maintains an active airfield to support military flying activities.
