The RAF Personnel Recovery Unit (PRU) was previously known as Personnel Holding Flight (PHF) until an internal move from RAF High Wycombe to Air Command was made on 6 June 12.

Who does the RAF PRU look after?

  • PRU provides personnel, administrative and welfare support to those individuals who have been wounded, injured or are long term sick, causing them to be made medically non-effective or unfit further service. Each person who comes under PRU is assigned a Personnel Recovery Officer who works with them to create a suited Individual Recovery Plan enabling them to focus on their outcome: either their return to duty or transition to civilian life.
  • Outside of this, PRU parents personnel on Career Breaks in excess of one year and administers Deferred Resettlement.
  • OC PRU and WO PRU oversee the RAF’s Standing Committee of Adjustment (RAFSCA) which administers personal effects of Service personnel who sadly die whilst in Service.

Opening Hours: Monday – Thursday: 0830 – 1700 Friday: 0830 - 1600
