Visiting Aircraft

RAF Wittering’s airfield is large enough to accept all UK military types, which makes it a valuable Defence training asset. Whilst the Grob Tutor aircraft based at the Station do not fly at low level or at night, visiting aircraft from other military flying stations (including fast jets, multi engine and helicopters) will use the airfield for training purposes. On occasion, this will mean low level and night flying.
