Welcome to the official website of the Royal Air Force College Cranwell; a thriving RAF Station in the heart of Lincolnshire. RAF College Cranwell has a long and distinguished history dating back to its foundation as a Royal Navy training establishment in 1916, and the current College Headquarters is situated in the iconic Grade 2* listed College Hall.

The RAF College Cranwell selects and trains officers and airmen aircrew to become the leaders of tomorrow, as well as supporting and directing RAF recruiting and initial training. It is also the home of a range of other important units including Headquarters Air Cadets. I hope that you will enjoy your time at RAF College Cranwell, whether it be long or short.
