The RAF Experience provides a unique opportunity for you to meet over 200 RAF personnel. They are all keen to share with you their day-to-day roles and experiences of the RAF. Here you can discover the career and sporting opportunities that the RAF provides.
The reach of the Royal Air Force is truly global whether it is supporting exercises at home, delivering vital humanitarian aid, assisting in global operations or demonstrating our talents on multi-national exercises in the USA. The pace of development and innovation has continued to make the RAF a first class force.
However, it is the aviators who bring it all together and provide the backbone to ensuring success. Operation Pitting was a prime example of this when, at short notice, all elements stepped up to enable over 15,000 Afghan refugees to be relocated by the UK alone.
The RAF Experience gives you the opportunity to meet these people, discuss the training they undergo and understand their roles and day-to-day responsibilities, together with some of the equipment they operate that enables the RAF to be a true force multiplier.
- "A true credit to the RAF, very informative and engaging."
- "Every part of it was excellent. All the personnel on duty were fun, approachable, helpful and informative. Nothing was too much trouble and I would have thought this would all have been an excellent recruiting tool."
- "The RAF crews on duty were great and their interaction with the public was exceptional. I witnessed a group of Help the Heroes supporters ask a pilot what he flew and if they could have a photograph with him. Both he and his co-pilot then promptly said "Come with us" and they walked a long way back to their Tornado, took them under the barrier and grouped them all together for a great few shots with them all and the aircraft. Sheer class."
