Quality education is one of many benefits of the RAF. All our personnel perform at the forefront of their field through continuous learning, hands-on experience and training. Whatever job your family member does, our trainees gain professional skills and qualifications.
Basic recruit training takes place over 10 weeks at RAF Halton for Aviators entrants or 24 weeks at RAF Cranwell for Officer entrants. It will make your family member fitter and more confident and prepare them to carry out their role in the RAF. It will also challenge them mentally and physically, and there are experienced instructors on hand to guide them through it.
