Located on the small island of Anglesey off the northwest coast of Wales, Royal Air Force (RAF) Valley is home to 4 Flying Training School (FTS). Responsible for training the UK's next generation of fighter pilots, 4 FTS takes both RAF and Royal Navy (RN) students through Basic Flying Training (BFT) and teaches them to fly the latest RAF fast-jets prior to them being assigned to a Typhoon or Lightning Operational Conversion Unit (OCU).
There are three subordinate squadrons that make up 4 FTS – 4 (AC) Squadron and 25 (F) Squadron, both flying the BAE Systems Hawk T2; and 72 Squadron flying the Beechcraft T-6C Texan T1.
