RAF Valley is a Royal Air Force station on the island of Anglesey, Wales. The station provides advanced pilot training using BAE Hawk T2 aircraft.
No 4 Flying Training School takes Royal Air Force and Royal Navy pilots from No 1 Flying Training School at RAF Linton-on-Ouse and trains them to fly fast jets, prior to training on an Operational Conversion Unit.
RAF Valley is also home to two Search and Rescue lodger units: 202(R) Squadron trains military rotary crews in Search and Rescue and mountain and maritime skills and the RAF Mountain Rescue Service has its headquaters at RAF Valley, as well as a team, providing first response to military and some civilian aircraft incidents and emergencies.

Valley Wings is produced bimonthly

RAF Mona, also on Anglesey, acts as a relief landing ground.
After the Welsh Assembly Government in Cardiff gave permission to have commercial flights from Valley, two daily flights take place between Valley and Cardiff International Airport. This forms part of an initiative to boost the economy of North West Wales.
