Do you want to work at the frontline of the RAF; helping with the slick running of military airfields, overseas operations and radar control?

As an Air Operations (Control) Sergeant, you will become part of an elite team; coordinating fighter jets, working surveillance operations and even controlling unmanned aircraft to support missions at home and overseas.

Working as the backbone of a squadron, you will learn how to coordinate air traffic to and from military bases. You will be in the midst of the action as part of the team who can order Typhon jets to scramble at a moment’s notice to intercept suspect aircraft.

You can do all of this and receive world-class training in the defence of airspace control.
