RAF Sealand

RAF Sealand closed in 2006. The Electronics Business Unit of the Defence Aviation Repair Agency (DARA) occupies part of the Sealand site. The business unit is responsible for the repair and maintenance of Avionic equipment and operates as part of a Trading Fund of the Ministry of Defence.

Sealand's ranges are still used for shooting, where cadets from different services come to either compete or practice shooting.

History of RAF Sealand
It was originally a civilian airfield and was taken over by the military in 1916 for training. Two twin hangars, which were built in 1917, were used by the newly-formed Royal Flying Corps.

No 30 Maintenance unit was formed there in 1939. Two years later No 19 Elementary Flying Training School (EFTS) equipped with Tiger Moths was based at RAF Sealand. In 1951 the base was taken over by the United States Air Force. It was handed back to the RAF in 1957.

Sealand was a communications support base for RAF operations around the world. It functioned as a third-line repair base for avionics equipment for all three services until its closure as an RAF station in 2006.
