RNR Air Branch

RNR Air Branch

The Royal Naval Reserve Air Branch supports the Fleet Air Arm in times of stretch, crisis, tension and war. 

Branch members have either served as regulars in the Naval Service or have significant maritime aviation experience. The Branch covers all trades and specialisations of the Fleet Air Arm. 

For reservists to remain current, they are attached to Squadrons, Air Stations and Units across the country, which they support in a variety of ways, and where reservists conduct their training. 

Administered from the Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) at Yeovilton, there is also a satellite office at RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall. For anyone thinking of joining the RNR Air Branch, all enquiries must be directed to RNAS Yeovilton.
