RAF Little Rissington is an RAF aerodrome and former RAF station in Gloucestershire, England. Built during the Expansion Period of the 1930s the station officially opened in 1938 as a grass airfield. During 1942, three asphalt runways were installed and all were extended during the war. The base was used for flying training, aircraft maintenance, and aircraft storage and assembly.
In 1946 the Royal Air Force Central Flying School (CFS) moved to Little Rissington. The airfield also became the home to the RAF’s aerobatics teams which included the Red Pelicans and later the Red Arrows and Vintage Pair. After the Central Flying School departed in 1977 the airfield was used by the Army until 1979. RAF Little Rissington was designated a satellite for RAF Brize Norton and RAF Benson. The airfield continues to remain active and is regularly used for elementary flying training, air drops, aircraft maintenance, and ground training.
