Field Craft


Field Craft

Fieldcraft is an important element of Royal Air Force initial and ongoing training, which means it’s important for us too. It is one of the activities everyone looks forward to doing. But what is it? Put simply it’s learning about the skills you would need to survive and navigate yourself outdoors or in unfamiliar places.

It involves learning how to cook food from ration packs, building shelters, camouflage and getting from A to B covertly and most importantly working together as a team. The principle is the same for all fieldcraft activities – think on your feet, adapt to your situation and work to your team’s strengths.

So if you enjoy being outside, learning new skills (and don’t mind getting stuck in and a little bit muddy in the process!) then fieldcraft is for you.
