A second Hawk T2 squadron is to form at RAF Valley to provide Advanced Fast Jet Training (AFJT) of Royal Air Force and Royal Navy pilots.
Existing IV(AC) Squadron, which has operated from the Anglesey station since 2010, is to split into two with a reformed No.25 (F) Squadron taking on responsibility for the first phase of AFJT.
The move has been prompted by the increased demand for fast jet pilots on the front line to fly Typhoon and Lightning. The number of Typhoon squadrons was boosted last week with the reformation of 12 Squadron at Royal Air Force Coningsby.
The squadron is expected to reform by the end of the year.
