About Us

Gnat & Hawk-resizedThe Red Arrows Association was formed in March 2012 and has gone from strength to strength. The Association membership has grown to over 200 ex-Red Arrows members from across the Gnat and Hawk eras with a good spread from both aircrew and ground crew alike.

I am pleased to report that the Association has the full support of Chief of the Air Staff and the command chain, as well as the previous Team Leaders and the current Team. The Association is open to all current and past members of the Red Arrows regardless of rank, Branch or Trade; Service or civilian.

The Association has successfully brought together many current and previous members of the Red Arrows through a series of events and communications, which included a very well attended Reunion at RIAT 2014 when we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the formation of the Red Arrows.

Our latest Chairman is the new Wg Cdr RAFAT, Wing Commander Martin Higgins, who returns from previously serving on the Team. He takes over from the inaugural Chairman, Wing Commander Neil Fraser, who did an excellent job in creating the Association and to whom we are all grateful for his splendid efforts.

badge_red_arrows_CMYKThe Association has a Committee that is made up of a wide mix of serving and retired individuals from across the Gnat and Hawk eras with the aim to represent a wide cross-section of the Red Arrows community.

This website is designed to provide all members with updates on the Association and forthcoming events.

Committee contact details may be found on the ‘Contact us’ page and I would encourage you to be in touch with any of us if you have any queries or suggestions. The Committee is always open to new ideas and comments as to how we can improve the Association, so please do contact us.
