An airfield previously existed at Down Hatherley, and plans were in place pre-war to develop the new site. The RAF took over the site as a training school on 16 July 1936 for training until August 1946. Flying training was conducted at the site on Tiger Moths, but for 18 months during construction the practical element of the course had to be undertaken at the relief landing ground at RAF Worcester.
