Milfield was an important airfield during World War 2 and was opened to its first flying unit 04 August 1942 when 11 Hurricanes flew in from RAF Crosby in Eden, Cumberland, most of which had fought in the Battle Of Britain. Flight training courses and combat training then commenced for the brave young pilots of this period in history.
Flying courses ran for 9-10 weeks, with 30 pilots graduating each week. The first 5-6 weeks were spent to prepare the pilots for basic solo flying on Hurricanes and then they would move on to Brunton for another 3-4 weeks of flying Hurricanes
Stage two training was in formations and simulated combat conditions.
