The station opened in June 1940 and used by Training Command with 10 Bombing and Gunnery School taking up residence. Using Harrows and Battles the school trained bomb aimers and air gunners. In September 1940 the school was renamed 10 Air Observer School and started to train navigators as well in Whitleys and Bothas. The final name change was in September 1942 when the school became 10 (Observer) Advanced Flying Unit with Ansons replacing the Bothas.
