The Reaper - a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) which has been operated from RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire since April 2013. They are flown by serving RAF Officers that have undergone training with the Reaper Formal Training Unit (FTU) in the USA. The FTU is completed at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, USA.

They can be posted to either XIII Sqn RAF Waddington (UK) or 39 Sqn Creech Air Force Base (USA) and will most likely fly an aircraft on operations over hostile territory, providing persistent ISR and if required, armed overwatch.
