History
RAF Dishforth opened in 1936. At the start of WW2 it was part of 4 Group, RAF Bomber Command, and used for recruit training. It was also used to launch night operations using Armstrong Whitworth Whitley medium bombers. Between 1943 and 1945 the station was used by No. 6 (RCAF) Group Bomber Command and was a sub-station of RAF Topcliffe.

Immediately after the war the station was used to convert aircrew to the Douglas Dakota transport aircraft. In the late 1950s, RAF Transport Command operated the Handley Page Hastings and Blackburn Beverley from Dishforth. From 1962 to 1966, it was home to Leeds University Air Squadron flying the Chipmunk T Mk 10. RAF Dishforth was home to 60 Maintenance Unit RAF between 1 March 1962 and 2 February 1966. It was also used as a Relief Landing Ground for the Jet Provosts of RAF Leeming with personnel deployed from RAF Leeming on a day-to-day basis.

The Royal Air Force left in 1992, and it transferred to Army Air Corps use, by 9 Regiment AAC, which operated two squadrons of Apache helicopters. In 2006/2007 the Apaches moved to Wattisham Airfield and Dishforth received three squadrons of Lynx Mk.7 & Lynx Mk.9A helicopters.
