The Royal Air Force Mountaineering Association (RAFMA) is the representative body for mountaineering as a sport within the RAF. It is also a lively, sociable and active mountaineering club for service personnel (including reserve forces), dependents and retired members. We are affiliated to the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) – join RAFMA and get club membership of the BMC, plus handy discounts with companies such as DMM Climbing.

We have around 500 members, with serving members found all over the world and across all ranks. Some love to crush plastic indoors, others prefer walking in red socks, some do both; as well as major high-altitude expeditions and going to the pub of course.

The Royal British Legion has started an exciting partnership with the RAF Climbing Team and the RAFMA. The Legion is the nation’s biggest Armed Forces charity, here for soldiers, sailors and airmen past and present, and their families, as well as championing remembrance across the nation since 1921. @PoppyLegion
