Number 100 Squadron based at RAF Leeming provides air threat training for the Typhoon Force and Close Air Support training for land units.

However, when required, up to three of their Hawk T1 aircraft may be given over to Advanced Fast Jet Training, although the exact figure can vary according to need on a daily basis.
