The RAFs formed 13 Air Experience Flights AEFs numbered from 1 to 13 at RAF Stations around the country in September 1958 equipped with Chipmunk T.10 trainers and with 5 AEF operating a single Beagle Husky XW635 from 1969 to 1989. The Flights are manned by volunteer current or former RAF service pilot as instructors to provide Air Training Corps and CCF RAF air cadets with powered flying experience and training.

In September 1995 Air Experience Flights were merged with co-located University Air Squadrons and the Chipmunks retired with the AEFs using the University Air Squadrons Bulldog T.1s. No. 13 AEF at RAF Aldergrove was disbanded in 1996 and in 1999 the Grob Tutor T.1 began to replace the Bulldogs.

No. 5 Air Experience Flight RAF parented by Cambridge UAS is based at RAF Wyton with Cambridge UAS University Of London Air Squadron and 57R Squadron of 1 Elementary Flying School provide flying experience for Central & East Region and London & South East Region. 5 AEF is due to relocate to RAF Wittering in 2014 on the closure of the operational airfield at RAF Wyton.

This patch dates from the 1990s.
