Ghana Air Forces Base

Ghana Air Forces Base

The GHF headquarters and main transport airfield are located in Accra, close to Kotoka International Airport. Other GHF airfields include:

  • Tamale.
  • Sekondi-Takoradi.

GHF Air Force Station, Sekondi-Takoradi, started as RAF Station Takoradi, then it became Ghana Air Force Station, Sekondi-Takoradi, on 1 March 1961. The Chipmunk Basic Trainer Aircraft was the first aircraft used at the Station with an all Rank Air Force Station.

  • Accra.

The GHF Air Force station, Accra, came into being soon after the Royal Air Force (RAF) had taken over the administration from the Indian and Israeli Air Force officers at the beginning of 1961. The station was housed at No 3 hangar at the Accra Airport (Kotoka International Airport) with hardly any aircraft. The Unit had four main sub-units, i.e. the Administration Wing, Flying Wing, Technical Wing and Equipment Wing. The School of Technical Training was also located at this station.

The Station moved from No 3 hangar to its present location in Burma Camp towards the end of 1965.
