Contact or visit RAF

Public tours are generally not available at the RAF facility unless are part of an approved Open House event, or are requested and approved for educational purposes. NCAR/UCAR staff are welcome to visit RAF but larger groups are asked to coordinate with the RAF administration to make sure there are no schedule conflicts for the visit.
