The School was recently relocated to AFB Makhado from AFB Hoedspruit into a new purpose built facility with state of the art computer aided flight training instruments. They share this facility with the SAAF Gripen community.
During October 2007 there were several pilots that went solo on the Hawk Mk120.
The squadron also participated in the annual SANDF force preparation exercises and fired live cannon rounds and dropped live bombs. They also had a successful weapons deployment exercise to AFB Bloemspruit in 2007.
