Located 4.6 km away from the historical and strategic town of Anuradhapura, SLAF Base Anuradhapura was the hub of all activity during the extensive conduct of Air Operations of the now concluded Humanitarian Operations and the previous Elam wars.

Through out the nineties this Base was the home to the No 01 Flying Training Wing which is known as the “Cradle of Military Aviators” in Sri Lanka. In 2009 The No 01 Flying Training Wing shifted to the SLAF Academy in Chinabay where it is located to date. This Base also houses the Eagles' Heritage Golf Course which is the only golf course in the Ancient Kingdom of Anuradhapura. This serene 9 hole course offers an 18 hole experience with different angles of tee ,and promises a challenging, enjoyable and unique round of golf for a par of 70, comprising nearly six kilometers of picturesque, undulating lush Bermuda grass fairways and Tifdwarf greens replete with tall magnificent trees. An enchanting view of the great Nuwara Wewa at the end of the runway enhances the experience, creating a challenging environment for an unforgettable game of golf.

SLAF Base Anuradhapura is now home to the No 06 Helicopter Squadron which operates MI 17 Helicopters. This Base is also the main adimintrative eliment of the Northern Air Command of the Sri Lanka Air Force and is commanded by Group Captain Amitha Jayamaha.
