Thank you for taking an interest in Southampton University Air Squadron (SUAS).

Located at MoD Boscombe Down, we are one of 14 University Air Squadrons in the UK. Our aim is to attract high quality undergraduates and develop them through the activities we offer, helping to prepare them for future life either in the Royal Air Force or other civilian career.

At SUAS, we recruit students from 8 universities including Southampton, Portsmouth, Southampton Solent, Bournemouth, Brighton, Chichester and Sussex. Those successful are presented with endless opportunities - not only do we offer military flying training, but members can take part in adventurous training and sports including rock climbing, football, sailing, rugby, mountaineering, hockey, mountain biking, ski touring, sky diving and much more. These activities and opportunities are offered with no commitment to join the Royal Air Force after university.

Please take the time to browse our website to find out more, and if you like what you see please don’t hesitate to get in touch for more information about joining us.

Sqn Ldr Robertson, OC SUAS
