Welcome to University Air Squadrons

University Air Squadrons

The 14 University Air Squadrons have a long tradition of offering flying training to undergraduates and a chance to experience life in the RAF. Joining a UAS will provide the perfect introduction if you're considering an RAF career, whether in a flying or ground-based role. However, there is no obligation to sign up and by getting involved you're making no further commitment other than your time and effort whilst you're there and the training and personal development you receive will give you a head start in whatever career path you choose.

This website is a window to the University Air Squadrons and their Headquarters at No 3 Flying Training School, RAF Cranwell. From it you can navigate to all of the related UAS sites to find out who and where they are, what they do and how to apply.
