BUAS is established for up to 75 students. This normally enables up to 30 students to be recruited each year, dependent on the number of sponsored students remaining beyond the 2 year point.
BUAS flying is conducted at Boscombe Down near Salisbury in Wiltshire. BUAS HQ is currently at Azimghur Barracks, Colerne, near Bath. The HQ will move to a new site in the coming months which will remain close to the main student population of Bristol and Bath.
