Scotland's Finest, Britain's Best
ESUAS was established in 2003 and is one of 15 University Air Squadrons across the UK. We bring together students from ten different universities across the east of Scotland and students gain a valuable insight into what a career within the Royal Air Force (RAF) could entail. Whilst many students go on to pursue a career in the RAF, many also go on to other careers having had an exciting and unique experience.

ESUAS not only offers paid opportunities to undertake a rigorous flying programme with many students going solo, but also partake in adventurous training and sporting activities. For example this summer we have gone to Canada for a two-week canoeing expedition, and undertook local AT opportunities around Scotland, including canoeing, mountain biking and sailing. Alongside that, we have also raised over £3000 for charity this year alone, and gone on cultural trips to locations including to Berlin, to learn about the role of the RAF in a wider context.
ESUAS is an incredible experience which provides students with many no cost opportunities across their time at university. You gain valuable skills which will be important for any career, such as leadership, teamwork and confidence. The sense of comradery in the squadron is something we are very proud of and this is reinforced throughout the year with various dining in and town nights.
