All students have the opportunity to progress through the UBAS
flying programme, at no cost to students. The first solo flight is a
major milestone in the syllabus, reached by 15 UBAS students as of May
2020. After successful completion of the syllabus, students are
awarded the 'Preliminary Flying Badge', a fantastic achievement.
At UBAS, we fly the Grob Tutor from the airfield at RAF Cosford.
Flying takes place Saturday to Wednesday each week, and students can
sign up to each day individually to suit their university timetable
In addition to the Tutor, UBAS members often get the chance to fly as passengers in other military aircraft.
