Manchester University Air Squadron was formed on 3 March 1941 and attached to Ringway aerodrome giving air experience flights to students in its Tiger Moth aircraft. After the war the Squadron reformed in Reserve Command equipped with five Tiger Moth T2s flying from Barton. Chipmunk T10s replaced the Tiger Moths in 1950 and flying transferred to RAF Woodvale near Southport in March 1953. In May 1973 Scottish Aviation Bulldog T1s were received and the following year, the name of the Squadron was changed to include The University of Salford. No. 10 Air Experience Flight, which formed in 1958 with Chipmunk T10s, amalgamated with the University Air Squadron at Woodvale in 1996 and shared the fleet of Bulldog T1 aircraft. In April 2001 the Bulldogs were replaced by Grob G.115E Tutors. These aircraft are fully aerobatic and are powered by the Textron-Lycoming 180hp engine. The motto, Scientia in alto, means Knowledge in the sky.
