FAAM is established as a facility for the UK atmospheric science community; in particular scientists employed by the Met Office, or working in universities funded by the Natural Environment Research Council.
FAAM also has potential to carry out work for other UK government bodies (such as the Cabinet Office, or EPSRC funded researchers), remunerated work which is compatible with the facilities availability to UK science, or to work with BAe Systems on Private Venture work using the ARA. This sort of work might, for example, include investigations of aircraft environmental impact, testing of new aircraft systems, or work for overseas research bodies.
This section of the website provides details of application processes, and also of working practices for those with whom FAAM is working. Further information can be obtained by contacting the relevant member of FAAM's staff directly.
The flying calendar is shown in the Flying Programme section. Engineering work, including instrument installations, is also shown.
