The available figures for the running costs of the Red Arrows for the last two financial years (FY) are as follows:

Financial year £ million
2011-12 10.04
2012-13 11.22

These figures include all operating costs, but exclude asset depreciation and the capital cost of aircraft or buildings.

Ministry of Defence officials are collating the information requested for FY 2010-11 and I will write to the hon. Member when this work is complete.

Substantive answer from Andrew Murrison to Kevan Jones:

I undertook to write to you in answer to your Parliamentary Question of 13 March 2014 (Official Report; column 325W) about the running costs of the Red Arrows. I can now confirm that the running costs for Financial Year 2010-11 were £9.73 million.

This figure includes all operating costs, but excludes asset depreciation and the capital cost of aircraft or buildings.
