As at 28 February 2017 the total number of RAF personnel on secondment with BAE Systems in Saudi Arabia is 22. These personnel are in aircraft engineering support and aircrew instructor training roles.

RAF seconded personnel are paid directly by BAE Systems therefore there is no cost to the public purse.
