PEGASUS interacts with industry and the European Commission concerning aerospace education in Europe. In particular, Airbus points to PEGASUS universities as their primary recruitment base for aeronautical engineers.

New members are admitted following evaluation according to criteria that are established to define a minimum set of requirements concerning the size of the education program, number of student exchanges in Europe, facilities and connection to aerospace research in the universities. Currently, 25 universities are partners and a few new partners are in the process of being accepted as associate partners. KTH is the only Swedish university in the PEGASUS network.
