The objective of all universities in the Partnership of a European Group of Aeronautics and Space UniversitieS (PEGASUS) network is to offer highly relevant educational and research programmes and thereby attract the best students and scientists. Coordinated developments, exchange of students and staff and innovation are the basis on which these objectives are achieved. The paper shows how PEGASUS is contributing to the increase in students’ mobility among the partner universities, providing a tool to visualise, illustrate and quantify these flows. The tool provides a mapping of agreements and flows, using data based on a questionnaire sent to all PEGASUS partners. The data is available from the courses offered in the years 2012–2019 and has been prepared for display in the Google Earth application. It is a very flexible tool that allows for multiple searching criteria: per university of origin, per university of destination, per country, per course, etc. The current state of international exchange is shown, emphasising the noticed strengths and weaknesses. Initiatives taken to improve the weaknesses in cooperation are discussed and summed up with final conclusions.
