I found some documents listing Russian Cadets on the www.group9may.com website.
It's in Russian and I can't immediately find the correct page, but I'll send you a pm with the documents

Hi

'Airmen Died in the Great War' (DVD-ROM) has three from the Russian Air Service 'Killed Whilst Flying'.

Cadet NOVIKOK with No.35 Training Squadron in Bristol F2A, A3325, on 22.09.17.

Cadet Corporal G V SMIRNOFF with No.2 Reserve Squadron in Maurice Farman MF11 Shorthorn, 6883, on 04.05.17.

Cadet A VINOGRADOFF with No.66 Training Squadron in BE.2E, 4420, on 06.09.17.

From this limited sample it appears they were spread around a bit in the RFC training system.

Mike

Russian cadet pilots were trained at Waddington.  In the first week of April 1918 there was a ground incident where an aircraft crashed into a static aircraft killing an American pilot and a Russian.  The incident was reported in the Lincolnshire echo.
