Welcome to the RAeS Air Power Group

The Royal Aeronautical Society Air Power Group was established in 2000. It arose from the wish of the then President of the Society to promote interest in the study of air power and to enable the Society to offer views on air power topics.

It is composed of serving and retired members from all the Armed Services, from academia and from industry. It has no allegiance other than to the Society.
