Welcome to the RAeS Avionics & Systems Group
This Group provides a forum for those involved in all aspects of the wide range of avionics and mechanical systems on both civil and military aircraft.
The activities of the group cover the related interests of the airframe, engine, systems and equipment manufacturers during design, test and manufacture, as well as the in-service aspects of operation and maintenance.
The Group holds a number of conferences each year, many of which are organized jointly with other RAeS groups or other organisations, taking into account the interactions between these systems and other aerospace disciplines.
Past conference topics have included developments in aircraft icing protection, avionics for advanced combat aircraft, reducing the hazardous effects of on-board fire and explosion, overcoming electronic component obsolescence, improving aircrew situational awareness and the design and integration of complex avionics systems.

NEWS AND EVENTS
This workshop will bring RPAS civil, government and military operators, regulators, RPAS manufacturers and technology developers together to better understand and discuss the "detect and avoid" challenge.
The need to attract, inspire, recruit and train new staff on a sustainable basis has long been recognised by the aviation and aerospace sectors. New opportunities and pathways are now becoming available that will enable the industry to start filling the “skills gap”. The Society's second annual Education and Skills Conference will look at how various organisations and industry partners are working together to address skills needs for the aerospace and aviation sector, from engaging with and trai
The Cierva Lecture is named after Juan de la Cierva, FRAeS, an aeronautical engineer who pioneered rotary flight. In 1926 with the backing of the Weir brothers he formed the Cierva Autogiro Company and it was his development of rotor blade design and articulated rotor blades, which played a major role in the first successful helicopter in 1936.
