Welcome to the RAeS Flight Operations Group
The Flight Operations Group represents the views and interests of those involved in all aspects of flight operations, and the committee includes commercial, private and glider pilots, flight engineers, air traffic controllers, cabin crew and managers.
The Group has a programme of visits to manufacturers, airfields and museums, and arranges conferences either alone or in conjunction with other specialist groups within the Society, or with other organisations such as The Honourable Company of Air Pilots.
The committee provides expertise to assist the Society in the formation of policies pertinent to flight operations.

Do you have an interesting aviation artefact with a story to tell?
For the Derby Branch AGM, in April 2015, we would like to call for speakers from within the Branch membership to take part in a special "Rummage in the Attic" lecture.
The format for the evening, after the AGM business, will consist of four short (10-15 min) presentations by volunteer speakers who will display an aviation artefact to the audience and give a description of the artefact's history and their personal link to it
